I would recommend Stride Orthotics to anybody. Mhairi identified the cause of my pain when everybody else failed. After years of suffering with a recurrent injury I now live pain free. Thank you, Helen M. ”

Neuromuscular Condition

Neuromuscular Conditions
An orthotics company operating in Glasgow & Edinburgh since 2009

The neuromuscular system is how movements are coordinated via the cooperation of the nervous system.

Symptoms and Conditions:

There are many types of neuromuscular conditions. Symptoms include:

  • Changes within the muscles, such as wastage, weakness, pain, cramping, spasticity or paralysis
  • Loss of coordination and balance

Examples of neuromuscular conditions::

  • Stroke
  • Post Polio
  • Spina Biffida
  • Cerbral Palsay
  • Mutiple Sclerosis
  • Motor Neurone Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Charot Marie Tooth

Orthotics for treating Neuromuscular Conditions
Leg supports are essential to hold the foot and ankle at the optimum angle to maximise gait. These Orthoses will improve balance, eliminate pain, reduce falls, reduce fatigue and prevent/reduce further joint and muscle changes which would otherwise significantly hinder walking pattern in later life.

Diabetes
Loss of peripheral neuropathy in the foot results in a loss of sensation and sadly an increase in the incidence of skin breakdown. Often diabetics also suffer reduced skin repair, thus prevention of the formation of an ulcer in the Diabetic Foot is of the utmost importance.

Treatment

  • A diabetic podiatrist will inspect your skin and address wound care.
  • The Orthotist will provide Made to Measure Footwear with Custom Moulded Foot Orthotics (arch supports) to protect the foot from breakdown.

Arthritis
There are various types of Arthritis, the two most common being Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Osteoarthritis
This is a degenerative joint disease in which the joints lose their normal range of motion. The joint therefore becomes stiff and painful. As it is a degenerative disease the conditions will certainly progress. As one joint stiffens it will bring about changes and pain in other joints.

OA affects numerous joints in the body with OA in the big toe joint being extremely common.

Treatment

  • Knee Supports help to relieve painful symptoms
  • Foot Orthotics (arch supports) help relieve symptoms in the lower back, hip, knee, ankle and foot and are very effective in reducing the rate of joint destruction.
  • Surgery may be required to replace the damaged joint in the most severe cases, commonly a method of bunion treatment.

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Often leads to chronic painful feet. Lumps and nodules can form on the bottom of the feet and may lead to skin breakdown. Many sufferers of this condition complain of pain in the balls of the feet.

Treatment

  • Knee Supports, Foot Orthotics (Insoles) and Specialist Footwear will help reduce foot pain, knee pain, hip pain and back pain. The foot orthotics are particularly effective in reducing symptoms which may be aggravated by foot pronation (flat feet) and can be used as a method of bunion treatment.
