Common Foot Issues
Our arch supports help with the following conditions that many times are a result of standing or working
on hard surfaces for a long period of time. Our arch supports are designed to be worn in any shoe and
put your feet, knees and entire alignment into an ideal position.
Plantar fasciitis - (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).
Bunion - A painful bony bump that develops on the inside of the foot at the big toe joint. Bunions are often referred to as hallux valgus. Bunions develop slowly. Pressure on the big toe joint causes the big toe to lean toward the second toe.
Neuroma - A painful condition, also referred to as a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the third and fourth toes. It brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot.
Hammer Toe - The most common cause of hammer toe is wearing short, narrow shoes that are too tight. This causes the toe to bend upward. Muscles and tendons in the toe tighten and become shorter. This makes the toe stay in the bent position.
Supination of the foot occurs when your weight rolls onto the outer edges of your feet. Another name for supination is underpronation. In a normal stride, your foot should roll inward a bit (pronate) so that your weight is on the ball of your foot. ... Excessive supination of your feet can lead to: back and hip pain.
