Do you suffer from needless pain?

Many people will suffer from pain during their day to day business, most people would just ignore this pain thinking there’s nothing that can be done about it. Well functional Foot Orthotics (F.F.O) are specialist orthotic insoles that can correct your posture and reduce the pain that these people endure.

Your foot is complex dynamic structure capable of absorbing and releasing energy to make walking and running as efficient as possible. When a failure in the foot occurs it can have wide spread effects. This is because no joint works in isolation but creates altered biomechanical forces in near and far joints. In other words a small foot problem can cause ankle, knee, hip or even back pain.

Functional Foot Orthotics

Some problems can be solved by using Functional Foot Orthoses such as, foot pain, back pain, plantar fasciitis, shin splints and leg pain. The device used to help these problems, when correctly prescribed can maximise the function of the foot, providing pain relief, comfort and improving levels of activity.

Sports Orthotics

Sports activities create specific issues. Whether it will be field sports, track sports or leisure activities, good foot dynamics are essential and where foot function is poor in the active individual it can lead to injury and early fatigue. For the foot to work as effectively as possible it has long been recognised that functional foot devices can play an essential role in maximising the biomechanical efficiency of the foot thereby improving sporting performance.

Our Senior Orthotist works along side fellow professionals where appropriate, i.e. Orthapaedic Consultants, Doctors Physiotherapists and Chiropodist/Podiatrist, to help ensure the most effective outcome of treatment.
