Whether you’re a nurse seeking a more comfortable shift, an athlete looking to train harder or someone dealing with chronic foot pain or related symptoms, orthotic insoles may be able to help. While many people use and benefit from insoles that can be sold over-the-counter, others require a custom-made solution.
To help you determine which type of insole may be right for you, we’re providing this informative and easy-to-understand guide to help you make a more confident decision.
How to know if you need custom orthotic insoles
Custom orthotic devices traditionally use a plaster or foam casting of a person’s foot to create an insole that can provide better fit and support to the wearer. Advances in technology have allowed this casting to be scanned into a computer to create a functional 3-D model of the foot.
Custom orthotic insoles can be recommended for people with the following concerns:
- Narrow or wide feet
- Biomechanical irregularities such as over- or under-pronation
- Structural issues like high arches, flat arches or collapsed arches
- Injuries like plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis and stress fractures
- Medical problems like diabetes, arthritis, scoliosis and multiple sclerosis
While custom orthotics have traditionally required in-person consultations and fittings, it is now possible to order them online with the development of custom fitting kits and scanning technology.
