Your feet directly affect the rest of your body. They are the foundation of support, even a subtle change in the way you weight-bear when walking can cause a chain reaction and manifest injuries in the joints and muscles else wear in the body.
Studies indicate that 75% of the population will develop foot problems in their lifetime, it’s not hard to believe when the average person will walk over 100,000 miles during their life or more than four trips around the world!
How does custom-fitted orthotics at Freedom Physiotherapy help?
Custom fitted orthotics at freedom physiotherapy reduces the strain by ensuring correct biomechanical alignment in your feet. They fit into your shoes like insoles providing you with relief from pain and stiffness giving you the freedom to enjoy your daily activities again.

This is why at Freedom Physiotherapy Bentley we use Gait Scan as part of comprehensive gait analysis. This Cutting edge technology will provide critical information to determine if you will benefit from a custom-fitted orthotic.
