The shoes you purchase already come with insoles, but they might not be enough to support your foot health. Your podiatrist may recommend that you use over-the-counter (OTC) or custom orthotic inserts. Orthotics give your feet superior cushioning and support exactly where you need it most, such as under a high foot arch or a painful heel. Orthotics are also a good choice for people who are prone to plantar fasciitis.
Watch this featured video for an in-depth look at custom orthotics. It explains that orthotics can help relieve painful symptoms that affect your feet, knees, hips, and back. They’re also a good choice for patients with foot arthritis and neuromas.
