What types of performance lycra socks can we provide?

At Orthotics UK we are able to provide two different performance lycra socks:

Our performance lycra dorsiflex sock has been designed with athletes whose sport requires running and in particular sprinting. The dorsiflex sock works by actively lifting the foot to support the foot into a more efficient position which then helps to improve running pattern and in turn performance.

The performance lycra support sock is aimed at the prevention and rehabilitation of injuries consequently helping you to improve your performance and get back to sport quicker. It can help to reduce pain by actively lifting the foot to stretch the calf and off load the fascia where required.

Our experienced orthotists will be able to provide information about which type of sock would best support you.
