Foot Facts -- Orthotic Footbeds


Foot pain is not normal.

Left unattended foot problems can affect other parts of your body and may create hip pain, knee pain, or back pain. If you’ve ever experienced even minor foot pain you know how debilitating the pain can be. More severe forms of foot ailments include Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain, arch pain) and Metatarsalgia (ball-of-foot pain).

With proper suppport your hip, knee and ankle are properly aligned. Without proper medial arch support the foot flattens and the ankle rolls. The knee turns in and the hip drops and rotates. As a result you could experience Plantar Fasciitis pain, knee pain, hip and/or sciatic pain.

The good news is that we can help. One way to combat foot-related problems is through the use of footwear with orthotic footbeds. Footwear without proper arch support places undo stress on the three primary arches of the foot. High heel shoes place stress on the ball of the foot (metatarsal arch). Wearing footwear with an orthotic footbed properly supports the foot and relieves stress.
