You’re on your feet all day, and the busier you are, the harder they have to work. A misaligned foundation will not function as it should, and the effects can be felt in your feet, knees, hips, back and neck. Custom insoles can give your feet the support they need when you stand, walk, run, or work out by balancing out pressure spots and providing an extra level of relief and comfort.
The feet provide a support base for the entire human skeleton. If your feet are badly aligned, your entire body suffers.
Custom insoles provide proper balance and support for your feet, improving your overall body alignment; helping to activate your body’s natural healing system and making you feel more energized and free from pain.
What are Custom Insoles?
Custom insoles – also known as custom orthotics – are custom made inserts, molded specifically to your feet. They are placed inside your footwear in order to support your foot’s natural arch and structure. Custom insoles are functional medical devices that are specifically designed to correct your body’s bio-mechanical misalignments, and optimize your foot’s function. They should not be confused with regular insoles that merely provide shock absorption and a cushioning effect.
By improving your foots biomechanics, many common complaints can be alleviated, including:
Overpronation is one of the most common types of poor foot biomechanics, and it affects approximately two-thirds of people. It causes the arches to drop and roll inwards of the ankles and feet. Custom insoles can help correct overpronation by realigning the foot and ankle to a more neutral position.
Some cases of overpronation require timely, proper treatment to help prevent serious foot problems, including:
and ankle pain.
Custom insoles are an (inexpensive yet) effective solution that can be considered an investment in your health, as it can reduce or even eliminate common body aches and pains.
