At Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic, part of your assessment for back or lower limb pain is to observe the feet in standing and walking – think of them as “the foundations of the house”. If we identify that abnormal biomechanics may be contributing to your pain, a temporary insole or custom-made orthotic may be suggested.
Orthotics are particularly effective for;
- Metatarsalgia (Pain in the ball of the foot)
- Tired/ Aching feet and legs
- Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
- Anterior knee pain
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Tibial Stress Syndrome (Shin Splints)
- Pes Planus (Flat feet)
- Lumbar-Sacral Pain
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Osteoarthritis of the ankle, knee and hip
Children and young adults will often require a temporary orthotic to ease pain and correct abnormal alignment if in the growing phase there has been a growth spurt and muscle flexibility has become an issue. Personalised stretching programmes and the orthotic will balance and resolve such issues.
Orthotics can be provided to all ages from the competitive athlete, the casual exercise enthusiast to the elderly where walking and even standing has become a problem.
Our physiotherapists have post-graduate experience in assessment for orthotics and will advise you on the best device for your needs, depending on your symptoms, regular activities and finances!

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.
I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!
Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.
Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
