The feet, knees and hips cannot be thought of as individual components, therefore, if you suffer with knee or hip pains, there is a strong likelihood that the feet will be compensating for the problems above or instrumental in exacerbating the knee and hip pains.

After a musculoskeletal examination orthoses (insoles) may be used to reduce the stresses to the knees and hips by altering the forces of the foot and ankle.

A prescriptive course of exercises may also be used.
