Five Signs You Need Orthotics

You Stand for More than Five Hours a Day

Standing on your feet for many hours can cause plantar fasciitis, an overuse injury to the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a ligament that extends from your heel to your toes on the base of your foot. Orthotics can help relieve the stress you place on it from standing all day.

Your Shoes Are Worn Out

Take a look at the tread on your shoes. However, while many of our soles are worn down, wearing the tread of your shoes out on one side more than the other can be a sign that your foot is rolling inward (also called pronating) or turning outward (also called supinating.) Orthotics can help foot pronation or supination.

You Have No Arch or a High Arch in Your Foot

If you have very high or low arches, regular shoes may not provide your feet the support they need. Orthotics can help provide the support that your regular shoes don’t.

You Have Severe Pain in Your Foot or Heel

While this may sound obvious, many people avoid foot pain. Instead, they blame the pain on wearing high heels or uncomfortable shoes. Foot or heel pain, especially in the morning, is a common sign of plantar fasciitis.

You Just Had an Injury on a Lower Limb

If you recently suffered an injury to your hip, knee, leg or ankle, it could be affecting the pressure you put on your feet. As a result, this affects the way you walk. Orthotics may be able to help correct your walk.
