Shoe modification
Proper shoe modification helps people who have foot problems and cannot buy suitable footwear, to relieve symptoms.

Some people with the following foot problems find it difficult to buy a suitable pair of shoes : leg length discrepancy, diabetes, hallux rigidus, ankle arthritis, metatarsalgia or amputation. Our pedorthists examine these people and modify their footwear to meet their needs.

Shoe modification can help to improve the gait, and also alleviate the pain including metatarsalgia, pain caused by the rigidity of joints or hip pain caused by the leg length discrepancy.

  1. Raised Out-sole
    Indication: Leg length discrepancy

    Raising one side of the sole with proper height can alleviate the pain on the back, hip, knee and foot that caused by leg length discrepancy.
  2. Rocker Sole
    Indication: Ankle arthritis, hallux rigidus, metatarsalgia, diabetes or foot amputation

    There are wide ranges of indication for the rocker sole. Rocker sole cannot be bent at the forefoot while walking. This design can reduce the angle of forefoot dorsiflexion so as to reduce the pain due to metatarsalgia or problems of hallux rigidus. The arc-shaped rocker sole can also reduce the shock during heel strike which is beneficial to the patient with ankle arthritis.

    Moreover, diabetic patients are subject to higher risk of foot ulcer. The rocker sole can reduce the pressure on the forefoot and heel so as to reduce the chance of developing foot ulcer. The rocker sole also protects the residual limbs of patient with foot amputation with the use of toe filler and prescription custom foot orthoses.

    Shoes with ready-made rocker sole (Diabetic series and RA series ) are available in our pedorthic centres.
  3. Metatarsal Bar
    People suffering from metatarsalgia feel sharp pain at their forefoot whenever they raise their heels on walking. When a precise metatarsal bar is incorporated at the outsole of the shoes, the bending of the toes is reduced and hence the pain is relieved during walking.
