|Riverside Orthotics Clinic|
Riverside Orthotics Clinic is located within a long established Sports injury and Rehabilitation clinic. James Cosgrave B.Sc., DC is now in his 20th year of practice and has successfully treated over 10,000 patients of all ages with a wide variety of musculo-skeletal complaints.
As an athlete himself James has long understood the detrimental effect of bad foot mechanics on human performance.
Your feet have a direct impact on the rest of your body. Like the foundations of a house, they support the weight of everything above them. When the foot develops a problem, this causes a subtle change in the way you walk. This in turn will cause a chain reaction of adjustments in your posture and walking mechanics.
These changes can put stress on joints higher up in your body which is why sometimes foot problems present as knee, hip, back or even neck pain!
Prescription orthotics look like shoe insoles but they are actually biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. They are sometimes called 'orthopedic insoles'.
Properly made orthotics are custom moulded to restore normal alignment and balance by gently correcting foot abnormalities.
They fit as comfortably as a shoe insert!
And they have the added advantage of being made from a highly technical foot scan of your actual walking gait which is then sent to the laboratory for gait analysis and manufacure of your prescription orthotic shoes insoles.
