Ingenious use of insoles to improve plantar disease

1, flat feet


Flatfoot is caused by the relaxation of the plantar ligaments. Causes include foot skeletal muscle abnormalities and genetic factors. Most flatfoot patients have no obvious discomfort, but severe flatfoot can cause foot fatigue and pain after walking and exertion. Swelling and tenderness of the plantar and instep may occur, and even back pain and hip and knee pain may be secondary. Medical orthopedic insoles can support arch, balance plantar pressure distribution.


2, followed by bone spurs


Posterior spondylolisthesis is the long-term plantar fascia caused by bone calcaneal bone hyperplasia caused by the phenomenon. Most spurs no obvious pain, some will have chronic pain. At present, there are many drugs for the treatment of spur but none of them can dissolve or eliminate the spur because the spur is a compensatory skeletal material that grows from normal bones without any difference from the hardness of human bones.


Followed by a long bone spine should pay attention to work and rest, appropriate to participate in physical exercise, such as the pain can be used to heel ring or heel orthopedic insoles to relieve pain in the affected area.


3, hallux valgus


Due to congenital dysplasia or long-term wearing pointed shoes, high heels, toes are squeezed by external force led to the hallux valgus, resulting in protruding toe bone.


The best way to prevent hallux valgus is to wear a pair of suitable shoes, such as the choice of toe width or curved bottom shoes. In the early formation of hallux valgus, feet with hot water can temporarily ease the pain. Mild patients can pad the first and second toe pad, and wear orthosis at night to correct deformity.


4, plantar fasciitis


Plantar fascia is a plantar wide fan-shaped fascia, is a good support for the arch, can play a role in the buffer to absorb the reaction of the ground, and to provide flexibility for walking. However, excessive exercise, standing too long, over-obesity, pregnancy, prolonged wearing inappropriate shoes and other factors, will make the fascia is over-pulled, causing foot deformation or inflammation.


Wear functional shoes that are elastic and cushioning or support the arch of the foot with a therapeutic insole to relieve pain. Usually can often do foot lift exercise, plantar fascia to stretch exercise.


5, ranging from the lower limbs


Lower extremity unequal length is due to one side of the lower limb growth retardation or fracture caused by shortening healing, but also because of hip, knee, ankle deformity and the formation. As the normal lumbar spine unequal length of the lower limb has a certain compensatory function, so one side of the lower limb shortened less than 1 cm can not make up. Shortening 1 cm or more patients, long-term walking and standing can cause pelvic tilt, scoliosis, claudication, fatigue and low back pain, the need for correction.
