ORTHOTICS

Custom made prescription orthotics, bespoke to each patient.

At Faye Pattison Physiotherapy, we believe that the foundations for your alignment and movement lie within your feet. It’s quite simple: if we imagine a building with poor foundations or a car with poor wheel alignment, it’s like a body with poor biomechanics. Poor foundations lead to structural problems in the future, in the same way that poor biomechanics can lead to musculoskeletal problems within your body, which will become apparent through pain in your body. The good news is that this can be easily fixed with custom made orthotics in Essex, bespoke to your feet!

How Do Orthotics Work?

Our custom-made insoles and orthotics are specifically prescribed to your personal feet, height, weight and shoe size. They work by realigning the feet and ankles to restore foot function, distribute weight, alleviate pressure on ‘sore spots’, provide shock absorption, reduce pain and help prevent future problems and injuries.

Faye Pattison Physiotherapy Ltd work with a specialist manufacturing company in the orthotics industry (Foothealth UK) who have over 30 years’ experience in the world of orthotics and are actively involved in the research and development of the industry in the UK, USA and Canada . Our biomechanical therapists have been trained directly by Foothealth’s medical director Kieran Carew who originally trained as a sports injury therapist and went on to study Podiatry. Kieran developed a keen interest in biomechanics during his career and now dedicates himself exclusively to foot biomechanics and orthotics.

While working together with Foothealth over the past years, we now have gone from bioform boxes to cast a foot to the most advance and up to date scanning technology available via Apple using an I-pad Scanner to allow the precision in our scans and manufacturing process for our patients to achieve the incredible success they deserve. With regular biomechanical days held by the lab, we ensure we are kept up to date with the latest research and developments within this very complex industry.

On your initial consultation you will meet with a highly trained biomechanical expert for a complete evaluation of your needs. The review includes a precise assessment of the biomechanics of your feet and checks for underlying structural problems. If required, your biomechanical foot specialist will make the required recommendations for orthotics (if required) and go through the different styles available to fit into the required shoes.

Insoles are now a common and vital component of both sports training and everyday life. Modern shoes aren’t designed with comfort and correct anatomical position in mind, which is why our custom made insoles in Essex are an important accessory if you suffer with aches and pains.

The correct-sized insoles will provide you with much needed pain relief for foot, ankle and leg injuries, and help to correctly align feet into a healthy position when you are standing, running and walking.

FAQs

How much do custom orthotics cost?

Cost is a priority for most people shopping for orthotics, and this may be our most commonly asked question.

Our orthotics are custom made to fit each of our clients: there’s no one size fits all product here! Our orthotics typically cost somewhere between £200 and £500. We won’t be able to give you an accurate figure until we have taken a look at your feet and then discussed your unique needs and requirements. We don’t charge for our initial consultations though – so it will cost nothing to come along and talk through the options that are available to you.

When you first come to us to discuss your orthotics, you’ll receive the warmest of welcomes and be made to feel as comfortable as possible. You’ll then be given a full biomechanical assessment from one of our trained orthotics specialists. They will examine the alignment of your feet, knees, hips – all the way up to your head! This will allow us to identify any problems. We’ll also ask you a few questions, and this is a really good opportunity for you to get more information about our orthotics. This appointment is free of charge, so you have nothing to lose.
