Custom foot orthoses are prescriptive devices that are worn in the shoes to address any biomechanical issues that may be contributing to pain in the feet, ankles, legs, knees, hips and lower back. They can be made in a variety of materials and styles to suit the needs of the patient and are designed to last several years before needing replacement.
Orthotic therapy has been shown to be beneficial in the management of many painful conditions not limited to:
- Plantar Fasciitis/Fasciopathy
- Achilles Tendinopathy
- Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints)
- Patellar Femoral Pain Syndrome
- Lower Back Pain.
