Arch Supports (Orthotics)
BIOMECHANICS is the study of gait, both walking and running
Why is foot function important?
The foot acts as a foundation for movement and is a highly complex organ combining balance and propulsion. Misalignments can affect motion higher up into the body, causing all manner of foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.
ORTHOTICS / ARCH SUPPORTS
It is a common misconception that one type of orthotic fits all. There are hundreds of different foot conditions, each needing a slightly different orthotic prescription.
These can be effectively used to correct biomechanical problems by realigning the body to relieve stresses being caused at any point from hip to heel.
After many years in practice, Mike is particular in his choice of orthotics. He offers a wide range of quality orthotics and insoles to suit most budgets and pathologies. Prices range from £45 to £250.
Premade Orthotics Mike was involved with researching a system of semi-customised orthotics over 5 years and had his results published in a professional journal. These types of orthotics can be customised and issued immediately on the premises.
Fully Customised Orthotics
These fully prescriptive devices are made to measure after taking casts of the feet. With the use of CAD/CAM technology these produce some of the most advanced, hard-wearing and comfortable orthotics on the market.
“Having been a recent sufferer of a painful heel condition, I can now fully attest to how bespoke orthotics can resolve a condition and allow the return to normal sporting activity.
