Orthotics (orthoses) are supportive and flexible inserts placed inside your shoes, which aim to alter your foot and ankle’s movement pattern.
They are prescribed when a particular problem exists with either the bones or soft tissue structures such as tendons, ligaments or fascia. These problems can arise in the foot, ankle or lower leg. Such problems are often termed, musculoskeletal pathology.
Orthotics aim to positively influence these structures by altering the forces placed on the foot and ankle, reducing stress and strain.
