Foot pain can affect people from all walks of life. From workers who spend all or part of a shift on their feet, to athletes of all ability levels, sore or even injured feet can make it difficult to get through a workday or play your favorite sport. There’s a number of reasons for this, but improper foot support can be a large contributor. Misalignments and imbalances in the feet can cause excessive strain in certain areas, such as the heel or arch, and the potential for injuries and discomfort.
For increased comfort and support, many people dealing with foot pain or injury turn to custom made foot orthotics. If you’re wondering whether this might be a viable option for you, we’ve created the following guide to help you learn more.
Signs that custom made foot orthotics may be right for you
To relieve sore or painful feet, people have a number of options at their disposal. The classic “RICE” method of rest, ice, compression and elevation can be very beneficial. It is also important to properly stretch before any physical activity, including sports, exercise or even a long shift at a physically demanding job.
Despite these measures, many people still find themselves contending with foot problems and may wonder if custom-made foot orthotics are required. If any of the following indicators apply to you, custom orthotics should be a serious consideration:
- You’ve tried orthopedic shoes.
- You’ve tried over-the-counter insoles.
- You’ve seen a qualified professional and been diagnosed with high or low arches.
- Your pain is beginning to interfere with your quality of life.
The benefit of a custom-made foot orthotic is that it is crafted to the exact specifications of your foot. Custom insoles are also made of more durable and higher-quality material than many over-the-counter options.
