People of all ages can wear orthoses. This includes people suffering from a variety of acute or chronic foot or lower limb conditions. These conditions may cause pain and restrictions in mobility, affecting quality of life and independence. Orthoses can also be worn for those who have biomechanical issues or deformities such as bunions.
Orthoses can provide support, comfort, realignment and reduce further deformity. Sports people or those who are active, who have biomechanical issues that are causing poor foot function can be prescribed orthoses by their Podiatrist to help improve function and maximise their performance.
