What are Orthotics?

People often suffer foot pain at some time in their lives, frequently along with sore legs, knees and back pain. These are often caused by poor mechanical alignment affecting the way you run, walk and stand. When appropriately prescribed, orthotics can reduce foot pain. Foot orthotics allow the muscles, tendons ligaments and bones of the feet to function at their highest potential. Orthotics are shaped with special features to support the natural shape of your feet, as well as increase stability and cushioning. Orthotics that are ‘made to measure’ can cost between £200- £300 a pair! Some are ‘Neutral cast’, others made using a ‘Gel mould process’. We offer a semi-bespoke service – matching your foot arch needs for each foot separately and testing how you perform whilst wearing the footwear you use for Home, Work or Sports.

Ideal for Hospital Staff – Hairdressers – Builders – Factory Workers – Commuters

Testimonial – Orthotic Insoles

I have been coming to see Robin for a year now, having been in absolute agony, and not being able to run for about 3 months.

Within 3 months I was running again and he recommended some insoles to put in my trainers and I have always got through a pair of trainers every 6 months at £120 for a pair of trainers is rather expensive and since I have had these insoles – which I put them in January in a new pair of trainers and I haven’t had to replace them thus far and I don’t think I will be for at least a few months.

The insoles have been absolutely amazing – I have gone 9 months without any back pain whatsoever, so I would recommend them highly.

Testimonial – Orthotic Insoles

I visited your clinic in 2001 and had some very successful treatment on a back problem caused mostly by fallen arches.  You sold me some insoles (skiing) for £30 ish which I thought were expensive at the time but you said they would outlast my shoes.  Yeah, right I thought.

11 years later they have just about worn through!  That’s with daily use!  Outlasting several pairs of shoes and trainers.

So, I am back for more!  Just about to buy a pair for myself and for my 11 year old son (who wasn’t even born when I bought my first insoles!)

Hows that?

Seriously – many thanks for what you did at the time.  I have not had many re-occurrences of the problem since and those that I do have are caused by me not following your stretching exercises properly.

My very best regards
