Do you need insoles for your shoes?

Your feet and the rest of your body are highly interconnected,
Pain in your back, hips or knees could well be linked to whats happening down at your feet. It can be difficult to change someones posture, but a pair of insoles can help.

There are many ‘off the shelf’ insoles out there, but where pain alignment need to be rectified, for us there is no second best than a made to measure orthotic. Our in-house podiatrists can make a pair of insoles up for you in 3-4 weeks.
The process:
1. Call us & we will get our podiatrists to call when next available.
2. The comprehensive assessment: (lifestyle needs, foot posture & Gait analysis). Molds of your feet can then be taken with foam boxes. Molds are then sent off to be made.
3. Once made – a final fitting is done to check they are correct.

Insoles can take 3-6 months to get used to & to wear into your shoes slowly.

Whether you’re an athlete or not, insoles are a worthy investment. Please contact us for more information on:
