Orthotics & Dr Comfort Shoes

What are orthotics?

Orthotics are custom-made orthopaedic devices that fit comfortably inside your shoes. They are made to correct various biomechanical problems in the feet by realigning and stabilising the bones. They allow your feet, legs, hips, pelvis and low back to function more efficiently to reduce strain and pain from many different structures. They restore natural walking and running patterns, and play an extremely important role in the prevention of many problems in the feet, legs and hips.

Who should attend for a postural assessment including testing the biomechanical alignment of the feet, knees and hips:

  • Those suffering from foot, knee, hip or low back pain
  • When you suffer from aching feet after sleep or with walking
  • When you suffer from Heel Spurs, Shin Splints (Compartment Syndrome),Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease, Patellofemoral (Kneecap) Pain, Bunions or Corns, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis,
  • If you play sport and suffer from pain during or after these activities
  • You have a leg length difference or walk with a limp
  • You have knock-knees or bowed legs
  • You walk with “toe-out” or “pigeon toes”
  • The soles of your shoes wear unevenly
