How do custom shoe inserts for ankle pain work?

Biocorrect, LLC


To help relieve ankle pain associated with issues like Achilles tendinitis, many people turn to generic, mass-market insoles that are sold at drug stores or sporting goods stores. While they may offer short-term relief for some, these insoles can quickly wear out and take a one-size-fits-all approach to feet. 

If these don’t offer relief, custom shoe inserts that are designed to address conditions like ankle pain are sought by many people looking to regain a normal activity level and find relief from pain. For people in this situation, the Biocorrect Custom Foot Orthotics Lab team wants to help you better understand how custom orthotics can work to help address the symptoms and underlying causes of ankle pain. 

Features of shoe inserts to treat ankle pain

Ankle pain can be caused by a number of issues related to misalignments in the feet and biomechanical issues. If you think you are dealing with one of these conditions, you should seek the assistance of a doctor or other qualified medical professional for diagnosis and treatment. In addition to treatments like rest, stretching, cold compression, heat therapy and elevation, you may be recommended to get yourself fitted for custom shoe inserts to assist with recovery from ankle pain. 

Inserts can help in the following ways: 

  • Provide increased heel cushioning — By absorbing shock from every step, increased cushioning can help relieve pain and inflammation by reducing pressure on the ankle. 
  • Provide arch support — In some cases, ankle pain can be related to irregular foot movement related to high or low arches. Arch support can decrease the tension and stress on the ankle as well, potentially relieving this condition.
