I have been wearing orthotics prescribed by Caroline Spencer since 2008; I was first referred to Caroline by my physiotherapist who had been treating me for back and hip pain. Wearing the orthotics has improved my overall posture and has reduced the number of injuries allowing me to enjoy my sport at a competitive level.
I had a knee injury in February 2009 which was still giving me trouble and preventing me from playing even 6 months post injury- I was advised to see Caroline and after being assessed running was prescribed functional orthoses from her which immediately cured my knee pain and 2 years on from the injury I have still never had any further trouble with it and wear the orthoses all the time.
I’ve had problems with my feet for years and has recently led to me being ruled out of European and Asian competitions. I went to see Caroline after being diagnosed with Tenosynovitis of the peroneal tendon sheaths and previous stress fracture injuries to the shin. This was caused by constant sharp turning at speed; as my foot would always roll in on itself. From the first assessment to this present day the service has been fantastic. The delivery of the orthoses to Europe was very fast and the time to get used to the orthoses was very quick. They fit perfectly in my hockey shoes and withstand playing at high intensity on water. I have not had a problem with my foot since being given the orthoses.
