There are several reasons why you may have been issued a pair of Footbionics. Many foot or lower limb injuries respond quickly to orthotic therapy. Orthotic devices are usually dispensed as a treatment for pain or discomfort that you may have been suffering. Orthoses are also used to correct posture or abnormal foot position as a preventative measure. This is based upon the theory that an abnormal foot position will more likely lead to pain or injury.
Excessive foot pronation is considered to increase tissue stress, and therefore controlling this movement is often what your podiatrist will focus upon.
Whilst an orthotic device is usually used to control this motion they are often used to simply support the bony structure of your foot. By supporting the foot, tissue stress can be reduced and pain relieved. However there are several recognised ways in which you may benefit from using orthotic devices.
