Our osteopaths have many years’ experience providing Foot Arch Supports alongside osteopathic treatment. We offer both online telehealth and hands on treatment to help you with Foot Arch Supports.

Orthotics are inserts placed in shoes to support atypical movement of your feet. If a person positions their feet and ankles in an abnormal way during movement, this can cause pain in these areas, as well as other areas in the body.

Orthotics are used to help distribute your weight more evenly across the whole surface of your foot. This relieves pressure and offers cushioning, whilst providing support.

Though the main problem lies with the feet and ankles, poor positioning of these areas can cause problems that you may not be aware of. Orthotics may be a good choice for back pain and arthritis too on top of foot, ankle and leg pain.

Together with osteopathic techniques and exercises, orthotics can help to correct feet that frequently roll out of position. Wearing orthotics in your shoes also provides additional support to your arches.

We work with registered podiatrists and chiropodists when there are foot health issues or you need bespoke orthotics.

Assessment

First, we look at the body as a whole in relation to the feet. During assessment, we take your spine, posture and walking gait into account. Please bring old orthotics and shoes with you.

Physical Tests

Then we ask you to perform a few physical tests, such as squats and lunges. This is so the osteopath can analyse your positioning and posture during movement.

Choosing Orthotics

If you already use orthotics, after your assessment, your osteopath will let you know whether they need updating. If you are new to orthotics, they will choose the best size and fit that they think will work best for you.

Self-care

To ensure that the problem does not persist, the osteopath will also prescribe exercises for you to carry out at home.
