Your feet are the foundation of your entire body, so it’s important to keep them comfortable and supported. That’s where shoe inserts and insoles come in! Shoe inserts and insoles can provide support for your feet and help relieve pain in the feet, ankles, legs, knees, hips, and back.
There are two main types of shoe inserts and insoles: over-the-counter (OTC) and custom-made. OTC shoe inserts and insoles are typically made from foam or gel and can be found at most drugstores or sporting goods stores. Custom-made shoe inserts and insoles are made from a mold of your foot, so they fit your foot perfectly. At Colony Ortho RX, we offer both OTC and custom-made shoe inserts and insoles.
Shoe inserts and insoles work by providing support for the foot and distributing weight evenly throughout the foot. This helps to reduce pressure on the joints and muscles in the feet, ankles, legs, knees, hips, and back. Shoe inserts and insoles can also help to improve balance and alignment.
There are many different types of shoe inserts and insoles available on the market today. Some common types include arch supports, heel cups, metatarsal pads, toe spacers, and orthotics. Arch supports provide support for the arch of the foot to help reduce pain in the arch area.
