Orthotics and arch supports are regularly recommended by physiotherapists, podiatrists and orthotists for the relief of foot pain, heel pain, shin pain, knee pain and back pain. Often, a biomechanical mal-alignment or lack of stability from the foot region can cause abnormal loads on the tissues of the foot and heel, shin, knee or back pain can develop as a result.
Correcting these problems using orthotics and arch supports is an important part of the injury treatment.
Footmedics and Spenco are high quality orthotics and arch supports available from PhysioRoom.com. footmedics ¾ Length Foot Orthotics and Spenco ¾ Length Orthotic Arch Supports are ¾ length arch supporting, anti pronation orthotics. The ¾ length makes them ideal for fitting into narrow fitting footwear, such as football boots. By providing support for fallen arches or pronated feet they prevent over pronation during walking and running. This improves foot stability and controls rotation of the shin. The simple fitting of orthotics and arch supports creates normal lower limb posture and prevents excessive loads that lead to injury.
