Why might shoe inserts help?

Types of shoe inserts used in research trials

Aren’t shoe inserts expensive?

If shoe inserts are customised specifically for you, they can be quite expensive. However, research tells us that this is not necessary for most people with knee cap pain.

Less expensive prefabricated shoe inserts (usually less than £50) can be used to treat knee cap pain. 


If you complete your rehabilitation exercises given to you by a physiotherapist and get stronger, shoe inserts may only be needed for a short time.

Some physiotherapists have the knowledge and skills to provide you shoe inserts and you should discuss this with the physiotherapist treating you. If not, they can refer you to see a podiatrist to help.
