When your feet are not transmitting your weight to the ground properly, this can cause problems higher up the body - in the knees, hips or lower back. Orthotics can be placed in your footwear to correct these imbalances and reduce problems elsewhere.
Suffer with walking pain and/or discomfort? A biomechanical assessment & basic gait analysis can determine whether made-to-measure foot orthotics would help improve posture, as well as reduce the pain associated with walking.
Please ask to speak with an Osteopath or Podiatrist for more information.
Biomechanical assessment - £57.00

Custom made orthotics range from £195.00 to £290.00
Custom made, simple insoles cost £58.00 (including 1 pair of temporary insoles – £8 if bought separately)
A basic fitting using template orthoses can reduce the cost of your appliances, but for complex foot problems, a specialist cast of your foot will need to be made (at a higher cost). Additions or cut-outs can be incorporated and the type of plastic used will depend on your weight and the needs of your feet. Minor adjustments to these devices can be performed (but this may require sending the orthoses back to the factory).
Heat moulded (off-the-shelf) Orthotics cost up to £50.00
A standard, semi-rigid orthotic can be used as a starting point - these can be adjusted slightly using a heat gun to soften the arch (which then hardens after 5 minutes).
Silicone insoles (various sizes and types available), cost up to £25.00
A range of insoles are available to allow shock absorption in certain parts of the sole or heel, or raises under the ball of the foot to encourage better foot function.
Your podiatrist or osteopath can advise which type of orthotic or insole would provide you the most benefit.
