Foot podiatry biomechanics involves stopping the feet rolling in or out using
bespoke foot orthotics. Bespoke orthotics correct body alignment
and improve shock absorption. The orthotics are manufactured in house and the very best materials available are used.
North London orthotics are used in the treatment of many body problems
such as, foot problems like, in rolling feet, (pronation) which are connected with other pain symptoms like, ankle injuries, knee pains,
hip conditions and back pains.
In assessment both feet are checked in a Podiatrists Biomechancial Assessment in both standing, sitting
and non weight bearing positions. Alignment is measured and how pressure is transferred into
the feet, and through to the ankles, knees, hips and back.
The foot orthotics we make are made from scanning or taking plaster
mold's of each foot to capture the exact shape and the fit and is therefore
accurate ensuring correct angle and maximum shock absorption.
