future focus is working in partnership with FootBalance to bring you custom made orthotics. Using the FootBalance imaging system and moulding process we can assess the alignment of the lower legs, ankles, Achilles and feet to uncover any areas of misalignment or potential causes of pain. The analysis includes a full biodynamic assessment which allows the casting of individual and custom-made orthotics that are unique to each of your feet, further to this if any alignment or correction postings need adding to the base of the orthotics these can also be determined and added …… in short a complete and concise service.
The Difference of Custom Orthotics
Do you experience pain daily? Maybe you have plantar fasciitis or struggle with low back pain? Over-the-counter inserts may not provide the relief you need. Using FootBalance shells future focus custom made orthotics with the exact arch support and additional correctional postings can.
Your individual custom-made orthotics correctly support the entire arch of the foot, known as the plantar vault. They’re custom made and corrected by hand, based on your unique foot shape, gait, leg length and alignments. Just as no two bodies are alike, no two pairs of custom orthotics are alike.
Over-the-counter orthotics may initially cost less, but they may only support part of the arch in your foot. When the arch is incorrectly supported, it may not maintain the structure of your plantar vault, and problems can start in other parts of your body. In fact, “over-supporting” the arch of the foot may actually cause pain and symptoms, not relieve them.

Why Custom Orthotics
If you’re visiting a practitioner for physical treatment for pain, preventive care or to improve your athletic performance a set of custom-made orthotics may be able to support and help with any alignment or structural changes.
Why custom made?
Generic, off-the-shelf inserts risk worsening your symptoms because they address only general conditions and are made to fit a whole range of people and size and shape feet. Your feet are as unique as your fingerprints. Custom made orthotics at future focus are built specifically to meet your individual feet, gait and alignment needs.
Further to this, specific corrections are crafted by hand to correct left / right imbalance and over / under Pronation and any other mis-alignment specific to yourself. Custom made Orthotics help achieve a balanced foundation and a stabilized pelvis, and help any physical adjustments “hold” better.
Customized support helps balance the body from the ground up.

The 5 Red Flags of Pronation
There are 5 Red Flags or signs of pronation. If these signs are ignored and the causes are left untreated, foot problems can adversely affect the entire body. Moving from the ground up, a person who shows signs of pronation can have imbalances throughout the body, including internal knee rotation, pelvis tilt and a dropped shoulder. This imbalance can lead to larger issues like pain.
- Foot Flare: All pronators walk with foot flare, or “toe out.”
- Internal Knee Rotation: When the feet are flat on the floor, the lower extremity has its greatest distortion with the feet bilateral and asymmetrically pronated.
- Bowed Achilles Tendons: The ankle and foot appear to roll inwards, causing a bowing of the Achilles tendons, which will potentially deform over time.
- Flat Foot: At mid-stance, the patient will demonstrate the greatest degree of pronation and all 3 arches of the foot will have collapsed.
- Uneven Heel Wear: In the typical, bi-lateral, asymmetrically pronated foot, the heel strike will be uneven, creating uneven or asymmetrical heel wear.
All of these signs and symptoms can be improved with a set of custom made orthotics.
Low Back Pain
Low back issues are the most common conditions leading to pain and lost working days among working men and women under the age of forty-five. It is becoming a global epidemic, and a major factor in the ongoing overuse of pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs, but a set of custom made orthotics from future focus can help.
The feet are the foundation of the body; they support its entire weight. If there isn’t enough support from the feet, various parts of the body, particularly the spine, are exposed to additional stress, which can lead to a number of issues:
- Back, hip, knee and foot pain.
- Poor posture and abnormal foot function.
- Excessive shock transmission up through the body when walking or running.
- Impaired sports performance.
- Greater risk of injury.
