Some foot, knee and back problems can be greatly helped with the appropriate fitting of an insole and adaptation of footwear. An orthotic is a device which repositions the foot structures and so reduces the stress  and associated symptoms. A detailed lower limb assessment is  necessary in order to identify the main problem and this information leads to the fitting of an orthotic “tailor” made  for the patients foot. Mary believes in the fitting of a temporary  cheap insole in order to ascertain its effect on the problem before embarking on any further  treatment. Prices of orthotics can vary. Temporary insoles can be as little as €10!
