Why Do People Wear Custom Arch Supports?

Custom arch supports may be a great solution if you are experiencing any of the following problems:

  • Plantar Fasciitis, characterised by pain in the arch and the heel
  • Tendonitis, including Achilles tendonitis
  • Shin splints
  • Pain in the lower back
  • Pain in the knees
  • A difference in leg length
  • Fallen arches, or flat feet
  • Hammertoes

Custom arch supports can help with any condition in which the foot has become misaligned, or excessive pressure is being placed in certain areas. By providing a well cushioned yet firm insole that is fitted precisely to the foot, custom arch supports redistribute the weight, relieve pressure and help to align the foot correctly.

When Should Arch Supports Be Worn?

Ideally, you should build up to wearing your arch supports for longer periods, so that your feet get used to them gradually. You may need to adapt your approach to ensure that all of your footwear works well for your feet. If you have had custom arch supports made for the shoes you wear for work, for example, it is important to consider other footwear, such as your training shoes, and find out if you could benefit from using your custom arch supports in these as well. Exercising can put great strain on the feet so it is very important to take care of your feet while you are working out.
