yes, didn't think of that - I don't often have time to post but like to promote what I think is good so when I saw various relevant posts I answered. Hard to know what to write, there seem to be a lot of people recommending products, practitioners etc so it felt ok to post about someone who works well (only my opinion of course!) People can then choose whether to research it more. Sorry if it's come across the wrong way ... will keep quiet in future
I understand that some people don't like orthotics but others really benefit from them - as someone was looking for orthotics and I know Norbert does good work I wanted to add my bit of advice ... so I posted. Hope that's ok
I've got Foot Factor insoles and they've made a huge difference to me - I did some research and they're cheaper than many podiatrists charge and also made while I waited. You may find the cheaper versions aren't made from scratch, they often use premoulded shapes which can help to some extent but just aren't the same as fully tailored orthotics - I know from experience! I also went for a free assessment before deciding to book the full appt. That let me see what was offered and made me feel confident about getting them.
I'd highly recommend Norbert at Foot Factor. He hand made my orthotics while I was there (it's a real craft!) and they've made a huge difference to my running and also everyday life. No more pain, very comfy, just feel more supported and stable and I'm sure my posture is much better.
I went for a free consultation before I booked in which was really helpful. Worth giving him a call.
