Many people suffer from lower limb and back pain – but it is not widely known that these problems are often caused by the way that we walk. In many cases back and leg pain can be alleviated by the use orthotic insoles, which are placed inside the shoe.
At Advance Podiatry we create custom-made orthotics for our patients, which are personalised to their feet. These are often made with specific activities in mind – for example running, golf, walking and even skiing.
We use specialised software to analyse their walk and produce a detailed gait analysis like the one shown below. This information is used to create the bespoke insoles which distribute pressure when walking and alleviate pain.
