Managing Arthritic Foot Pain with Orthopedic Insoles
How does arthritis affect your joints?
There are many different forms of arthritic pain stemming from multiple different conditions. Two of the most common are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition in which the body's immune system begins to attack the joints, causing the tissue that lines the joints to thicken. Osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage in your joints has gradually worn away, and is especially common in your hands, knees, hips and spine. Whatever the source of arthritic pain, it can have a serious negative affect on quality of life, especially when it hinders mobility.
Managing arthritis with supportive insoles.
Orthopedic insoles help to evenly distribute weight to remove excess pressure from sensitive parts of the feet. They can also provide cushioning and support to reduce stress on the feet and their many joints. Beyond that, insoles with proper arch support can help correct gait abnormalities and ensure neutral alignment to reduce stress on the knees, hips and back. This can offer particular relief to those suffering from osteoarthritis. Custom moldable orthotic insoles are a cost-effective solution designed to improve alignment and provide the mechanics you need to stay on your feet.
