Running orthotics

Running shoes and orthotics work together for your benefit. One does not replace the other.

We will always make sure you wear the right shoes. The orthotics will only reach their full potential when combined with shoes that give you the support and control you require.

The orthotics are personalised to each foot as feet are always asymmetrical, while the shoes (symmetrical) improve the lower limb alignment.

To create orthotics, personalised to your requirements and to address any problems, the consultation will include:

  • A history of past and current running problems.
  • A detailed biomechanical examination of foot structure and lower
  • limb functions.
  • A 3D postural evaluation
  • A computerised gait analysis

Did you know that 80% of the global population pronate

Pronation is the source of most running injuries. By over pronating the foot will de-stabilise your lower limb biomechanics, affecting joint alignment (foot, ankle, knee, hip). This instability will make others muscles and tendons compensate and result in over use. This will happen for a while and allow you to keep going a little longer, until your body cannot take more and starts aching.

The following injuries all have the same origin and can be resolved with orthotic insoles.

  • Shin splints
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Runners knee
  • Ilio tibial band syndrome
  • Plantar fascia
