1. What are Orthotics / Foot Supports?
Orthotics / foot supports are specially designed shoe inserts, which help to restore the natural position of your foot. The type of orthotic we need depends on the type of foot we have, how the foot is changing position and what shoes we wear.
By careful selection and design of the correct orthotic the foot is able to return to its natural position and function. This will prevent damaging changes in other joints, muscles and ligaments, and reduce foot pain.
2. Is an Orthotics / Foot Supports just another insole?
No, because insoles are designed to provide a cushioning effect and shock absorption. They may feel comfortable at first but they do not get to the root of the biomechanical cause of the pain or ailment. Orthotics, on the other hand, are designed to change and optimise your foot function and relieve foot pain.
3. Do I need Orthotics / Foot Supports?
Many foot symptoms ranging from general aches to painful bone and foot problems such as heel pain, bunions, callouses and hammer toes, are caused by collapsed and fallen arches. Foot orthotics (foot supports) help realign the joints within the foot in order to relieve the various symptoms of foot pain.
Orthotics / Foot Supports may also be used as an alternative to surgery, or after surgery to help maintain proper foot, ankle, knee and hip alignment.
4. What kinds of Orthotics / Foot Supports are available?
Various kinds of Orthotics / Foot Supports are available depending upon your needs of your lifestyle and your feet. The most common type of orthotic insole is the rigid orthopaedic foot support device made for everyday shoes.
There are other types of Orthotics / Foot Supports for high heeled shoes and soft, more flexible specialized Orthotics / Foot Supports to support pressure areas like the heel spur and to relieve foot pain.
5. Will Orthotics / Foot Supports help my foot problems?
Orthotics / Foot Supports are helpful for many ailments of the foot; however they are not a complete cure. Orthotic devices cannot reverse damage already occurred; they can however reduce the severity of the symptoms and relieve much of the pain caused by the problems you experience. In some cases symptoms can be eliminated.
6. Do I wear Orthotics / Foot Supports all day?
Orthotics / Foot Supports, like glasses, work only when you use them. Orthotics / insoles (foot supports) do not change the structure of a foot, but help realign its joints to improve posture and function and relieve foot pain.
All day use of your Orthotics / Foot Supports is generally recommended to control or reduce pain or fatigue.

TYPES OF ORTHOTICS INCLUDE:
Rigid orthotics are used to control motion in two major foot joints that lie directly below the ankle. They are often used to prevent excessive pronation (the turning in of the foot) and are useful for people who are very overweight or have uneven leg lengths.
Soft orthotics are designed to absorb shock, improve balance, and remove pressure from painful areas. They are made from lightweight material and are often beneficial for people with diabetes or arthritis.
