Healthy feet, healthy body
What part of your body suffers the most physical stress daily? If you guessed your feet, you're right. Most foot pain is the result of faulty alignment and function of bones and muscles of your feet. These muscles exert their effect on the knees, hips, lower back, all the bones holding your body upright. Whether you are walking a mile, standing on your feet all day or playing a leisurely game of golf, your feet, knees and hips are essential parts of your equipment.
If your feet hurt, have discomfort in the knees or hips, custom insoles might be your secret weapon to feeling better.
Foot and ankle positioning play a key role in knee, hip and spinal health. Walking with the ankle in the neutral position means that the arch of the foot is the shock absorber, as it should be. However, when the ankles are turned in or out, the foot cannot properly plant with the ankle in that neutral position. When the ankle is not in that neutral position the shock absorber becomes the knee, the hip or the lower back. Over time this is a prescription for knee or hip replacement.
When Be Well Western Carolina makes your custom insoles we first and foremost place your ankle in the proper neutral position. Once this is done we mold the insole to the curvatures of your foot.
Conditions managed by custom insoles include:
Bring in your shoes and we will look at your wear pattern to determine of custom insoles can help you.
