What are the best orthotics for plantar fasciitis and other foot problems?
The best orthotics for plantar fasciitis will make the foot function better AND feel better. In order to make the best orthotics for plantar fasciitis, you have to do more than what is commonly expected of a custom orthotics lab (and that term should be used loosely, as many companies who claim to make a custom orthotic’ are not truly custom). Sole Supports were designed like an engineer would design a bridge, looking at the real forces involved and how best to manage those forces that cause foot pain, heel pain, heel spurs and painful conditions like plantar fasciitis. The best orthotics for plantar fasciitis will correct the entire kinematic chain of events in the gait cycle and help the entire body function better and feel better.
Sole Supports has discovered three critical things that the best orthotic for plantar fasciitis has to have in order to be effective at relieving pain and improving function. First, they must capture the corrected position or posture of the foot: as high an arch as the foot can make with heel and ball of the foot flat on the ground. Second, the Sole Supports orthotic must make full contact with the entire foot in this position in order to have the mechanical power and efficiency to control the foot.
(See custom orthotics video below for life-like animation) Third, Sole Supports must be custom calibrated to flex and support the demands we put on our feet every day. This is where the ‘extra mile’ technology, research and manufacturing process exceeds all others to manufacture the best orthotic for plantar fasciitis. The orthotic must be rigid enough to maintain a corrected foot posture yet flexible enough to ‘give’ upon impact with a typical concrete floor. Your arch acts like a spring when walking, Sole Supports gives you that custom ‘spring’ in your step, which absorbs the adverse effects that gravity puts on to the soft tissues of the foot and arch and heel.
The majority of people’s feet will break down or flatten over time, causing fallen arches in what used to be normal feet. (This is common in women who gain a lot of weight during pregnancy). These changes are most commonly caused by sedentary lifestyles, living on concrete and as well as the inherited structure of your foot. One new treatment that has proven to be effective along with custom orthotics is laser therapy.
Best Orthotics for Plantar Fasciitis and Other Painful Foot Conditions
Some very familiar problems associated with poor foot function – bunions, plantar fasciitis, heel spur, hammertoes, metatarsalgia, morton’s neuroma, stress fracture, Achilles tendinitis or just plain achy, tired feet. The big toe joint, more than any other joint in the foot, tends to develop arthritis. You can also experience pain in your knees associated with your feet, commonly referred to as Patellar Femoral Tracking Disorder.
Do you experience more discomfort and pain with prolonged periods of time on your feet?” You don’t have to go directly to a podiatrist or other foot doctors, who may recommend foot surgery. You can now get custom orthotics (also commonly referred to as shoe inserts, custom arch supports, and custom insoles) from a chiropractor or other alternative medicine practitioner. If you’re also wondering “How much do custom orthotics cost?” or even “Are custom orthotics worth it?” you have very little to lose and a pain-free life to gain from scheduling a consultation to have a Sole Supports Certified Provider evaluate your feet.
