Podiatry Insoles

What are bespoke insoles/orthotics?

Custom made orthotics or bespoke insoles are specialist devices inserted into your trainers or shoes. They are designed specifically for you to correct an abnormal alignment or any other issues with your feet which may be causing you problems in the foot, ankle, knee, hip or even the back.

Getting the correct orthotic is so important. You walk on your feet every day and that is why the insoles we provide are prescribed to you by our highly trained and experienced podiatrists.

We work with the top orthotic labs in the country and have a variety of different devices at varying price points including casted and non-casted devices. We can use whatever insole material we think would best suit your feet and lifestyle and know just how much of a significant difference the right orthotic can make!

What are the benefits of insoles/orthotics?

The type of insole you require will depend on your specific problem and you will have a thorough podiatry assessment to decide what the most appropriate insole is to suit your needs.

The right orthotics can:

  • Promotes normal alignment and supports the foot arch
  • Reduces pain and inflammation
  • Maintains the integrity of the ligaments, tendons and muscles of the foot
  • Improves walking/running efficiency
  • Improves gait pattern and biomechanics
  • Reduce risk of sprains and other ankle injuries
  • Speeds up return to sport
  • Optimises performance
  • Reduce the load on osteoarthritic joints ie. OA knee

What conditions may benefit from insoles/orthotics?

Insoles can be used for a number of conditions and each one has to be individually prescribed to ensure that it is carrying out the correct job. The podiatrists at Physio.co.uk have a vast knowledge of multiple conditions and will advise you on the most appropriate insole. Some of the conditions that may be treated using an insole include:

  • Achilles tendonopathy/tendonitis
  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Hammer toes / Mallet toes
  • Metatarsalgia (pain around the ball of the foot)
