Better arch support is a primary reason why many people turn to insoles. This is because the arches play an important role in the functioning of our feet. Likewise, many lower body injuries can actually be traced to dysfunction in the arches, including high and low arches.
The idea behind arch support insoles is that by addressing these dysfunctions, wearers can find relief from aches and pains, while lowering their risk of injury. However, not all insoles offer the same level of support. It’s also important to understand the need for an insole to not just provide arch support but to promote the natural mechanics of the feet.
In fact, some arch supports may actually be blocking the arch and hindering regular foot motion, which can potentially lead to compensatory injuries. This is particularly a risk among mass-market insoles available in retail outlets and is why higher-quality orthotics, both custom and ready-made, are a solution that many wearers turn to.
How arch support insoles should work
Ideally, orthotic insoles should provide arch support in a way that works with, not against, your biomechanics. To accomplish this, orthotics makers can take custom measurements, perform movement tests and use 3D modeling to gain deeper insight into how a person’s arches are structured and perform. Using this information, experts can create a pair of fully custom orthotic insoles that provide natural arch support.
At Biocorrect Custom Foot Orthotics Lab, our biomechanical experts create handcrafted orthotics based on more than 25 years of experience addressing the common issues and injuries that affect the lower body. That means we understand how the arches work in conjunction with other parts of the feet in order to provide stable movement. With our high-quality insoles, wearers can get the support they need and address a range of injuries, including:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis
- Runner’s knee
- Hip pain
In addition to our custom orthotics, we also offer a full line of semi-custom and ready-made insoles that provide natural arch support and are made with the same care and expertise.
