Insoles, are supportive devices that are placed in your shoes. These can be easily slipped into most types of footwear and help treat foot posture problems such as flat arches.
Insoles are also used to treat painful foot conditions such as plantar fasciitis, bunions or Morton’s neuroma – all of which can be linked to foot posture problems.
While there are all kinds of insoles available in the market, there are mainly two categories that exist: custom and off-the-shelf. What’s the difference?
An off-the-shelf (or ready-to-wear) insole refers to a standardised insole that is produced in large quantities for many foot conditions.
This means, you may have to routinely replace your insoles since they don’t remain effective for long.
This becomes even more essential if you’re an athlete involved in sports, such as running or cycling, that increase pressure on your feet. It would also be helpful if your insole has a formed heel cup for added support and stability during a game.
Plantar fasciitis is typically associated with pain in the arch and heel; this pain gets worse especially in the mornings after taking the first few steps out of bed, or walking after a period of rest.
Moreover, insoles also assist in stabilising the foot arch especially when included as part of a comprehensive rehab plan that consists of calf stretching and arch strengthening exercises.
This is because diabetic feet are sensitive and need to be cushioned properly in order to protect them from wounds or ulcers. With extra cushioning and lightweight materials, there is a reduced chance of friction with the bottom of the foot.
People often wonder if there’s a cure for flat feet. While it is tempting to seek out a permanent solution for the condition, it helps to know which treatment is the most effective in getting results.
