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 was constantly going over on my ankles during competitive games and since wearing the orthoses prescribed by Caroline I have not had a non contact ankle injury since and they are 100% comfortable in my boots; I am really happy with them.
I had the orthotics made after suffering a stress fracture in my left foot. Since I have started to use them there has been no trouble whatsoever with my feet and they have also helped a lot of other problems.
I used to suffer a build up of back pain and often quite bad blisters on my feet from my rugby boots, but ever since I began using the orthotics these problems have yet to resurface.
Big thank you to Caroline Spencer and the Loughbrickland Clinic!
