To know exactly what are the best orthotics for you it is important to know how your feet work and how orthotics should work. Arches are dynamic in structure and are not in a fixed position. With two arches in your feet, the first and most apparent arch being the longitudal arch the second is the transverse arch. The transverse arch lies across the mid foot. Some people think that there is another arch of the foot the metatarsal arch across the ball of the foot however this arch does not exist. There is actually no need for an arch across the ball of the foot because metatarsal heads can bear their own weight however if pressure and weight becomes too much damage can occur to the metatarsal area. You can buy metatarsal pads to elevate some of the pressure off the metatarsals.
Some other misconceptions about feet include fallen and high arches with many thinking that these problems are the main causes to pain and injury however fallen or high arches do not pose a problem so long as the function of the foot is correct whilst walking this is because how the foot functions is far more important than the actual structure of your arches.
It is actually when the foot is pronated that problems such as pain and injury arise. This is why wearing foot orthotics is so important because they can help to improve the overall foot function. When buying orthotic insoles it is best to find a pair that allows for subtalar joint pronation which helps with your feet’s natural shock absorption as your feet make contact with the ground. Stable support is also needed to act a rigid lever when you shift weight as you walk. Insoles help to realign and correct imbalances and instabilities in your feet that can affect foot function. With in-built arch support that give your feet just the right amount of support ie not too much and not too little. Plus with added shock absorption you just cannot go wrong!
We have a wide range of orthotics including insoles made from carbon fibre which offer light weight, durable yet strong support. Our carbon fiber insoles have been shaped to help correct underlining biomechanical problems including imbalances in your feet and pronating arches.
We have in stock a number of a full length insoles that support and protect your whole foot as well as a number specialized 3/4 heel orthotic insoles that just cover the heel and arch of your foot.
All of our full length insoles have in built arch, heel and metatarsal support. Plus they are made from shock absorbing and cushioned material with breathable holes to keep your feet sweat free and feeling fresh!
If you are suffering from tight pain in the arches of your feet as your run your maybe suffering what is commonly called plantar fasciitis. Over pronation is one of the most common causes of plantar fasciitis. Over pronation is when your foot rolls inward too much as you run or walk this can cause stress and tightness in the arch which can increase the risk of damage to the arch of your foot. Pronated arches can also cause the arch of the feet to become tight this can also cause the plantar fascia which makes up the longitudinal arch to be more easily overused and stretched.
Abnormal loads and sudden or consistent impact shocks which can arise as your feet strike the ground whilst you run or jump can play havoc on your feet and can also cause you problems, plus with excessive load on the foot especially whilst running can place even more pressure and shock on your feet and is sure fire way of developing plantar fasciitis however with inbuilt arch support our insoles help to give your feet that extra support that they so need. Nuova Health insoles are made from special shock absorbing EVA material that helps you give your feet an extra layer of protection that depletes the impact of shock on your feet.
Fallen or high arches can cause your feet to become more susceptible to pronation problems and at great risk of overt stretching and straining.
The tendons, muscles and tendons found in other parts of your body can also be affected by your gait and how your feet are supported. Causing excessive and unnatural stress on these parts of your body can cause the onset of injuries such as knee tendonitis or even back pain.
Our foot orthotics helps to adjust and correct bio-mechanical imbalances that can cause abnormal gait and pronantion in the foot which can in turn cause injury.
How your feet pronantes is key to reducing stress and unnatural load on your feet whilst you run.
Help to correct pronation to a suitable level.
Specially crafted insoles like the ones available at Nuova Health will make standing for long periods at a time far more comfortable as well as making your feet better able to cope from the harsh impacts that can result from simply running or walking.
Happy new year to everyone, we hope you are as excited about the new year as we are and this is the first blog post of the new year for Nuova Health! In this post we will briefly update you on the latest new product ranges to arrive at Nuova Health for this year.
For 2014 we will slowly bring in our new supports range of products. As you could see last year we brought in the magnetic back support to aid posture correction but now this will be joined by our knee support range. The knee supports have been brought in just in time for the winter as it is during the cold season that the knees become more painful if you have a knee condition and so these supports are designed so you can still live an active life but relieve some of the pain during these winter months. We will be looking to expand our supports range in the future so keep checking back.
Also as it is new year many of our customers will be following new years resolutions and the most popular one for many is the desire to get fit. Nuova Health have thus introduced a new range of resistance band products so you can gently work your muscles whilst following pilates or yoga style workout routines. These resistance bands are designed to be portable and easy to use, so you can workout anywhere you want to. No more expensive gym fees either.
You can look forward to further blog posts in the future where we detail different types of Yoga and Pilates exercises so you can gain the most from your resistance bands.
Whatever your goals are for the new year, lets hope that yours will be a healthy new year for you.

We all know about the popularity of cosmetic surgery to enhance the breasts. However cosmetic surgery comes with real risks and adverse outcomes. Additional surgery may be required to remove the implant, scar tissue can form around the implant and squeeze the implant causing a risk of rupture which can lead to poisoning as well as pain in the area and nipple and breast sensation can change.
Whilst breast implants can certainly improve confidence we at Nuova Health believe the risks far outweigh the rewards. These risks are real and well documented as is evidenced by the recent implant scandal in the UK revolving around poor quality implant materials being used and the risk of severe outcomes due to these suddenly rupturing.
