Foot pain can make it difficult to get through a day of work, play your favorite sport or get things done around the house. In addition to basic care like putting their feet up or putting them in an ice bath, many people turn to orthotic insoles. By far, the most common and readily available type of foot orthotics are the prefabricated insoles you encounter at retail outlets like drugstores.
For many people, these inserts are sufficient for supporting and cushioning the feet during daily activities. However, for others, foot pain and other problems can persist, or they find themselves wearing through store-bought insoles on a frequent basis. In these and other situations, custom-made foot orthotics can become a serious consideration.
If you are wondering if custom orthotics could help you, here’s a simple overview of the primary reasons people seek them out.
People who use custom-made foot orthotics
Custom orthotics are made from an impression of the wearer’s feet. This means an insole that is made to the exact measurements and structure of the foot. Additionally, custom orthotics are created from high quality materials that offer more hours of comfort and support and last for a longer period of time before they need to be replaced.
These qualities can be particularly helpful for people dealing with the following:
- Misalignments and mechanical difficulties of the feet
- Injuries affecting the feet, ankles, knees, hips and even the back
- Working long shifts and/or a physically demanding job
- Playing high-impact sports or endurance sports, like running
While in the past custom-made foot orthotics typically required a doctor’s prescription, it is now possible to order fully custom orthotics from the comfort of your own home.
