Orthotics are inserts that fit into your existing footwear to improve your overall biomechanics.
For example, it is not uncommon to have dropped inner arches of the feet ('flat feet') in those presenting with back pain, or symptoms presenting in the foot, leg or hip.
An orthotic may be advised if someone undertakes an activity where symptoms often occur, such as running.
Whilst orthotics are usually prescribed as part of an ongoing care plan alongside osteopathy, clients are always welcome to have an individual assessment and prescription without osteopathy.
