This Is Why You Are Having Foot Pain......
There are many foot condition which require the use of prescription orthotics to relieve severe foot pain. In ordinary store-bought shoes, the in soles located inside one's shoes are there to provide padding for your foot while you walk and move around. They are a key aspect of a comfortable shoe and comfortable walking and are a separate part from the shoe itself.
The problem is that these in-soles are generic, made for the masses, to fit the average foot in order that the shoe works well for the most amount of people that buy it. In this way, the most amount of people will then be able to buy the shoes.
In actuality, everyones’ feet are shaped differently. Like fingerprints, all feet are different. For many people, generic in-soles work fine to provide a comfortable shoes but for people with flat feet and high-arched feet, these in-soles provide little support because they do not align to the shape of the foot.
One is walking uncomfortably on in-soles that don’t match up with the shape of one’s foot and as a result, foot pain comes quickly and remains constant. If you are suffering from foot pain, even just a small amount of pain, and have a flat foot or a high-arched foot, it is important to see your podiatrist immediately and get yourself a pair of custom orthotics.
