Could Custom Inserts Help With Foot Or Heel Pain?

2 min read

Have you experienced foot or heel pain? Because you walk around on your feet all day, it’s very difficult to ignore heel or foot pain, and these can be extremely frustrating and even debilitating. However, there could be a very simple solution, in the form of custom inserts.

Custom inserts are designed to relieve pain or areas of pressure in the foot, and to ensure a better alignment that helps to support your foot, and your legs, hips and back, more effectively. Custom-made inserts are specifically made to fit your feet, because every foot is unique and will benefit from slightly different cushioning or support.

What Can Custom Inserts Do For You?

1. Plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is usually characterized by a severe heel pain, which occurs when the plantar fascia ligament, which connects the toes to the heel, becomes torn or inflamed. This can require long periods of rest and specific gentle exercises to rehabilitate, but custom inserts can be extremely useful in relieving the pain and supporting the foot as it heels.

2. Achilles tendinitis. The tendons of the feet play a very important role in keeping you mobile, and if tendons become inflamed or damaged, great discomfort and pain in the foot can result. Custom inserts can help to redistribute weight and offer support where it is needed most, helping to heal an existing problem or prevent difficulties from occurring in the future.

3. Heel spurs. Heel spurs are protruding areas of bony growth on the foot, which are sometimes described as calcium deposits. These can be very painful and uncomfortable, and it can be difficult to find shoes that can accommodate the condition. A specialist shoe store, such as Foot Solutions, can allow you to see the difference that custom inserts could make, and find shoes that make your feet feel great.

4. Flat feet. If flat feet is a condition that you are born with, it is likely that it will not cause you pain. However, if you suffer from fallen arches, where the arches of the feet collapse, sometimes due to obesity or poor footwear, you are likely to experience pain in the feet. Custom inserts can be an excellent option here, fitting the profile of your foot precisely, and supporting the foot in all the right places.
