Orthotics are often a little of the unknown.
Do you really need them? Will they work? What makes one pair better than another?
Orthotics are innersoles or shoe inserts designed to support the natural contours of the foot whilst correcting alignment and improving foot function in general. Podiatrists use Orthotic devices for treatment and rehabilitation of foot conditions such as Heel Pain, Plantar Fasciitis, Diabetic foot ulcers and ankle sprains to name a few.
Here at Adrenalin Podiatry, Podiatrist for sports injuries, we offer a full biomechanical assessment for Football/Soccer players. The aim of this assessment is to provide a comprehensive understanding of the athlete’s walking, running and playing style. This time allows for areas of concern for the player’s feet, ankles and knees to be highlighted and discussed in order to implement interventions that may assist with the prevention of injuries to the player.
