Custom insoles for arthritic joints

Biocorrect, LLC


If you suffer from arthritis, custom orthotic insoles may be able to help. Arthritis is a common condition that many people suffer from around the world. It can cause symptoms like joint pain, stiffness and reduced mobility. Various techniques for alleviating arthritis symptoms have been developed over the years. Orthotics are one treatment option that can help effectively address arthritic joints.

Arthritis refers to the inflammation of joints in the body. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the most common types of arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, is a degenerative disease caused by wear and tear. Both types have similar symptoms, involving joint pain and swelling.

How custom insoles can help with arthritic joints

  • Enhanced shock absorption — Custom orthotics are designed to provide superior cushioning. This helps them to absorb shock with each step. Orthotics work to distribute pressure evenly across the foot, which can reduce impact to specific areas. This can help alleviate joint tension when walking or running. By absorbing shock, orthotics can alleviate the stress placed on arthritic joints.

  • Improved foot stability — Arthritis can weaken muscles and ligaments. When the area around the affected joint is weakened, it is more unstable. This can make you more vulnerable to falls and injury. Custom orthotics can help address this by providing improved foot stability. These shoe insoles are designed to match the contours of your individual arches. This personalization can help prevent excess foot movement within the shoe. By reducing strain and shifting movements, orthotics can help minimize pain from arthritis.

  • Optimized biomechanical alignment — Custom orthotics are designed to align with your body. Before receiving orthotics, certified pedorthists study your biomechanical imbalances. This allows them to make insoles that properly address the weight-bearing structures of your foot. This can improve joint function and reduce pain. It can even help slow down the progress of certain kinds of arthritis.
