Sometimes a person’s feet may hurt them and they have no idea why. They come in to see a podiatrist and find out their shoes are not right for them, or even the soles of their shoes do not support them well. Improper foot wear can cause a lot of pain especially if you are on your feet all day at work.
An essential part of footwear is the soles within the shoes and how they fit your feet. Everyone has a different foot and if you have a certain type of foot and are getting foot pain, you may extremely benefit from custom orthotics.
Custom orthotics are specially made soles that fit your feet perfectly and give you perfect support. Many patients I find reduce their foot pain tremendously just by using custom orthotics. People with flat feet, high-arched feet, those who exercise and play a lot of sports, those who work long hours on their feet may benefit from having this extra support.
The extra support provides a stability so your feet do not have to work as hard when you walk. Custom orthotics fit comfortably on your feet so you walk in an optimal way. The result is a supported foot and therefore, a foot that gets much less pain. You may be surprised after getting custom orthotics how when your at work, exercising, or just walking around, your feet no longer hurt and when your feet no longer hurt, you are happier, life is better, and you can do a better job at what you are doing.
Of course foot care is crucial to daily life. No one wants to walk around with foot pain and custom orthotics is a simple solution that can have you walking around with no pain all because your foot is being supported the right way.
