For those who don't wish to shell out money on expensive orthopedic shoes, using arch support inserts is definitely a more economical option. There are many reputed brands that are offering best insoles that facilitate arch support. The use of these shoe inserts can definitely prevent many of the common foot problems. You must, however, be careful while selecting the shoe inserts. If you are looking for shoe inserts, make sure that you buy the ones specially designed for the particular foot abnormality that you are suffering from. People with high arched feet and flat feet must buy insoles for high arches and flat feet respectively.

Heel bone spurs are nail-like growths that form around the ligaments and tendons of the foot where they attach to the heel bone. Common symptoms of a heel spur are intense pain in the heel on rising and aching in the foot that does not go away. These boney growths can dig into the inflamed flesh of the foot, causing pain. At the onset, the pain can be very sharp and will be present upon standing. As time passes, the sharp pain will become a dull aching feeling, but this can become a constant source of irritation for the patient.

Running shoe inserts come in four basic types. Inserts for arch support provide cushioning to compensate for a high or flat arch. Heel alignment inserts help keep the foot stable to correct problems with your stride. Metatarsal pads fit under the balls of the feet and decrease the pressure on the metatarsal bones. Heel cups help relieve heel pain by raising the heel slightly and providing extra cushioning. It is often advisable to start with an over-the-counter solution that matches the problem you are having with your feet. If the pain continues, a visit to the podiatrist for a customized solution can be the next step.

Most people experience pain on the heel when they wake up in the morning and begin to walk. There is less pain and stiffness after a while; however, the pain may increase during the day. The pain can occur when you stand or sit for a long time too. The illness is caused when there is strain on the ligament that provides support to the arch. Tiny ligament tears are caused when there are repeated strains resulting in swelling and pain. Continued stretching of the plantar fascia can result in heel spur which is a bone-like development on the heel. Flat feet or high arches can be a cause.

Wide sole- many shoes, especially athletic shoes and some flats and sandals, will have an hour glass shape to them in which the sole will narrow along the sides at the middle of the foot. No human generally has a foot this shape, especially those with flat grow taller feet, and support along the side of the foot will be lost if a shoe with this shape is worn. Look for a shoe that has a wider sole by looking at the bottom of the shoe. If it narrows in the middle, then it may not be suitable for someone with flat feet.

Stretching the calf muscles is an important part to reducing plantar fascia tension. The calf muscles, including the gastroc and soleus, attach to the back of the heel. Tension from these muscles pulls back on the heel, causing tension on the plantar fascia. A great way to stretch the calf the first thing in the morning, before you take your first steps, is to hook a towel on the ball of your foot and while keeping the knee straight pull back on the towel. Hold the stretch for a minimum of 30 seconds and repeat a few times.

By using this type of material, the weight of the body is resisted and the insert will retain its stiffness, and therefore it's ability to alter the foot structure. Comfort is maintained despite its hardness because the insert is an exact match to the individual foot. Plastizote coverings are added to the inserts to reduce pressure and friction even further. They are commonly used in many individuals with and without diabetes to support excessive foot flattening, reduce arch ligament injury (plantar fasciitis), and treat serious foot tendonitis and spraining. For diabetics with significant foot structural abnormalities, prescription orthotics are the preferred way of protecting the foot.

If you have shoe insoles, you probably have figured out that you need to replace them after some time. Replacing your orthotics is important for optimum comfort and protection. There are different indications that will tell you when you have to replace your orthotic insoles or inserts. One is when they don’t fit properly. Insoles that don’t fit well are inefficient and can cause discomfort. If your orthotics are causing you discomfort, you have to return them. If they are already old, they are probably worn out. See if the plastic shell has shown deterioration.
