How Can Custom Orthoses Help Me?
Foot & Ankle Pain
Whether you are suffering from Plantar Heel Pain, Achilles Tendinopathy, Midfoot Arthritis or many other Foot & Ankle injuries – Custom Foot Orthoses can be of great help in your rehabilitation.
The Orthoses we prescribe at Northernhay Clinic are fully custom made and tailored to your individual foot structure. 3DFootprint scanning and printing technology allows us to to capture a truly Custom Orthotic shape.
Custom Foot Orthoses are often used in the treatment of Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome, commonly known as ‘Shin Splints’. Foot Orthoses can effectively help to reduce bending and pulling forces on the Shin (Tibia Bone) as well as addressing other foot function issues that may contribute to Shin Pain.
Custom Foot Orthoses often reduce symptoms of Anterior Knee Pain (Patellar Tendinopathy and Patellofemoral Pain).
Custom Foot Orthoses are also often used in treating Knee Osteoarthritis. They can effectively modify the way forces interact in your knee joint, allowing the offload of painful structures.
In our clinical experience Hip Pain is often a secondary complaint or appears alongside Lower Limb Pain. Hip Pain can be caused by trauma, overuse, age or inflammatory and systemic conditions.
Custom Foot Orthoses can be used in the treatment of Hip Pain to control the rotation of the limb. We often add some gait education and strength exercises to help ease your pain.
Lower Back Pain
Lower Back Pain is extremely common. Often people will put up with Lower Back Pain without knowing what is causing it.
Custom Foot Orthoses can help address issues such as Leg Length Inequalities which often leads to Lower Back Pain. Custom Foot Orthoses can also help to control force, motion & rotation in the foot, helping to manage Lower Back Pain.
Posture & Comfort
Whether you are walking, running, golfing, skiing or driving, posture can be crucial to the management of Back Pain.
Custom Foot Orthoses can help you greatly with postural awareness, the way you carry yourself and general comfort. Your feet are your foundations and what happens at the foot is reflected through out the rest of your body.
