Laser Scanned Custom Orthotics

What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom Orthotics are a means of aligning the foot and ankle to their correct position, helping to correct structural defects and specific imbalance in your foot. By restoring your proper alignment through wearing orthotics we can redirect and reduce certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Orthotics can also be seen as a support, reducing the pressure on soft tissue and joints helping you to walk more comfortably. They are made from a precise laser scanned imprint of your foot and fit comfortably inside your shoe, rather like a normal innersole.

Why do I need Custom Orthotics?

You are likely to need custom orthotics if you suffer from conditions such as flat feet or high arches. They are also used to reduce heel pain, metatarsal pain (pain along the ball of your foot) and callous /hard skin formation. Since our feet are the foundation of the body, orthotics can also help to eliminate related ankle, knee, hip and back pain too. By stabilising your foot position strain on the muscles, tendon bones and joints is reduced which brings you relief from discomfort felt throughout your entire body. So, if you suffer from any of these conditions then seeing one of our team will be the fastest way to achieving relief and more comfortable movement.

How are Custom Orthotics diagnosed and fitted?

Our custom orthoses are made from an accurate prescription to help restore balance throughout the musculoskeletal system and improve foot function. In order to ensure that you have the very best opportunity to get the most benefit from your orthoses we provide a package of care. This includes the orthotics themselves and their fitting and any further analysis needed at that point. You will need to be reviewed after a short period of time as often the foot needs help to adapt to its new way of working. As such, these follow-ups are also included as part of our package so we know that we are looking after you as well as possible.
