Conditions Diagram

Several conditions in the lower limb can be related to biomechanical dysfunction (i.e. poor posture of the foot and leg) and can be treated effectively through the use of orthoses (prescription insoles). By treating the causes of these conditions symptoms will resolve quicker, will be less likely to re-occur and you will be able to return to normal activities including sports.
