We can help you with any of the above problems. Our Team prescribes insoles day in and day out in the clinic for various types of injuries and ages. We work with children from 7 years old onwards. We have great success with our insoles alongside our expert advice, hands on treatment and our guided exercise programs.
We often meet patients who have bought insoles off the shelf in a shop that did not work. The problem with this is there is no advice with the insole. Often these devices will not be specific to you and may not have the type of correction you need for your injury or pain. This why they often fail to help. Save your money and come and see an expert.
The difference with our insoles and you buying them off the shelf in a shop is that ours are prescription devices made for problematic feet. The reason why our insoles work is that our Physiotherapists know exactly how much support they are giving you and exactly where that support is going. For example, someone may need support under the arch of the foot for ankle pain whereas someone else may need support under their heel for pain in their Achilles. We can pinpoint where we want to offer support and how much support is needed. This is in conjunction with our expert advice has proven to work well for our patients providing effective results.
We find the most effective treatment plan is a combination of our hands on therapy, gold standard advice, stretching and strengthening exercises programs incorporating a whole-body approach.
An orthotic is a device placed between the sole of the foot and the inside of the shoe that will realign the foot. It will help ease the tension and stress put on muscles, tendons and ligaments due to poor alignment, fallen arches or various other treatable problems.
Your physiotherapist will conduct a range of tests known as a biomechanical assessment. This will involve being assessed in standing, walking and in a non-weight bearing position. You may be asked to walk up and down so the physiotherapist can observe what’s happening with your feet, knees and hip joints when you move. From the assessment your physiotherapist will be able to advice you on the best insole for your needs.
Orthotics will be used alongside rehabilitation exercises while wearing the device in your footwear. It is important to strengthen the muscles surrounding the foot in the neutral position, where there is the least amount of stress on the foot. The insoles will help keep you in this position.
