What are orthotics?

Orthotics are a type of insole that are used inside your shoes. They are used to help rectify certain mechanical abnormalities in the foot. Pain may be felt in the feet or legs when walking, running, or maybe even all the time. We assess how you walk or run and make a note of any problems; this is called a ‘gait analysis’. We can then recommend a ready-made orthotic or one which is custom made for your foot. Back pain, knee pain and ankle pain are some of the conditions that can be treated by wearing orthotics.
