At bt8podiatry our aim is to keep you ACTIVE and PAIN FREE
WHAT ARE ORTHOTICS?
Orthotics are devices that are placed into the shoe to correct or prevent lower limb abnormality. At bt8podiatry our othotics are designed to match the exact requirement of each foot thus improving stability and comfort.
WHY WOULD I NEED CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS?
When you are standing or walking, the first priority for your foot is to produce a foundation capable of supporting the entire body, irrespective of the contour of the surface you walk on.
You may need orthotics if you are experiencing the following:
Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)
Joint and Ankle pain
Lower back pain
Corns and callus may present.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms we can help you! At bt8podiatry we carry out a full biomechanical examination to identify the problem. Here we look at your gait (walk or run) and identify any abnormalities that may be causing the problem. If appropropriate your management programme will include a set a custom-made orthotics alongside a combination of other therapy that your podiatrist will prescribe if appropriate
Richard visited us complaining of foot pain. He was experiencing pain when running along the arch of his foot. During gait analysis at bt8podiatry we noticed that Richards feet were flat, we were then able to link this to the pain he was experiencing when he was running. further examination and assessment was carried out and Richard was prescribed a custom set of orthotics to support his arch when running. Richard is now able to compete in competitive running events, something he wasn't able to do before. Here is just one example of patient that we were able to keep active and pain free.
“ I visited these guys for a set of support insoles, and they did not disappoint. They were extremely knowledgable and professional, couldn’t have asked for better service. The insoles themselves are also fantastic, with a perfect custom fit they are comfortable and give me that added support which I was lacking before. Couldn’t recommend these guys more highly!”
