How Orthotics Work

An orthotic is intended to mechanically compensate for a skeletal malalignment.

Orthotics can be used to:

  • Control, encourage, guide or limit certain movements of joints
  • Promote or restrict muscle actions.
  • Reduce or redirect weight bearing forces to minimise shock and maximise propulsion
  • Aid rehabilitation from fractures and accommodate deformities or asymmetries in bone structures
  • Correct the shape and/or function of the body, to provide easier movement capability, reduce pain, and slow the rate of joint degradation

Mrs. D. Mundy

I am so grateful to you. I stuck a small pad under the place you indicated I would need it with amazingly immediate relief. Of course it is only a very temporary measure but it just proves that you are right. I look forward to receiving my orthotic insoles!

Mr. C. Goodall

I've been treated by many different people with many different techniques, but with your insoles my back is now more mobile and less painful than it has been in over 20 years!

I owe you a pint or two.

Mr. P. Blennerhassett

I'm delighted with the results in terms of pain relief and ability to walk freely again! After suffering terrible heel pain for a considerable time they have made a new man out of me. I'm so pleased that I've ordered 2 extra pairs to save moving them around all the time!
