What Are Orthotics?
Orthotics are temporary or permanent insoles prescribed to correct the biomechanics of the foot and their associated symptoms. Orthotic devices can vary from simple anti pronatory devices to customised insoles. Dependant on your need, we can prescribe numerous shell strengths and flex so that they are perfectly suited to your requirements be it, field sports, runners, golf or even women's fashion. Our physiotherapists with post graduate training in this area will decide with you what best suits your needs and footwear.
We provide both temporary orthotics or if required custom made orthotics.
Custom made orthotics are made by taking a mould of your foot using a foam box. We use Footcare NI who are a leading supplier of orthoses in Ireland. Our orthotics are custom made devices which are made to measure and unique to the individuals problems and requirements. Each device is individually designed and handmade to your requirements. The orthotics are ready for collection within 4 weeks of scanning.
