Pronation is when the foot rolls inward while walking or running. While a certain amount of pronation is normal for a healthy gait, overpronation can cause ``flat feet,`` where the arch is not properly supported.
Supination is when the foot rolls outward while walking or running. Some supination is normal, but too much puts pressure on the outer edge of the foot, causing pain.
The foot arch is designed to support the foot and absorb shock. An arch that is too high or too low can stress the foot and cause pain.
Disorders such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles heel pain, toe pain, corns, bunions, knee and hip pain that stem from foot disorders can make walking and running extremely painful.
Painful feet can negatively affect athletic performance, and pushing through the pain can compound injuries. Custom insoles enhance comfort, provide support and improve performance.
Custom insoles can be created for athletic, dress, and casual shoes to provide cushiony comfort during any activity, day or night.
Ideal for patients with sensitive skin and ulceration due to diabetes or lack of sensation in the extremities of the foot.
