ORTHOTICS.
Many people now wear orthotics as a treatment for their foot and gait conditions, but what are they and how do they work?

If you have ever experienced aches, pains or twinges in your feet and legs while standing, walking, exercising or taking part in sport, this may well be due to poor alignment of the feet and lower limbs. The biomechanics of the feet and lower limbs refer to the complex series of movements that enable walking and any anomalies in this process can lead to pain – not only in the feet, but elsewhere in the body such as ankles, legs, Knees, hips and back.

FOOT14(E)

An Orthotic Specialists can examine your walking characteristics to identify any biomechanical problems, and check to see if the joints and muscles in your feet and legs are functioning normally. They can then prescribe and manufacture corrective devices called orthotics to help resolve your condition which can be used by Adults and Children for every day use or sporting activities, where as a podiatrist would send your details and prescription off to a third party to manufacture your orthotics even though they have never seen you feet and if you also needed a raise or footwear adaption added to your footwear you would find that a podiatrist would not be able to carry this work out for you.
In some cases, to resolve your problems it is best to prescribe a combination of orthotics and footwear adaptions, for example someone with different leg lengths, unless the difference between the legs is only a few millimeters and a compensating raise can fit inside their footwear then the compensating raise would need to be fitted to the outside of their footwear with orthotics worn inside their footwear to hold and realign the feet.

FOOT3(E)

Orthotics are designed to alter the way your feet and legs work, restoring more normal function and relieving stress on the painful areas. They can be manufactured from a number of different materials, ranging from soft foams to firm high density EVA, and are normally designed to the customer’s needs and their desired use, so they could be full length or 3/4 length, very thin for smart or stylish footwear or a moulded EVA pair for sports and leisure footwear.

Most types of everyday footwear and sports footwear can be adapted
to adjust for trainer raisedifferences in leg length, and other foot, leg, back and joint problems to improve function, gait and help relieve pain whether used with or without orthotics, this is usually achieved by fitting an outside raise to the sole and heel of the footwear and in some cases also include a small raise on the inside of the footwear also wedges, floated or flared heels, rocker soles etc can be fitted if required.
