What do your feet go through every day? Think about all the walking and standing you do. Every time you stand up, sit down or bend over you are asking your feet to provide stability, balance and momentum. Do you play sport? Almost every sport asks its competitors to place pressure on their feet through running, jumping, pivoting or twisting. Have you ever taken your shoes off at the end of a long day and felt a familiar ache or fatigue? Imagine how much work your feet are asked to do over a lifetime of movement. You may think they are fine now, but how do you think they will perform in 10 years’ time? How about 20, 30 or even 40 years from now? Will your foot health bounce back from the pressure you’ve placed them under? Like daily flossing, there are ways you can care for your foot health now so that they are in good condition for years to come.
Conditions such as arthritis, obesity, older age and excessive activity can all strain the feet over time. Some of these conditions affect foot health more than others but all do impact them in various ways. Each person will be affected differently, depending on the age of onset, if the situation can be reversed or mediated, and if any pain is interfering with daily life.
If people are suffering from pain while walking in daily life, they may instinctively try to adjust their gait to avoid putting pressure on sore points. Persistent adaptations like this can cause secondary alignment issues in the knees, hips and lower back. Over time the joints can suffer greatly causing further discomfort and reduced mobility.
Using high quality insoles can make a significant improvement on comfort levels or quality of gait for people affected by various health conditions mentioned above. There are many benefits that can be gained by wearing insoles every day, even if you have no presenting symptoms or pain right now. Quality insoles provide amazing levels of cushioning and comfort which helps to reduce muscle fatigue. They can help to reduce soreness and pressure points while gently correcting gait. This has a twofold benefit: the positioning of the feet correctly will reduce the likelihood of foot issues developing and will encourage mobility in people with nascent foot health concerns. This should contribute to maintenance of good health overall.
