Orthotics

The clinic offers an orthotic service for both children and adults. Painful feet, knees, hips & back are often caused by a biomechanical problem – the misalignment of the foot, ankle and leg. We can fully assess and diagnose the source of your problems. We may prescribe orthotics – a shoe insole that allows you to walk in as close to a sub – talar neutral position as possible. This will reduce the rotational forces going through the foot and up the leg to the back. The orthotics can be custom made or over the counter.

Children can present with flat feet, toe-in/out walk, walking on toes, loss of balance and co-ordination – all of which can be helped with orthotics and an appropiate rehabilitation programme.
