Conditions We Treat

Foot Problems We Can Treat

Conditions of the foot that we can treat using orthotic therapy include:

  • Overpronation
    Your ankles roll in causing you arch to drop low
  • Flat Feet
    Same as above and in most cases where people believe they have flat feet it is not the case as it's their ankles rolling in the cause the 'impression' of flat feet.
  • Supination
    The opposite of pronation/flat feet where your ankles are 'tilted' outwards giving you a high arch and ankle instability.
  • Pes Cavus
    This is the medical term for a high arch foot and usuallt is accompanied by high pressure under the big toe joint of the bll of the foot and sometimes similar on the little toe joint too.
