Find Relief from Arch Pain with Orthotics
Dealing with arch pain can be challenging, but orthotics can provide a solution. Medical-grade orthotics for arch pain are designed to provide relief and support to the foot’s movements. They feature design elements such as a rearfoot wedge that resist overpronation and assist supination, which can help reduce strain on muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These designs are found in custom-made orthotics prescribed by Podiatrist’s and also the MODEL P PAIN Orthotic.
Common Contributors to Arch Pain
Various factors can contribute to arch pain, including high-impact activities, over-exercise, aging, weight gain, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, and high arches. It is important to wear the most supportive footwear for a given activity. For example it would be unwise to wear a dress shoe cross country walking. By identifying the underlying cause of your arch pain, you can find the right orthotics to provide effective relief.
Correct Pronation and Supination with Orthotics
Addressing your foot’s pronation and supination can be crucial in reducing arch pain. When these movements cause too much strain on your foot and leg tissues, injury and pain can result. Orthotics for arch pain can help support the foot, decrease the load during pronation, and stabilize the foot during supination, helping to alleviate discomfort and reduce the risk of injury. This is achieved by using orthotics that have specific design features built into them that resist pronation and assist supination like the MODEL P Orthotic.
