Orthotics

Footwear - Orthotics

Orthotics are sometimes used in the treatment of plantar fasciitis, achilles tendon pain, and heel spurs, among others. 

If you are having symptoms related to your foot biomechanics that cannot be controlled by exercise and the appropriate choice of footwear, orthotics may be an option. These are custom-made inserts that you can put into all of your footwear. They correct the alignment of your foot to give you the control that you need while running or walking.

We stock both off the shelf and semi-customised insoles, and can also fit for customised orthotics.

Being an avid fitness enthusiast for some time, I have been fairly lucky in avoiding injuries. However, over the past 12 months on two separate occasions I have picked up minor (but painful) injuries.

On both occasions I attended East Coast Physio where the problems were diagnosed and quickly resolved via single sessions coupled with some excellent advice on how to manage the problems further myself. East Coast Physio provide a very friendly, professional service which I highly recommend.
