Orthotics //

Hurst Podiatry has a particular interest in paediatric and sports podiatry and has a long history and knowledge of several sports. We believes that children, particularly those who participate in sport, should be assessed for the potential need of orthotics. Early intervention and management of these conditions can often prevent long term problems.


Foot orthoses are shoe inserts specifically designed to support, align or improve the function of the foot.  People of all ages and with a variety of foot problems can benefit from wearing orthotics where appropriate. Orthotics can be fitted into a shoe to reposition the foot and improve the foot's postural alignment. Conditions often treated with this therapy are heel spurs, shin splints, Achilles pain, flat feet, plantar fasciitis, ankle pain and knee pain.
 

 

The sample photos below show a before and after view of the foot’s position with and without orthotics. The most obvious difference can be seen in these pictures by looking at the ankle position.
