Did you know that almost 8 in 10 Americans have experienced foot problems to some degree? This article we’ll tell you why our inserts have a great advance to your foot!
Foot pain can be both bothersome and debilitating.
Properly fitted shoes & orthotics are one of the most effective ways to help manage foot pain.
By offering the support you need, orthotics can help improve your mobility, boost your endurance and help prevent fatigue during activity.
What is an orthotic? : Derived from the Greek ortho, which means “to straighten” or “align,” orthotics are a specialty within the medical field concerned with the design, manufacture and application of orthoses.
An orthosis (plural: orthoses) is an externally applied device used to modify the structural and functional characteristics of the neuromuscular and skeletal system. This is the formal definition.
Orthotics can be used to describe a variety of devices, including everything from on-the-shelf insoles to custom orthotics.
Most people do not require the rather costly investment required for custom orthotics, but can see relief & improvement of issues with custom selected, high quality orthotic insoles.
When choosing an orthotic, you will need to be sure to have your foot type and size properly measured so you can get the orthotic that will give your feet precisely the support they require.
Key factors about what orthotics can do for you
- Orthotics can be a winning component in foot care.
- There is substantial research supporting the use of orthotics with heel spurs, plantar fasciitis and even Chondromalacia (Runners Knee).
- Orthotics can aid in support and function all the way from the toes to the lower back.
Who can benefit? Just about everyone!
Foot pain sufferers
Most people who experienced foot problems of varying degrees can benefit from the added support and cushion from orthotics.
Knee and back pain sufferers
Many people have chronic, lingering pain in their knees, hips and low back that has not responded to traditional treatment. If your pain is due to your foot mechanics, orthotics can be a very effective way to relieve your symptoms.
People who work on their feet
Hours on hard surfaces, walking and doing physical work can take its toll on the lower extremities, especially your feet. At the end of the day orthotics–with their supportive and cushioning qualities–help reduce fatigue.
People who want to improve daily wellness
Just because you have no ailments today is more the reason to keep up with preventative care so you an feel good and keep doing more with age.
People with diabetes
Diabetes frequently results in neuropathy, or nerve damage, in the feet. This can lead to sensation loss, leaving a patient unable to feel pain, heat or cold – which can also lead to stress and strain on other parts of the body. Millions of people use orthoses to reduce such strain.
People with arthritis
Arthritis is a destructive condition which affects the body’s joints. When it strikes certain joints in the body, a variety of painful conditions can arise. In many cases, foot orthoses can be employed to help patients retain and enhance mobility.
Athletes and runners
In an effort to enhance physical performance, many athletes rely on custom-made orthotics to keep the foot in its most efficient alignment, allowing the bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments to work at 100% efficiency, prevent injury, relieve pain and increase efficiency.

People who are overweight
Orthotics relieve the stress and forces of extra weight off the ligaments in your feet and legs.
Lastly, it’s important to mention that there are lots of orthotics on the market and just like anything else most of the time you get what you pay for.
Drugstore orthotics have their benefits: available just about on every corner and somewhat low priced, but if they only last a short time and lose their strength and structure then certainly the benefits diminish quickly, including your foot health too.
