Orthotics comprise of a custom made insert or footbed fitted into a shoe. They provide support for the foot by redistributing ground reaction forces as well as realigning foot joints while standing, walking or running.
They are used by everyone from athletes to the elderly to accommodate biomechanical deformities and a variety of soft tissue inflammatory conditions such as plantar fasciitis.
What are Orthotics used for?
Orthotics can also be used to help relieve foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain and low back pain. In the athlete they can improve athletic performance and decrease chance of injury.
Here at Freedom Spinal Health we use the latest Gaitscan technology from The Orthotic Group to assess gait and foot function and prescribe the correct orthotic to meet your needs.
