Custom insoles

Your Feet are the Foundation of your Body.

Often Pain and Discomfort Stem from Incorrect Alignment of the Feet. 

Custom Insoles May Help

Everyone’s feet are different and often our own feet differ from right to left.
FootBalance’s foot analysis identifies your foot type while FootBalance Custom Insoles are individually
moulded to your unique feet to support them in a neutral position aiding a balanced stance and correct posture.

Over 75% of the population suffers from misalignment such as overpronation or excessive supination. The effects can be felt throughout the body, whether in muscle and joint pain or through more serious injuries.

 

Pain can be caused by problems related to incorrect alignment as well as poorly fitting insoles and shoes which in turn can place your feet in unhealthy positions, impairing foot function, mobility and further negatively affecting overall body alignment.

FootBalance 100% Custom Insoles are individually custom moulded to each foot offering dynamic support to your feet without unhealthy excess rigidity, providing improved comfort and pain relief.

 In just 10 minutes we can carry out your assessment and mould your custom insoles at our Cheltenham Practice.

What Conditions could Footbalance help with?

 

Plantar Fasciitis

custom insoles  Plantar Fasciitis is the irritation and inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of connective tissue running along the bottom of the foot. Pain is usually felt near the heel, but can also be felt in the arch.

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by different factors, including foot arch problems, a tight Achilles tendon, lack of support during prolonged standing, obesity or sudden weight gain.

The key to healing plantar fasciitis is to minimise stress on the plantar fascia ligament so that the body can start to heal the inflammation.

FootBalance Custom Insoles support your feet and arches properly in the neutral position, facilitating healthy foot function. This can help reduce the strain and stress on the plantar fascia, reducing pain and helping the area heal.

 

Shin splints

Shin splints refer to pain and tenderness along or behind the shinbone (tibia) felt along the inside or outside of the shin.

The pain usually develops after physical activity.

 Repetitive stress to the area can lead to inflammation of the muscles, tissue, and periosteum of the tibia, causing pain.

Shin splints can be caused by many factors, including overpronation, flat feet or excessively rigid arches, running or jogging, sudden increases in training volume,

high-impact weight-bearing activities, over training, and/or improper footwear.

Make sure you have the right support underfoot and select the right footwear for your foot type.

FootBalance Custom Insoles support your feet properly in a healthy, neutral position to facilitate healthy foot function and improve overall alignment.

Runner’s knee

Runner’s knee, or IT Band Syndrome, is a sharp pain on the outside of the knee or hip caused by the friction between your iliotibial band and knee or hip.

This friction can be due to different factors, including overpronation, excessive supination, leg length discrepancies, tight hamstrings or IT bands, foot structure and/or muscle imbalances.

Running and stair climbing aggravate the pain, while sitting for long periods of time may lead to stiffness and soreness in the knee.

Select the right running shoes for your foot type and be sure to replace them regularly.

FootBalance Custom Insoles can help offer relief from Runner’s knee by properly supporting your feet in a healthy, neutral position to improve overall leg alignment and foot func

tion. Different levels of custom insole cushioning can be selected to help further reduce impact.
