Q: What is customized insoles?
A: A customized insoles is a device designed to align the foot and ankle into the most anatomically efficient position. They look like insoles, but are biomechanical medical appliances that are custom made to correct your specific foot imbalance. Customized insoles work on your feet much like glasses work on your eyes – they reduce stress and strain on your body by bringing your feet back into proper alignment. The plastic body of the customized insoles helps to re-align the foot by redirecting and reducing certain motion that takes place during the gait cycle. Customized insoles fit into your shoes as comfortably as an insole – and they have the advantage of having been made from precise imprints of your feet.
Q: How can customized insoles help me?
A: Customized insoles support your foot and ankle during weight-bearing movements like walking, running, skiing and more. These custom insoles align the joints within the foot providing stability and comfort. This allows for more normalized weight distribution throughout your body, significantly reducing your pain and discomfort and helping to prevent injuries like shin splints. In addition, when one area of our body is affected, a chain reaction occurs throughout the body. So, if the foundation of your body is stabilized through correcting imbalances in your feet, you will promote overall body stability.
Q: Who would benefit from a customized insoles?
A: In my years of practice I have found many people who don’t realize that they are a candidate for customized insoles. They may have biomechanical faults or their arches may have “fallen”. This is an unfortunate result of aging for many of us where we gain weight and lose muscle tone. In many cases these people have not yet experienced any of the pain syndromes associated with “bad feet”. It’s really just a question of time. Our exam process can reveal problems before they start.
Once there is enough joint irritation and some cases degeneration the pain signals will begin. Conversely there are some people who already suffer from foot, shin, knee, hip or back pain. These people are obvious candidates for an orthotic/exam. Either way, our process will help determine what your unique needs are and a solution will be recommended.
Q: Do customized insoles require special shoes?
A: Since the customized insoles supports the foot and the shoe supports the foot and orthotic, you will find that choosing a better quality shoe will improve the effectiveness of your custom insole.
This customized insoles can be made to fit easily in most shoes; however, those with removable insoles that have good support work best. In addition, a thinner shoe insole can also be designed to fit dress shoes. One of the best shoe types to target is a comfortable shoe designed for walking – it has a round toe box, laces and a firm heel area.
Q: Why iSUN3D customized insoles?
