What Do Shoe Modifications Do To Foot Pain?
If you are lucky, your foot problems can be helped with simple foot aids. For example, if you are suffering from pain due to plantar fasciitis, you may be able to relieve your pain by padding the ball of your foot. However, if you have a longstanding foot problem, a simple foot aid may not help. Luckily, shoe modifications can be done to improve a shoe for you before you even step into them. Here is more information about shoe modifications and how they help with foot pain.
How Can I Modify My Shoe?
If you suffer from constant foot pain, you need a shoe modification. Shoe modifications can help different areas of your foot. For example, if you suffer from pain in the ball of your foot due to metatarsal pain, eventual loss of fat pads on the balls of your feet, or plantar fasciitis, you would benefit from padding along with the ball of your foot. If you have pain in your arches, you may want to think about additional padding in your insoles to help.
You can also get shoe modifications if you have injuries to your feet. For example, you may suffer from digit removal of your toes, and you need extra support. You could also benefit from shoe modifications if you have sensitive, bony areas of your foot that need additional padding. With shoe modifications, you may be able to return to all of those activities you love without foot pain. If you aren't sure what you need, we can help. Why not come in for a consultation?
