PAIN

What kind of pain?

We’re mainly talking foot pain caused by orthopedic and diabetic conditions

However, Podiapro’s custom orthotic insoles and footwear treat not only foot pain, but also ankle pain, knee pain, low back pain and neck pain that are caused by poor foot posture, mechanics and alignment. The well-being of your feet is of utmost importance for the entire body. If your feet have poor posture and mechanics, there’s a cascading effect causing misalignment and pain in the entire body.

And that’s where we come in. Whatever be the nature of your foot pain or your pathology, we have a custom designed solution for you. 

How insoles work?

What causes pain?

Flat foot and foot over pronation are the most common causes of foot, ankle and knee pain. If your feet pronate excessively, it is probably because of having flat feet (no arches) or weak arches which collapse when you are on your feet causing your feet to flatten and roll inwards under the ankle joint. This causes misalignment between the foot, ankle and knee, causing pain.

Custom insoles for flat foot and over pronation

How insoles relieve pain?

Orthotic insoles work by correcting your foot posture and foot bio-mechanics. Used as shoe inserts or foot-beds on sandals, our insoles bring about a correction to the foot gait pattern. Abnormal foot movements like over pronation (inward roll) or over supination (outward roll) are controlled thus restoring foot-ankle-knee alignment bringing about relief from pain.

Footwear or Insoles?

You might have this question – Do I need to get just insoles or just shoes or both? Read on ..

Custom footwear or insoles

Custom Insoles in your footwear are foot-beds your feet rest against. Corrections that your feet need are effected on the underside of your feet (on your soles, also called as the plantar surface) by your insoles. So your insoles are where all the magic happens. Our insoles fit most regular shoes and most of the time, insoles are all you need for most common cases of foot pain. They are as good as the soul of your footwear.

You would need custom footwear if your feet are wide, or of uneven lengths, or have high arches and your existing shoes are not able to accommodate insoles as there isn’t enough depth. Or you may want to use insoles with sandals or open footwear. Custom footwear can also help when you need specific protective or offloading footwear for diabetic feet.

Custom or off-the-shelf insoles?

When to use Off-the-shelf-insoles?

It’s a myth that only custom insoles are able to bring about pain relief. Meticulously designed off-the-shelf insoles (pre-fabricated and ready-to-use) are effective in pain relief as well. You could get pre-fabricated insoles if: 

  • Your pain isn’t severe or not too prolonged; it is restricted to your feet and hasn’t radiated to your knees
  • You just want comfort or generic arch support
  • You have no pain and want insoles only for protection from injuries
  • You want your product to be refundable
  • You want to spend lesser money than what you would on a pair of custom inserts

 

At Podiapro, we have a range of ready to use insoles which can be ordered from our online store and have a money back guarantee. 

When to use Custom Insoles?

Custom insoles are tailor made to suit your specific needs, based on your bio-mechanical assessment. So they offer more precise support, correction and offloading. They are recommended when:

  • You have moderate to severe pain, or when pain has started radiating from your feet to your knees or lower back 
  • When you have diabetic sores, ulcers or peripheral foot neuropathy
  • The patient is a senior citizen or has sensitive feet as their feet cannot adapt quickly
  • You have already used pre-fabricated insoles and haven’t got pain relief
  • Custom insoles can be made with flexible support to avoid pain while your foot adapts and then be reinforced and made more rigid after 2 to 3 weeks of usage so that full correction is safely effected onto the feet without causing pain or discomfort. Lastly, custom insoles can be modified and adjusted if the objective isn’t achieved. 

At Podiapro, we specialize in custom insoles, it’s our forte. It has a huge advantage in that they can be modified or adjusted as and when needed if the objective isn’t achieved. It also means that for those who have sensitive feet or severe pain, the insoles can be designed to be more flexible at the start so that the feet easily adapt to these new shoe inserts. Once the feet have adapted over 2 to 3 weeks, the insoles can be reinforced to be made more supportive or rigid as needed. This way, complete correction can be effected onto your feet in 2 phases so that your feet adapt to them seamlessly without causing pain or discomfort.
