Prescription orthotics are medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. They exert gentle consistent pressure to bring muscles and bones back into proper alignment. They fit neatly and comfortably into your shoes and are made from flexible moulded thermoplastic.
They correct biomechanical abnormalities of the feet and are used in the treatment of fallen arches/flat feet, plantar fascitis, heel spurs, bunions, hammer toes, shin splints, foot/leg/back/knee/ankle and hip pain. Find out more about the conditions that can benefit from custom orthotics.
Cork’s Advanced Orthotic Clinic utilises a Gait Scan method of assessing incorrect foot function. This revolutionary diagnostic tool is the most technologically advanced gait analysis system available. It has been designed to help us to recognise and treat faulty foot function during gait (walking, jogging or running). Find out more about how Custom Orthotics work.
