Now you may find yourself wondering what some of these modifications imply? For example, if you are unaware of what a “rocker” sole implies, not to worry, for we are here to help. A Rocker sole is made to help reduce the pressure under the ball of the foot. The typical rocker style shoe has a thicker sole as well as a rounded heal. A few benefits of these modifications include:

  • reducing peak plantar pressures in the medial forefoot
  • helps treat hallux limitus
  • rocker shoes can also be used to help treat midfoot or ankle arthritis
