A+ Sports Therapy is now collaborating with Formthotics UK to deliver a fantastic product to our patients. Formthotics™ is a total contact custom medical orthotic, which is achieved by thermoforming (heat-moulding) the devices and fitting them to the patient’s feet. They are made from Formax™ which is a high-grade thermoformable polyolefin foam. This has a greater mouldability than other foams and holds a moulded shape longer, better and more accurately than other orthotic devices.
As a total contact foot orthotic, Formthotics™ provides the best possible foot control and comfort. Formthotics™ insole solutions have been in use for the last 30 years and have provided professionals with an immediate solution to foot, ankle and lower limb biomechanical problems.
Which conditions can Formthotics™ benefit?
- Achilles Tenonitis/Tendinopathy
- Bursitis of the Hip and Knee
- Knee Pain/Patella Pain
- Lower Back Pain (where there is a biomechanical issue)
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Runners Knee
- Shin Splints
Among other conditions (as the above list is not exhaustive), can all benefit from the use of these excellent custom medical orthotics.
Formthotics™ can be fitted into almost any type of footwear from ski boots to work shoes, from welly boots to trainers. We apply a combination of tests to understand just how your legs move and your feet distort when walking and running. As it is essential that we fit the correctly shaped orthotic with the appropriate firmness and width for your required/desired activity.
Formthotics™ have been proven to be effective in reducing pain, treating and preventing injuries and improving patient comfort. In many cases they have been found to be as good, and in some cases better, than custom casted orthotics in the treatment of lower extremity dysfunction.
What to expect from your visit to the clinic.
Step 1 – Consultation
Our therapists will examine your lower limbs and complete some assessments. If we feel that an orthotic will help, we will prescribe the correct Formthotics™ for you, your shoe and your sport/activity.
Step 2 – Fitting your Formthotics™
After selecting the correct Formthotic for you, our therapists will shape and gently mould them to the contours of your feet and your shoes using the Formthotic heating system.
In the majority of cases, you will not have to wait long as the fitting can be completed within the consultation, so that you can go away with your personal Formthotics™ and instantly begin to feel the benefits.
Step 3 – A FREE 30-minute follow up Consultation
It is a good idea to ensure that your Formthotics™ are assisting you fully in the manner that they should, as in some cases it may be necessary to adapt your custom medical orthotics. Therefore, this FREE follow up consultation will allow us to address any possible problems and perform any adaptations that maybe required.
You can book in for a FREE standalone 30-minute follow up consultation online, or conversely If you book any one of our 90-minute treatments to counteract any minor niggles that could be present from your lower limb realignment, we will carry out the relevant assessments and required adaptations and only charge you a 60-minute treatment fee.
