FAQs

What are Custom Orthotics?

Custom Orthotics are foot supports that are specifically designed for your foot type. They are typically placed inside your shoe, or other footwear of your choice and with modern technology improving in the 3D Printing space, special shoes with insoles can also be designed. These foot supports – better known as insoles, aim to ensure your comfort, and increase your stability making a long-term difference to your gait and musculoskeletal movements.

What are the benefits of Custom Insoles?

Custom insoles are often used to manage foot, or heel pains that have arisen from some biomechanical faults and lower limb injuries like: Bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, an irritated nerve. The most common use is to treat the Flat Foot Syndrome – for those with flattened arches of the feet.

More commonly, diabetics may need custom orthotics, and can take great benefit from having them, as having poor circulation to the feet may cause easy ulceration in the feet, making it difficult for them to move around. They are also extremely beneficial for ankle injuries and to prevent future pain in ankles.

Are they good for athletes and sportspersons?

Insoles can be very helpful to high-performance athletes. Those who have had a recent injury and are going back into their sport require insoles to prevent further damage which in-turn helps to maintain the body balance and weight ratio. A major aim of using such insoles is to assist and also to prevent the injury or fault from reoccurring by reducing the stress that caused it in the first place. Insoles can boost the performance of athletes by giving them stability in the field.

How does the process work?

Like all our streamlined processes – the focus is your speedy recovery. The two-step process will include the following procedures:

  • Our skilled and trained Therapists (Physiotherapist/Chiropractor/Podiatrist) will proceed with an examination that will assess the range of motion of your feet and adjacent joints, muscle strength and length, gait evaluation and a postural analysis while you are weight-bearing as well as non-weight bearing.
  • Following the examination and assessment, an imprint of the foot will be taken, either in a mold or digitally via 3D Imprints. This will allow us to design a Custom Orthotic that easily fits the footwear of your choice that you use regularly. This orthotic will be custom made to support your body balance, weight distribution and foot condition. A supportive insole is critical to all articulations of your feet, and will help to reduce pain, prevent hypermobility, and most importantly it will fit your unique foot without any discomfort.

Once these processes are done it’s time for you to step into your newfound feet with better mobility and reduced pain – because at Alleviate Physiotherapy, our primary aim is to Alleviate your Quality of Life.
