4 SIGNS IT’S TIME FOR ORTHOTICS

Orthotics are shoe inserts that are tailored for you and your feet, helping to relieve various foot and ankle ailments. They can also be called insoles, footbeds, or inserts. Many people think of orthotics as something for the elderly, but that is simply not the case. In fact, we’d be willing to bet most people – of all ages – could benefit from the use of orthotics. While not everyone is going to begin using orthotics, here are 4 signs it’s time to begin exploring orthotics:

 

Inconsistencies in Your Shoe Treads
Take a look at the bottom of your shoes. Is the tread worn evenly? Have you noticed it’s more worn out than it should be in some places? If so, you may suffer from pronation or supination, the process of rolling our foot inward or outward while you walk. Orthotics can elevate your foot in necessary areas and make this a non-issue.

 

Your Arch is Higher or Lower than Normal
Everyone’s arch is different, but if you are someone who suffers from an extra high arch or an extra flat one, then it’s a great time to consider orthotics. Orthotics can offer the necessary support to balance the arch and prevent unnecessary injuries. 

 

You’ve Recently Suffered a Lower Body Injury
We tend to change our walk with injury of the foot, ankle, knee, or hip is involved. We may do it without even noticing it! While it may take the pressure off of our injury, shifting weight can put unnecessary strain on your feet. Orthotics can help provide cushioning in areas that are stressed. 

 

Prolonged Periods of Standing
If you’re regularly standing for 5+ hours at a time, then orthotics are almost a must. They provide cushioning to tired feet and prevent plantar fasciitis, a common ailment of those who stand for long periods of time.
