Custom Orthotics & Foot Pain
At our clinic, we have partnered with some of the best custom made orthotic and arch support manufacturers in Ireland and the U.K.
Foot Orthotics are devised to correct malfunction in the feet.
Custom-made corrective orthotics are used in the treatment and prevention of numerous foot problems and associated ailments that can affect the foot, ankle, knee, hip and back.
We offer a wide range of orthotic styles custom-made for each individual depending on preferred foot-wear, activities and various other specifications.
We use the most advanced in 3D laser scanning technology which is the most accurate method of measuring for orthotic devices. These scanners are an extremely precise device measuring thousands of different points of the contours of the foot.
Foot pain is a very common issue affecting many people. Some of the most commonly seen causes of foot pain are heel or arch pain, plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendinitis, bunions, metatarsalgia, muscle and tendon strain, ligament sprains and arthritic changes in the joints.
Osteopaths are experts at diagnosing and treating many of these complaints as well as finding the underlying reason that has caused the pain to occur.
If the underlying issue is due to the position of the arches or function of the foot, then this is where custom made arch supports can be very beneficial.
As the feet are the base or foundation for your whole body, any imbalances in the foot function can cause compensations throughout the whole leg and into the pelvis and spine. Very often, the feet can be the underlying cause for many issues in the knees, hips, sacro-iliac joints and/or lower back
