Biomechanical assessment

Orthotics Carlow provide state of the art, custom-made orthotics to support you in your recovery from injury, prevent injury or if you require help with a foot related disorder…

Why Orthotics?

Poor foot mechanics can cause foot pain and unnecessary stresses further up the body, resulting in knee, hip pain, back pain, and even neck pain.

Custom made orthotics address the imbalances caused by improper foot function. The orthotics are engineered to your specific needs, after a biomechanical assessment and computerized gait scan has taken place. Tog Custom made orthotics work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes- they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment.

Custom made Orthotics are designed in such a way that they fit comfortably like an insole in your shoe and but have the advantage of having been custom made for exact imprints of your feet.

Custom made Tog orthotics are biomechanical medical appliances which are made to correct your own specific foot imbalances rather than the generic off the shelf model which is not specific to your problem.
By working with the industry leaders in orthotics –Tog Orthotics International; we partnered with an orthotic manuufactuter with a track record of providing orthotics to elite athletes at the highest level, with a  lifetime guarantee against orthotic shell damage guaranteeing a durable premium product.

Gait Scan
Our Gaitscan system offers the most advanced method of analysing the distribution of force through the feet, whilst standing and walking. Recording over a million points of data, the scanning devices provide<
Chronic Pain Syndrome
Dry Needling

Dry needling is the insertion of sterile single use acupuncture needles directly into myofascial (muscular) trigger points.  Trigger points are tight, tender knots within the muscle which cause and contribute to pain within the body.  Research studies have shown that inserting such needles into trigger points causes favourable biochemical changes within the body, which help reduce pain.

Although dry needling uses the same needles as acupuncture, it is not the same technique.  Dry needling is strictly based upon Western medicine principles of treating myofascial trigger points, which are different to traditional acupuncture points.

Dry needling can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal problems as the treatment of muscles with this technique can reduce pain mechanisms and break down pain cycles. It is best used in combination with the specific rehabilitation programme as prescribed by your physiotherapist.

Ergonomic Assessments and Advice

Applying ergonomics to the workplace improves productivity and performance, improves quality of work, reduces potential for injury and absenteeism, cuts compensation claims and saves costly mistakes in equipment purchase.

Our team of trained physiotherapists evaluate the workstation and the physical environment and its interaction with the employee. We can help you to make sure that tasks, equipment, information and the environment suit each worker.
