Achilles tendinitis is a common source of ankle pain that affects millions of people a year. While this is an overuse injury that can typically improve with rest and basic treatments, what many people don’t know is that biomechanical misalignments often play a large role in its development. This is particularly true of the feet, where even small deviations can increase stress and injury risk all the way up our chain of movement.
Since the Achilles tendon connects the calf muscle directly to the heel of the foot, it very often bears the brunt of these mechanical issues. This can throw off ankle alignment and develop into injuries such as tendinitis. Fortunately, there are ways to address these biomechanical abnormalities, with orthotic insoles being an effective and popular option. If you’re looking for the best orthotics for Achilles tendinitis, we’ve created the following informative overview of what to look for so you can make a more informed decision.
Finding a high-quality orthotic
Foot orthotics can provide a wide range of benefits, from simply giving you increased comfort during a long day to addressing biomechanical concerns. Since the structure, alignment and movement of each person’s feet are all different, custom-fitted orthotics are often recommended for people searching for a solution to Achilles tendinitis.
However, not all custom orthotics are the same. It’s important to find insoles that can provide the following qualities:
- A fully personalized fit
- Expert craftsmanship backed by biomechanical expertise
- Made from high-quality materials
Orthotics that simply block or support one part of the foot can increase the chances of compensatory injuries due to increased pressure on another part of the foot. Instead, the best orthotics should promote the natural mechanics of the entire foot and the entire kinetic chain.
