The Right Insole for You
There are hundreds of options out there which help with all sorts of conditions and choosing the right one for you can be a tough choice. So, allow us to help. Below is are a few reasons why you should look into getting insoles and whats the best type for you.
Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common foot conditions in the country and plagues millions.The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk. When seeking relief from plantar fasciitis & arch pain, you'll want to look for an orthotic with good arch support. If you have room in your shoes, a layer of foam cushioning will help further alleviate pain, otherwise look for low-profile insoles to accomodate tighter-fitting footwear.
When standing, pronation occurs as the foot rolls inwards and the arch of the foot flattens, hense the term often used to describe someone who over pronates as having 'flat feet'. To correct pronation, look for either a semi-rigid or rigid orthotic arch support to help keep the foot aligned and supported at all times. The combination of arch support and heel support that you will find in an orthotic arch support will naturally help to correct over-pronation.
