What are Orthotics/Insoles?
An orthotic, is a corrective device worn inside a shoe, which can help the muscles, tendons and bones of your feet and lower legs function without you suffering from pain and or stiffness.
Custom-made orthotics (the type we provide) are manufactured from a 3-D image of your foot (from a laser scanner) using raw materials.When appropriately prescribed and custom-made for you, orthotics can decrease pain, not only in your feet, but more commonly in other parts of the body, such as your knees, hips and lower back.
You may have seen shoe inserts in shoe stores, retail stores and some pharmacies, however these one size fits all and are generic and not made to measure, so they may actually make the imbalances and instability worse.
The reason why we use the latest 3D Foot Scanner technology is to minimise the chances of human error found in the old traditional ways of prescribing. Unlike the one size fits all orthotic/insole from the local shop we are affiliated with Foothealth UK which is a fastest growing and respected supplier of foot orthotics to produce bespoke top-quality orthotics/insoles lasting for a very long time.
