Who Needs Foot Orthotics
Foot orthotics can assist with many different conditions, from skin conditions like calluses to foot pain like plantar fasciitis. Many people can benefit from the use of clinical foot orthotics if they have:
- Pronated foot (the foot rolling inwards)
- Supinated foot (foot rolling outwards)
- Foot structures like high arch or flat foot
- Callus or corn
- Arthritis caused by poor foot alignment
- Foot deformity like bunion
- Injuries from sports or exercise
People with the above conditions will also need the right type of shoes for their condition. It is best to be assessed by a Podiatrist before buying shoes or foot orthotics for your lower limb problem to ensure you have the best support for your condition.
