Orthotics and Insoles
Orthotics are shoe inserts designed to support, align, or improve the function of the foot. They are used to treat a number of conditions that affect the lower limb. Depending on your particular complaint, orthotics can be cushioning, pressure relieving, or functional.
Personally customised orthotics can be made of a soft or hard material (including a lightweight carbon fibre option), full length, or three-quarter length, again depending on your particular foot problem.
Podiatrist Marie Whitfield will assess, diagnose, and then design and dispense a pair of orthotics for your particular problem and have you back on your feet and pain free as soon as possible.
How orthotics can help:
- Offloading ulcers, corns, calluses or bony prominences
- Limb length discrepancies
- Balance and stability
- Injury prevention and rehab
- Support healthy foot and lower limb function
- Increase shock absorption
- Support children’s feet as they grow
- Support tired aching feet.
- Some knee, hip, back and ankle complaints
