Do your suffer from foot, ankle, shin, hip or back pain? One of the main causes of these symptoms are flat feet/fallen arches. The most effective way to treat this is through orthotics, the way this works is that a custom made insole can retrain the muscles in your foot to perform their job more efficiently and support your body better when weight bearing.
Your feet are the body’s first contact point to the ground which means they work hard and sometimes fall short. Orthotics help realign, reduce pressure and stop negative compensations occurring further up the body, such as lower back, hip and knee pain. They also help with many foot problems (pes planus, hallux valgus, plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, mortons neuroma) and many sportsmen and women have found them to have increased their performance.
