What are Orthotics?
Orthotics or foot orthoses, are custom made shoe insoles that support your feet while aligning your feet with your body. They reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet. TOG orthotics are not “off-the-shelf” insoles. They are made from exact moving 3-D images of your feet. It is a specific prescription, therefore offering the best possible support and relief from symptoms. Custom made orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes. You wouldn’t wear someone else’s glasses, so why would you put something under your feet that has not been designed specifically for you!
Orthotics help reduce pain throughout the feet, legs, knees, hips and back and can dramatically help to improve and maintain a healthy posture.
Unlike most insoles made from polypropylene, which has a short life span and flattens under constant stress, TOG orthotics are made from a unique memory plastic which is guaranteed for life against breakage and will never flatten.
A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. That adds up to about 115,000 miles in a lifetime or more than four times around the world. That is a lot of walking with ill-fitting shoes or painful feet!
Who needs orthotics?
Anyone suffering from the following symptoms may need orthotics:
- Localised foot problems, including bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis, heel pain, arch pain, corns/calluses, Achilles Tendonitis or tired/aching feet
- Knee Pain, including Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome, Patellar Tendonitis, Osteoarthritis of the knees (wear and tear) or meniscus problems
