Foot pain, in general, is a common ailment. According to the National Library of Medicine, 17% to 30% of the population suffer from foot pain. When you drive for long periods, your body eventually loses its comfortable position, and your feet and legs may suffer. This can cause foot pain, numbness or tingling in the toes, or even leg cramps. The pain is often worse if you have certain health conditions like diabetes or arthritis.
Custom orthotics are designed to correct foot imbalances and prevent common foot problems. They may also be able to help with foot discomfort caused by driving. Here are three features of custom orthotics that can help avoid driving-related foot pain:
- Improved distribution of weight.
- Proper arch support.
- Stability and support for your heel.
Helping foot pain from driving with orthotics
The daily commute can be a real drag. For some, it can be a real pain in the foot. Foot pain from driving is common and can be managed with help from orthotics. Here are three benefits of custom orthotics:
- Improved weight distribution — Orthotics can improve weight distribution across your feet when shifting gears and pushing on the gas pedal or brake pedal over a long time. So, it's evenly distributed rather than putting too much strain on one part of your foot.
- Proper arch support — These custom inserts are designed to support your arch and heel; with orthotics for driving, you can be on the road longer without the pain from driving with flat feet or high arches.
- Stability and support for your heel — The inserts create increased stability and support when driving. While you’re driving, orthotics absorb the shock transferred through the car's flooring and into your heel.
