In this insightful video, Ron Heinlein, owner and CEO of DT Footwear, explores the significance of Charcot shoes and their role in addressing this specific foot condition. Hosted by Ryan Perry, this episode of the Feel The Difference Podcast sheds light on Charcot shoes and the importance of proper footwear for individuals dealing with this condition.
Understanding Charcot Foot
Charcot foot is a condition where the arch of the foot collapses and breaks down, leading to the formation of a “lump” underneath the arch. This lump can cause discomfort and requires proper support from specialized shoes that can accommodate the Charcot condition.
The Need for Charcot Shoes
Most conventional shoes lack the necessary support for Charcot foot. These shoes do not provide the essential foundation required to address the collapsed arch and the accompanying lump. Charcot shoes, on the other hand, are specially designed to offer the support and comfort needed for this condition by providing a wider “last” in the mid foot provided the extra room needed.
The Difference Between Charcot and Flat Feet
It’s crucial to differentiate between Charcot and flat feet. Charcot foot involves a collapsed and broken arch, while flat feet simply have a flattened arch without any structural issues. The type of footwear and inserts needed for these conditions differs significantly.
Importance of Inserts
Inserts play a vital role in Charcot shoes. Unlike inserts for flat feet, Charcot inserts have a flatter design to provide the necessary support without exacerbating the discomfort caused by the lump. These inserts help in maintaining proper foot health.
Identifying Charcot Foot
Charcot foot can cause sudden discomfort and the appearance of a lump on the side of the foot. It is essential to recognize these symptoms promptly and take appropriate medical measures to address them by seeing a qualified orthopedic.
