The Benefits of Using Orthotics.

Foot orthotics are designed to help relieve pain and discomfort caused by conditions of the foot and imbalances in the lower limbs. They can be fitted to alter the angles at which the foot strikes a surface and to give greater support to the foot.

Improper alignment of the foot can cause leaning whilst walking or standing. Orthotics such as Prostep Full Length Orthotic help to correct gait and improve balance, allowing the wearer to stay on their feet for longer periods and continue enjoying activities such as walking and running. They also work to prevent further damage to the foot (bunions, corns and heel spurs) and work to improve body posture.

Orthotics can be worn after trauma or injury. They provide support and stability, and help take the strain off the injured area, allowing for an easier recovery. They help to relieve pain caused by injury, muscle strain and spasms

Orthotics are regularly worn by sports enthusiasts, including some of the top professional premiership players and Olympic athletes. People who participate in sports place considerable stress on their feet, which can result in various injuries to both the feet and lower limbs. Wearing orthotics can improve agility and increase performance, by correcting alignment, improving motion control and enhancing shock absorption. They can reduce the friction to the metatarsal and heel, helping an athlete’s foot stay in better condition. Some people choose to use orthotics as preventative measures, and they are used widely by sports players to help protect the feet and lower limbs in contact sports, such as football.

They can also be beneficial in relieving the symptoms of foot problems associated with medical conditions such as cerebral palsy, obesity, stroke, diabetes and arthritis.

Orthotics can be used to treat and aid a variety of individual needs, and can be useful to those with existing health conditions, and to reduce pressure on the healthy foot during sports.
