Orthotics can help to relieve pain and prevent injuries
Orthoses (or "Orthotics") are shoe inserts that a provide support and stability for when you are on your feet. Foot orthoses allow the muscles, tendons and bones of the feet and lower legs to function at their highest potential. They can contribute to a decrease in pain by improved stabilisation and body alignment and can aid in the prevention of progression or development of a deformity.
They are prescribed to:
Reduce the symptoms associated with many foot related problems
Accommodate foot deformity and relieve pressure on problem areas of the foot
Improve foot position and the overall biomechanical function of the foot, leg and spine.
By encouraging healthy movement, orthotics can help to relieve pain and prevent injuries.
