Why do foot problems start?

The foot possesses an amazing support mechanism. However, the low arch, pronating foot is simply unable to support itself as this system fails. As force reaches its peak on the ball of the foot the heel lifts, the arch collapses and all supporting muscles and ligaments become susceptible to injury. Our feet support our whole body weight so when things go wrong this can cause problems elsewhere in the body. At the same time, changes in body posture can lead to problems in the feet.

Orthotic insoles can correct pronation problems

Insoles correct foot posture and restore the heel to its natural position and relieve foot pain. At the same time the arch is supported and the foot is in a more stable position. Once the foot is corrected in this way the legs are no longer twisted and the knee, hip and lower back are returned to a normal position. Muscles and joints work more efficiently and painful symptoms are resolved.
