Those “things in your shoes” aka orthotics
Most of my patients, at some time or another, probably end up in my gait analysis room. I find taking a video of someone and showing it to them really helps them understand what I’m on about! BUT as soon as I mention the idea of orthotics aka “putting something in their shoes” many people run for hills. So it’s always lovely to hear from people who took the leap of faith that I might not be trying to kill them.
“I would like you to know how pleased I am with the results of your supply and fitting of orthotic insoles.
Over the years, on one of my feet, the toes had become crushed together so much so that one toe had been forced upwards and was resting on my big toe.
Two years ago, in 2012, I visited your clinic where my gait was assessed for the fitting of the appropriate insoles. Over this period, my toes are now almost back to their normal position. It was interesting to observe the comparison computer graphs clearly showing the improvement gained since fitting the insoles.
I am now happy to re-order a further 2 pairs so that hopefully I can continue to maintain this excellent improvement.”
