    An orthotic device (or orthoses) is a shoe insert which you may be recommended following a biomechanical assessment / gait analysis with a Podiatrist. These can be either pre-fabricated devices (not bespoke to an individual but a cheaper option) or custom made devices which are manufactured from a plaster cast of the feet and a bespoke prescription.


    • Improve shock absorption
    • Improve stability (proprioception)
    • Alter problematic foot mechanics
    • Change moments around joints (e.g. decrease pronation at the sub-talar joint)
    • Reduce force within injured tissue
    • A flatter abdomen, toned arms and thighs and a stronger back
    • A refreshing mind-body workout
    • Sport Enhancement

    Orthoses will usually feel very strange at first and a period of slow and gradual introduction is often advised. You can often play sport on an orthotic device within 2 weeks of its issue, although everyone is different with respect to how they adapt to this change in position and movement of the foot.
