Orthotics, Taping + Supplements
GaitScan - Custom Orthotics
A custom orthotic is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Custom orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes - they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The body of the custom orthotic helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Custom orthotics fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole - and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
At Sorebods we can prescribe custom orthotics to help correct your specific foot and body imbalance
We offer our patients Kinesio-taping when we feel it would be of benefit.
Kinesio-tape (or "Magic Tape" as our patients call it!) is pretty remarkable stuff. It is not like the traditional static tapes of old. It is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. It is Latex-free and wearable for days at a time.
Amazing for reducing swellings and bruises, supporting ligament damage, aiding in joint injury recovery etc. Perfect for sports people as it still allows for movement and is very water resistant.
Safe for young and old and also for use during pregnancy.
We stock a small range of products we have come to know and trust including wheat bags, foam rollers, cramp stop spray and Traumheel creams & tablets. We also proudly stock the BePure range of supplements which we regularly recommend to our patients
