Why do we need Orthotics? The human foot was originally designed to travel on soft, natural surfaces like earth and sand. Unfortunately, instead of soft earth we now spend every day walking and standing on unnatural hard, flat surfaces like pavements and floors.
These surfaces force our feet to roll inwards to gain ground contact and our arches to flatten. Rolling inwards of the foot or “Excess Pronation” is believed to affect over 50% of the population.
Just like tyres on a car, poor alignment of the feet can cause wear and tear to other parts of the body. Excess Pronation often disrupts normal knee function and hip alignment and increases forces on the muscles in the lower back. Subsequently, Excess Pronation can cause a wide range of common complaints.
The answer is to treat the cause of these complaints not just the symptoms. In other words, by restoring the lower limb’s natural angle we can align the feet and body posture to their neutral position and take away the cause of these problems.
