Whatis an Orthotic (commonly called ArchSupports)?

Anorthotic is an insert, either soft orfirm, that is placed inside a shoe. Itis classified aseither custom or over-the-counter. Custom orthotics should be made by apodiatrist or a physical therapist whohas experience treating foot and ankledisorders. The bestover-the-counter orthotics are availableat comfort shoe stores, fromchiropractors and podiatrists and bettershoe repairs. Custom orthoticsand arch supports can be expensive ($400 or more) andtherefore you should not spend more than$60 on an over-the-counter orthotic. Pedag's most expensive orthotic item (PointPlusfor heel spur relief) costs lessthan $36.00 and our most popular itemsVivaandHoliday(Viva Mini) cost less than $30.00!

Howdo orthotics or arch supports work?

Hundreds ofscientific studies have been done todetermine how orthotics andarch supports work. Orthotics perform three major functions:

First,orthotics help disperse forcesacross your foot so one specificarea of the foot is not gettingoverloaded.
Second,orthotics help slow down pathologicmotion, such as over pronation orover supination.
Third,orthotics improve your foot'sawareness of its position inrelation to the ground. Thisis a subconscious, neurologicalawareness, which is probably whyorthotics feel good when you putthem in your shoes.

DoI need a custom orthotic or arch support?

Althoughover-the-counter orthotics and archsupports are effective but customorthotics work better for serious footdeformities and other serious conditions ; therefore,custom orthotics are used whenover-the-counter orthotics fail torelieve symptoms.If you wouldlike to try an "over the counter"orthotic before investing in a customorthotic please see our list ofsuggested Pedag items for various commonfoot conditions. Custom orthoticsare usually made out of highly durablematerials that last longer and are moreexpensive. When a custom orthotic isnecessary, it is crucial that apodiatrist is involved, as the wrongtype of orthotic can actually makepeople feel worse or even cause adifferent problem.

Howlong do orthotics and arch supports last?

This depends on thetype of activity. The more running onedoes, the quicker the orthotic will wearout. Over-the-counter orthoticsand arch supports typically last about one year. Customorthotics usually last three to fiveyears sometimes longer. With children,replace orthotics every one to two shoesizes, depending on comfort.

The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) has more information about Orthotics that help explain the types and purpose of orthotic foot supports. Pedag is proud of the fact that 9 of our best selling orthotic foot supports have been awarded the APMA Seal of Acceptence for promoting foot health.

Caution: Severe pain in thefoot and ankle should be diagnosed andidentified by a podiatrist ororthopedist or other foot specialist. Once the condition is identifiedcorrectly, treatment options can bediscussed with your doctor. Evensevere foot pain can be eliminated withthe correct medical intervention, mosttimes without surgery. Use ourwebsite's list offoot conditions to start your own research intoyour condition.
