The foot orthotics we supply are bespoke insoles (made using state-of-the-art equipment) worn inside your shoes to help correct and assist your feet to function more efficiently.
Prescription or bespoke orthotics can help to restore a more natural walking pattern by providing support to the feet and toes. We have prescribed foot orthotics for over 16 years a decade to a wide range of people, including athletes, grandparents, office workers and gym-goers.
If you have regularly sore feet, one leg shorter than the other, shoes which wear out quickly and unevenly, bunions, corns, fallen arches, knocked knees or bowed legs, or if you play sport regularly (e.g. running, tennis, golf etc) you may benefit from wearing our bespoke orthotics.
It’s important to note that bespoke orthotics should only be prescribed by a healthcare professional after a thorough evaluation and diagnosis. Proper fitting and use of bespoke orthotics can help alleviate pain and improve function, but incorrect use or fitting can lead to further problems.

Poor Foot Function
Poor Foot Alignment
Hamstring & Achiles (Calf) Strains, Achilles Tendonitis, heel spurs
Our bespoke shoe inserts support all three arches in your feet. This creates a healthier, more attractive posture, plus a more stable foundation for your entire body. Though they may go unnoticed, subtle imbalances can contribute to postural misalignments, knee pain, hip problems, head tilt, forward leaning head carriage and general fatigue.
Best of all, not only do they work great, they feel great!
They are insoles that you place in your shoes, which can help to correct bio- mechanical foot issues which affect how you walk, stand or run.
You can buy off-the-peg orthotics from supermarkets, but these are not tailored to your specific needs. They can also be quite thick, which means using these insoles can limit your choice of footwear.
Bespoke orthotics are the best because they are just that—specific to you and how your feet function.
We have a state-of-the-art scanning machine which has over 4,000 sensors and assesses how your weight is distributed through your feet when you walk and stand. The orthotics we supply are only 2 to 3mm thick, so they fit most, if not all shoes, and generally last 5 to 7 years.
Once an examination has been carried out, coupled with the information from a foot scan, a bespoke pair of orthotics are made for you.
Orthotics can help alleviate a variety of symptoms related to foot and lower limb problems, including:
1 Foot pain: Orthotics can help reduce pain in the feet by providing support and cushioning to the feet and redistributing pressure across the foot.
2 Knee pain: Orthotics can help improve the alignment of the feet and legs, which can reduce stress on the knee joint and alleviate knee pain.
3 Hip pain: Orthotics can help improve the alignment of the feet, legs, and pelvis, which can reduce stress on the hip joint and alleviate hip pain.
4 Lower back pain: Orthotics can help improve the alignment of the feet, legs, and spine, which can reduce stress on the lower back and alleviate lower back pain.
5 Plantar fasciitis: Orthotics can help provide support and cushioning to the feet, which can reduce stress on the plantar fascia and alleviate pain associated with this condition.
6 Flat feet: Orthotics can help provide support and improve the alignment of the feet, which can reduce stress on the arches of the feet and alleviate pain associated with flat feet.
7 Overpronation or supination: Orthotics can help correct the gait abnormalities associated with overpronation or supination, which can reduce stress on the feet and lower limbs and alleviate pain.
Orthotics are typically customised to your foot and biomechanics, so they can provide targeted support and improve the function of the feet and lower limbs. They can be particularly helpful when you are experiencing chronic or recurrent pain or discomfort related to foot or lower limb problems. However, it is important to note that orthotics may not be appropriate or effective for all individuals or conditions, and a healthcare professional should be consulted to determine the most appropriate treatment options for you.
Orthotics are placed into your shoe and any excess material is cut out. We advise starting to wear your orthotics for an hour each day, increasing by another hour every few days until you’re wearing them all the time. It is important your body is given the time to get used to a new way of moving!
