Biomechanical Assessment & Orthotic Prescription
Heel pain (plantar fasciitis)? Shin splints? Knee pain (Patellar pain)? Hip or back pain? Biomechanical Assessment & Orthotic prescription will help.
If your foot is mis-aligned and rolls too far one way or the other it can cause a chain reaction up your lower limb from your foot through your knee, into your hip and into your lower back. Orthotics work by realigning the foot with the exact individual correction you require.
Orthotics are corrective insoles designed to resolve biomechanical complaints and re-align feet and ankles to their natural position and so correct body posture and improve function.
Orthotics can be:
• Custom Made or
• Off the shelf
