Mind your feet well

Imagine you have tocover an extremely long distance, five miles or even more, butwearing high heels or wing tips. That would put your feet in such an awkwardposition, a real mess, that they would probably shout out loud from pain andsuffering. One of the most prominent reasons behind this is the fact that suchshoes were not designed in such a way as to facilitate the easy roll of thefoot, starting from the heel and all the way to the person’s toe.

Flat feet

This term has beenused as a way to describe a condition in which the person in question has feet characterized by collapsed arches. Reasons regarded to be at the root of thisproblem involve either the inability of the person’s body to develop arches, ormuscles that are quite weak and thus are unable to properly maintain thearches. But flat feet as such are in most cases not painful, nor do they causethat big a discomfort. On the other hand, the ankles have the tendency to developcertain complications from turning in as a way of compensating for the loweredarch.

The solution to thisproblem comes in the form of adequate shoes, which aid the person’s ankles insupporting the body. This way the occurring or present leg pain that is mostfrequently brought into direct relation to the condition itself is relievedto a great extent. Arches play quite an importantrole. What they do is provide a sort of a system based on “springs”, which thenprovides assistance in the body moving action. In addition, it also absorbs thebody weight over any type of surface that a person in question is performing movements.

Most proper shoes

Once those shoes acquiredin the over-the-counter method fail to be appropriate in terms of providing themost proper support for the fallen arch, then the need for orthotics arises. Thisis a term used in medicine to name those specially designed and made foot accessories, which are put inside the shoe itself. Their primary purpose is to create, in anartificial manner, a curvature that approximates a natural arch. This way, the artificiallycreated arch replicates both the height and the placement of the foot arch. Whenit comes to the process of making, persons responsible for this are apodiatrist and a specialist who designs a custom support in threedifferent varieties, i.e. rigid, semi-rigid and soft arch.
