Running Orthotics

As a runner you will know that injury can lead to a very frustrating time particularly if an injury keeps returning. Running places demands on the feet, ankles and knees for all athletes. Ensuring that the body is working efficiently has been a concern for elite runners for some time. Over the past two decades most runners have become aware of the role that the right shoes play in preventing injury.

Our running orthotics take this a step further as they are custom made to fit the unique shape of your feet. They can be used for the rehabilitation or prevention of injury. Before our running orthotics are made for you, you will have a biomechanical assessment, video gait analysis and pressure plate analysis so that our Podiatrists will have the complete picture of what happens when you run.

Most runners know what pronation is. Pronation is a normal motion that occurs and is needed to adapt to the terrain underneath you. Excessive pronation can lead to injuries at the knee, shins, ankles and feet.

Common conditions where orthotics may be beneficial include:

  1. Corns and Blisters - Our running orthotics reduce friction and remove pressure.
  2. Metatargalsia
  3. Plantar Facitis
  4. Heel Pain
  5. Achillies Tendonitis
  6. Shin Splints
  7. Knee Pain
