To accomplish the basic movements required for daily activity, our bodies need to be highly interconnected. Known as the kinetic chain, our muscles, bones and connective tissue have to pull on each other in a very precise way to allow us to walk, stand, bend, twist or do anything else required of us.
Because of this, even relatively minor misalignments and imbalances in one area can cause a chain reaction that affects neighboring regions, both near and far. This is especially true of the relationship between the arches in the feet and ankles. To accomplish movement, these two key structures have to work together. For example, if the foot rotates inward too much, it causes the ankle to have to overextend to propel the leg forward.
When this is repeated for step after step, it can lead to arch pain that is accompanied by ankle pain. If you are dealing with both types of pain that has not improved in a short period of time, it’s important to see your doctor for diagnosis and treatment. One common recommendation is orthotic insoles that can help support the arches and prevent excessive foot and ankle movement.
Orthotic insoles can offer relief for arch and ankle pain
Everyone has unique foot structure and mechanics that can lead to injury development in different ways. This is one of the reasons why mass-produced insoles only provide temporary relief for pain while higher-quality orthotics, particularly custom-fitted ones, can provide longer-lasting relief in the following ways:
- More durable and flexible materials help absorb the shock of repetitive movements.
- Custom support for the exact dimensions of your feet can help address misalignment and imbalances.
A common issue among prescription orthotics designed to relieve arch and ankle pain is the prohibitively high cost, the inconvenience involved with visiting a podiatrist for a fitting and the long wait time required for delivery of the product.
