Sports orthotics are a simple corrective measure to influence your gait, maximise your performance and minimise pain.
How can orthotics help when practising sports?
Orthotics for sports are highly sought after because they remove the barriers to high performance. Whether you’re dealing with bunions, high arches or shin splints, they reduce muscle fatigue, optimise energy transfer and improve balance and stability.
Sports orthotics reduce the impact on your feet, providing better shock absorption and minimising pressure on your ankles and knees.
Custom orthotics help you push yourself further every time, and because they are custom-designed for your feet, they’ll be fine-tuned to your unique requirements.
The type of orthotics you need will depend on your sport of choice, with basketball players more likely to want shock-absorption qualities and cyclists commonly looking for better metatarsal padding.
However, regardless of your chosen sport, there are some key advantages to opting for custom sports orthotics:
- Optimal support for your specific needs
- Avoid overcompensation and further injury
- Maximise performance through biomechanical analysis

How we will assess your needs
At The Foot Hub, we use a biomechanical assessment of your foot structure and gait to create a custom orthotics solution for you.
For the best orthotic treatment, we offer a full assessment to analyse your foot structure and strength while sitting, standing and in gait. Next, we’ll advise you on your current footwear and suggest some areas for improvement.
The Foot Hub has a range of sports orthotics options for our patients. From traditional custom made orthotics made from polypropelene to our PODIATECH sports specific orthotics from SIDAS Medical.
