Many lower-back, hip and knee pains originate in the feet. Misaligned joints and joints which malfunction causes bad posture forcing the body to compensate thereby creating stress in other areas.
Biomechanical assessments are a means of examining the feet and their range of motion, and establishing exactly where the problem occurs.
To correct any areas of malfunction and to stop the body from over compensating, a pair of orthotics are used. Orthotics are prescription in-soles which are made specifically for an individual taking into account individual requirements. They control the joints and range of motion by supporting the foot in its correct position and realigning posture, they can certainly help in reducing pain.
