How Can Orthotic Insoles Help?
- Aug 29, 2018 -

Orthotic insoles can mitigate the pain and discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis because they minimize the stress and stretching of the plantar fascia that occurs when you stand or walk.

For example, if you are suffering from heel pain that is related to an abnormal inward motion of the foot (pronation), an orthotic insole with arch support will eliminate the excessive pronation and the stress on the plantar fascia.

In addition, orthotic insoles with a deep heel seat help absorb shocks because they have a cupping effect of the soft tissues around the heel, which then makes the soft tissues more effective at cushioning the heel bone. As a result, orthotic insoles and shoes with good shock absorption help reduce the impacts and pressure on the heel.

There are two types of orthotic insoles: Custom-made devices and standard devices. Since custom-made orthotics are much more expensive than standard orthotics, it might be wise to try nonprescription orthotic insoles, which are less costly, before investing in expensive custom-made orthotics.
