What is it?
Orthotics is the branch of medicine that deals with the provision of artificial devices such as splints, braces, and insoles.
They are used to correct or treat injuries and other problems within muscles, joints, and bones.
At Active Life Podiatry we use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment for gait analysis, and biomechanical assessment. We design and produce tailor-made orthosis or orthoses (such as insoles or shoe inserts) on site at our Fulham clinic to support the foot, realign the feet, and correct gait problems or imbalance, as well as other walking or running pattern issues.
Who is it for?
We have successfully treated many patients who previously suffered from conditions such as plantar fasciitis and heel pain, neuromas, pain associated with bunions, leg pain, and runner’s knee.
- Improved stability
- Improved mobility
- Reduced pain
- Improved alignment of joints
- Control of joint motion
Mark Barton, our Biomechanics Specialist, has extended scope experience in injection therapy, orthoses prescription, foot mobilisation techniques & acupuncture.
#TakeSteps to look after your feet
Walking the dog, taking the kids to school, running a marathon, or even running for a bus, we take thousands of steps in a day. In fact, we walk nearly 75,000 miles in a lifetime. Our feet bear the weight of our steps and keep us moving every day.
