Many of us work on our feet or exercise multiple times per week. This means, that without a doubt, our feet need protection. This though, goes further than just wearing comfortable shoes. If you are experiencing foot pain, your feet may not be getting enough of the protection it needs.
Every pair of shoes and sneakers comes with supports or in soles inside the shoe. These in soles are generic and made for the average mass population. They do little to protect one’s foot from foot pain, exercise, and long hours on one’s feet. Such uncomfortableness can cause further foot conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, corns, calluses, and heel pain.
As a Sun City foot doctor and Scottsdale foot doctor, I know that the way to end this foot pain is by getting custom insoles, or custom orthotics, that fit specifically to your feet and your feet alone. This means that your feet will get maximum support from the shoes that you are wearing because the in soles fit perfectly to your feet.
Many of my patients are drastically surprised at how much better they feel on their feet because they have in soles that fit them and most people don’t know this is even a problem until they actually get orthotics! Orthotics can particularly help those with flat feet and high arched feet to get better support.
If you are experiencing foot pain, there is a good chance that orthotics will relieve this pain making it easier and more comfortable to be on your feet as well as giving your feet better protection throughout your life to prevent foot problems down the road.
