Rebecca

Orthotist

Rebecca approaches orthotics with a holistic approach to ensure you receive the best treatment tailored to you. With a background in both Sports Therapy BSc (Hons) and Prosthetics and Orthotics BSc (Hons) she has a wide knowledge on biomechanics and the effects this can have on the body. With her main focus at the clinic being insole provision. 

Why would an individual need an insole?

The foot and ankle complex is made up of one quarter of the bones in your body. The role of the foot and ankle is hugely important to stabilise and propel your body forward with each step. An injury or misalignment within the foot and ankle can lead to problems further up the kinetic chain causing pain in the knees, hips and back which often leads to a misdiagnosis of a condition further up. Often we need to start at the biomechanics of the foot to allow rehabilitation to be effective. 

What types of conditions may need an insole? 

There are many conditions that can be improved with the use of an insole whether that be to improve pain, balance or prevent the formation of calluses and ulcers;
- Diabetics
- Arthritis 
- Osteoarthritis 
- Hyper mobility
- Toe walkers 
- Plantar facitis 
- Posterior tibialialis tendon dysfunction 
- Charcot Marie tooth
- Leg length discrepancies 
And many more conditions.

What happens in an orthotics consultation?

Rebecca will carry out a full biomechanical assessment analysing your range of movement and gait to determine whether you are suitable for orthotic intervention and what type of insole would suit your needs best. If custom is deemed best it is at this point an impression will be taken.
