Considering buying orthotic insoles to relieve your foot or heel pain? If you haven’t decided yet, we have you covered with expert advice from an Orthopedic Surgeon to discuss the benefits of getting the right insoles for prevention, cure, and recovery.
Dr. Michael Gonzales is an Orthopedic Surgeon who specializes in Orthopedics and Traumatology, with a subspecialty in Foot and Ankle Injuries and Surgeries. With his expertise and knowledge, we have the following answers regarding feet-related topics and orthotic insoles.
According to Dr. Gonzales, the purpose of wearing orthotic insoles is to help retain our feet’s natural state and help support our body and its movements. Often our inactive lifestyle and wearing ill-fitted footwear cause our feet and ankles to get weaker – this is why wearing orthotic insoles will help support our feet while strengthening those muscles that have weakened or those ligaments that have loosened or tightened.
The most common benefit of wearing orthotic insoles according to Dr. Gonzales is Pain Relief. Pain relief from years of your feet being in a wrong position, and from years of your feet being unable to move naturally. So wearing orthotic insoles can help your feet get back to their natural shape and function.
One of the misconceptions of people wearing insoles according to Dr. Gonzales is that it is just for people with foot problems. But in fact, Insoles are for everyone. People can benefit from wearing insoles if they are used properly, perfectly fitted for your feet, and paired with proper exercise to maintain the shape of your feet.
But also the people that would benefit the most from wearing insoles are the elderly, people who have flat feet, people experiencing plantar fasciitis, and people who are recovering from foot and ankle injury.
With Dr. Gonzales’s professional advice, he said that the perfect orthotic insoles are the ones that are customized since every foot is different for every person. The right insoles are supposed to be pain-free and make you feel comfortable as you pair them with the right fitting shoe to give you the overall support in your body and psyche.
And that’s it! With orthopedist knowledge, we hope that you decide to get Customized Orthotic Insoles that are shaped according to the needs, strength, and weakness of your feet, and according to your size to ensure maximum comfort and quality of life in comparison with off-the-shelves shoe inserts.
