“Without the help of the Podiatrist who made my customised insoles I would not have recovered from the shin pain that had prevented me from running”

podiatry-gaitThe Podiatrist is an extremely integral part of the team. Poor foot function is a major source of many painful conditions. If you have pain in areas such as the feet, ankle, shins, knees, hips and indeed the lower back, the chances are that part of the cause could be related to the way your feet strike the ground when
you stand, walk, or run.

Few of us have ‘normal’ foot-types and our podiatrist will be able to identify these abnormal patterns and help correct the problem by prescribing a range of custom made and preformed insoles (ORTHOTICS). There are many varieties of insoles on Belfast’s highstreet shelves. It is vital to have the correct insole for your particular foot type and injury.
