Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. They support the weight of everything above them, so a small problem in your feet can change the way you walk. This will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture leading to joint stress higher up the body, and lead to problems such as:
Foot Pain • Knee Pain • Hip Pain • Back Pain
This can have a severe impact on the day-to-day function of our body and quality of your life.
If you have pains in the feet such as tired aching feed, heel pains, bunions, metatarsalgia (pain in the balls of feet), callouses and hammer toes this can be a result of faulty alignment of joints in the foot and altered biomechanics. If the pain is worse or brought on by standing, walking or running then orthotics will help realign joints and reduce symptoms.
Customised orthotics are not just insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances personalised to correct your specific foot imbalance. They fit into your shoes as comfortable as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise measurements of your gait (the way we walk).
This is turn reduces problems associated with pressure points, muscle strain and abnormal forces on the ankles, knees, hips and spine.
Customised orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.
Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored.
