Foot arch support — What do insoles do?

Biocorrect, LLC


In the feet, the arches are structures made from bone and soft tissue that help to support us as we stand and stabilize the foot as we perform basic movements like walking, running or jumping. Because of this, the arches are put under tremendous pressure on a day-to-day basis. In some cases, people have structural irregularities that make their arches less able to withstand this strain. For example, people can have abnormally high or low arches, which can affect the foot’s ability to rotate properly and can cause uneven distribution of energy throughout the foot. This can make the development of certain injuries more likely, including heel pain, ankle pain and even knee pain. 

Orthotic insoles can address this by providing increased support for the arches. However, to get the most benefit, insoles should be made from high grade materials for durability and be designed to the measurements of the wearer’s foot, particularly their arches. 

How can custom orthotic insoles provide enhanced arch support?

Custom orthotic insoles are typically made by taking an impression of the feet that is used to create a functional model. Being fitted for orthotics can also often involve movement tests to analyze gait, posture and basic mechanics. Custom foot arch support can offer the following benefits: 

  • Promotes natural movement 
  • Decreases issues like pronation and supination
  • Increased comfort for long periods of time spent on the feet
  • Helps the arches perform their natural role of shock absorbers
