As osteopaths, prescribing foot arch supports for fallen or high arches to support to your feet, hips and spine is something we can help you with at BODYBACK-UP.
Many people develop painful bad habits walking or running, whether as the result of an injury, postural issues, or simply deep stiffness in the foot and calf. Orthotics are insole inserts placed in your walking shoes, trainers or work boots to help distribute weight more evenly across your foot, and give a correct postural foundation to the rest of your body.
We supply low-cost (from only £25) orthotics and also work with registered podiatrists when there are foot health issues or you need bespoke orthotics.
We ask you to bring your current footwear to your appointment. We also offer diagnostic appointments via online video consultations, ideal for orthotics assessments and offering a quick and easy way to obtain a professional diagnosis.
First we assess you body and posture as a whole, taking into account your stance, walking gait and the alignment of your spine. Please bring current shoes and orthotics with you.
Next we ask you to perform a few physical tests, such as squats and lunges. This is so the osteopath can analyse your positioning and posture during movement.
If you already use orthotics, your osteopath will let you know whether they need updating. If you are new to orthotics, they will advise you in the right size and type of orthotic for you.
Our osteopath will also prescribe exercises for you to carry out at home, to improve how your body works together, as a whole unit from the ground up!

Back Pain Playing Golf
Treating the root cause rather than the symptom
I have visited Robin Lansman and his team for several years after suffering since my late teens with lower back problems. Robin quickly pointed out other areas that could bring on the problems and in actual fact, all the other treatments I had gone through in the past were treating the symptoms rather than the root cause. With a bit of work, and following the exercises, I have reduced my pain to minimal levels, know when things are getting out of balance again and, importantly, know how I can help myself to stop the pain from spiralling out of control.
I cannot recommend Body Back-Up highly enough and have sent several members of my family to Robin so that they can also benefit from his expertise and knowledge.
Robin Lansman was recommended to me by a skiing friend of mine who was watching me struggling with a Locked Back in Klosters. I had been to a sports doctor who, fancy on paper, prodded me, but didn’t actually tell me what to do.
Anyway, I pitched up at Maida Vale and 6 sessions later I am a lot better and my next skiing session was in a different league. Highly recommended!
I emailed Robin Lansman digital photographs of my desk at work and he has tweaked how I sit. Also my bike, which was rejected out of hand as being totally unsuitable such a good idea. As a result my back is miles better.
Body Backup really are very helpful and are highly recommended they will sort you out.
Sports Injury Care
Thank you so much for all your advice and the work you did on my knee and back before the Rome half marathon on Sunday. I completed the race without stopping to walk in 1:54:57, a time I would have been aiming for if I had not been injured, and had the month before the race to train! I really think you helped me achieve this and I am thrilled. Thank you so much.
Spinal Damage – Slipped Vertebrae
Had a long journey so far, with an injury from 2004. Spinal damage – slipped vertebrae (spondy) and torn hip ligament. Had an operation (after 3 years of chiropractic, physio and personal trainer), screws and spacer for my spine. My recovery has been progressing slowly since 2007, but grew frustrated more recently that I still cannot sit, stand or walk comfortably, let alone run.
After 3 sessions with Robin, and maintaining a regular daily schedule of the simple but effective exercises he gave me, my hip pain has greatly reduced, and I am now able to sit, stand, walk and even run comfortably.
I cannot believe the difference these three sessions have made to my mobility and comfort levels. I have known for some time that I needed to retrain muscles to support correct joint movement, but hadn’t found anyone who could help me to achieve this efficiently. Until now. So Happy.
Long Term Back Pain Resolved
I have suffered with back pain for 20 years and seen Consultants, Physio’s & Doctors and none of the advice or treatments helped. Pain relief worked but only to mask the underlying issue. I have probably spent “Thousand of pounds” on medication, private appointments, orthopaedic devices and time off work. AFTER just ONE £45 session my back felt like a “million dollars”. PROPER advice and diagnosis has helped along with my own research. I was not “Power Sold” further treatments, but will be making another appointment next month.
Treatment is a two way responsibility and I am so glad I had finally found a healthcare professional in Karen Phillips, who understood and diagnosed me immediately. Am still waiting for the good effects to wear off! Great nights sleep, drive into work good. Posture issue also identified. The rest is up to me now to maintain and exercise. MANY MANY THANKS I now no longer live in pain or FEAR of back spasm’s.
I was recommended to come to Body Back-Up by my GP. The difference it has made in my life has been tremendous! I have had about six treatments now and whereas I could barely get in or out of the car or stand for any great length of time I now find that my life has changed and I have my fitness back. I have got my life back and my mobility is just so much better now that it was when I first came here to see Robin Lansman. I have got my life back and am able to do all the things I couldn’t do before and in fact have probably never been able to. Thank you!
