Do you need help working out of this is a local or referred problem and could a Foot Orthotic be the answer to continuous pain in your pain and affecting your mobility

Orthotics

Treatments typically include a combination of advice, exercises, stretches, and/or orthotics. An orthotic is a device rather like an insole that is worn inside the shoe and changes the way the foot works. In doing so, can influence your posture. Orthotics can be made for specific purposes, such as sports, or for general wear, or a combination of both. They can be made for occupational footwear or for leisure and can even be made for shoes with heels. You can discuss your requirements, choices and preferences to get the best possible orthotics for your specific problems or needs. Orthotics may also help to avoid problems encountered through ‘wear and tear’ such as arthritis and can slow the development of problems related to abnormal mechanics, such as bunions.
