Do you have flat feet? Do your feet ache at the end of each day? Many people suffer from having flat feet. That’s when the arches in your feet don’t give you the support you need. This can lead to other problems, including knee and hip pain, and lower back issues. Imagine driving a car with no suspension! It would probably fall apart in next to no time. Your arches help your feet to absorb the forces of your body’s weight hitting the ground. But when someone has flat feet, that suspension isn’t there.
That’s where some good insoles can come in handy. Firm arch support insoles lift up the foot’s arch, providing the feet with the suspension they need. They reduce the strain on the feet. This can ease pain and swelling. Good insoles can also help patients with back pain. Why? It’s because they adjust how your feet hit the ground, which changes the entire body’s posture and gait.
Good arch support insoles should have three qualities. Firstly, they should provide firm arch support. They should also include a heel cup. And lastly, insoles should have a layer of cushioning to provide extra support to the whole foot.
Why do people with flat feet need good arch support? Flat feet can cause a painful condition that’s called plantar fasciitis. There’s a band of muscles that run under the foot from the bottom of the heel towards the toes. Plantar fasciitis is when this band gets inflamed. This can happen when your arches aren’t supported. It can also occur if you use soft foam insoles that only give poor arch support.
These firm arch support insoles provide the support you need. They won’t deflect or get squashed over time. You’ll probably notice a reduction in foot pain and swelling. Of course, it’s ideal if you wear them whenever you’ll be on your feet. The more you use arch support insoles, the less strain your feet will be under. These shoe inserts are suitable for relieving mild foot pain. If you have severe plantar fasciitis, consult with a specialist. You may need custom orthotics.
These insoles also have extra cushioning in the heel. Your heels naturally have a fatty pad beneath the heel bone. That decreases the impact on your feet when you walk. But we really weren’t meant to be walking on hard surfaces such as concrete all day. So we need extra help, especially people with flat feet.
A heel cup helps the heel to stay centred, so it can absorb impacts. This also helps your foot to be more stable, giving better support to the ankle joint. Your whole foot, ankle, and leg will be better aligned. That means you’ll have better balance as you stand and walk. This can also improve your performance in sports.
These inserts are made of breathable, lightweight material. They’re antibacterial so they won’t irritate your skin. The arch supports are ideal for daily use. They also include another important part of good insoles: extra cushioning. As we mentioned above, walking on concrete surfaces all day is damaging to your feet. The best insoles include a layer of foam on top of the arch support. This extra cushioning supports your feet and adds comfort.
You can easily cut these insoles to fit your shoes. Check to see if your shoes already have an insole and if so take it out. Put the insoles in your shoes to see how they fit, and trim them according to your shoe size. Use the outline on the bottom of the insoles, near the toes. Make sure the insert lays flat. If it doesn’t, trim a little more as you need to.
The arch supports will fit into most different kinds of shoes, such as boots, flats, and sneakers. They’ll also fit into high heels, but we don’t recommend you use high heels often if you already suffer from foot pain. High heels can aggravate foot conditions because they put your foot into awkward positions. Whatever shoes you use, make sure there’s enough room for the inserts and for your foot to fit comfortably.
