Your feet are your first shock absorbers, so if they are functioning imperfectly then your knees, hips and back take the strain. Dysfunction of foot dynamics can affect the angles and function of joints throughout the body. This can cause excessive wear and tear which can pre-dispose injury. These orthotics are designed and made by a plaster-casting process so that they are unique to you and the function of your feet. By supporting your natural foot arches your orthotics can encourage correct alignment of your ankle, knee and hip joints which may improve function and posture.
Orthotics are suitable for adults and children of all ages. Your orthotics can be transferred between footwear including sports specific boots and are guaranteed to last for years.
