Foot orthoses are insoles that are custom made in the clinic to ease foot pain and improve your walking/running. We make all our insoles on site, so if you need them, you will generally get them on the day of your appointment. We can do ‘Casted Orthoses’ where plaster of Paris casts of you feet are required, but this is a much more expensive process and generally not needed. Research shows that there are no differences in the action of insoles made in these different ways.
Some foot problems require insoles to be worn all the time but many of the Musculoskeletal (MSK) problems we see, only reqiure them for a short period of time, to help with the rehabilitation process. Generally ‘comfort is king’ and we like to make sure that you can walk comfortably with your insoles before you leave the clinic.
