A well made insole will conform to your foot, feel comfortable,
alleviate pain and most importantly fit in your shoe. Unfortunately insoles with poor design features will have the opposite effect, leaving the user in pain and frustrated.

The term Orthoses (insoles) derives from the greek word to “straighten”. There are a bewildering array of devices, designed to support the feet, ranging from over the counter insoles to medical grade custom insoles, each utilising different materials, shapes and design features.

Our posture and gait are determined by a variety of factors, such as age, gender, weight, ethnicity, occupation, lifestyle, disease and footwear. These factors then determine the alignment of joints when standing, walking or running. If the joints are misaligned, small subtle changes occur over time leading to joint damage and pain.

An insole will alleviate this misalignment by helping to support the
foot into a correctly aligned position, as well as providing cushioning to sensitive joints.

Any insole will have an effect on gait and posture. The difference lies in how much of an effect, and whether it is beneficial, or in some cases detrimental.

The difference between an over the counter insole to a custom insole is akin to buying an off the rack wedding dress versus a tailor made wedding dress. Both perform the same function, but comfort, design and overall satisfaction is determined by the skill of the person involved in its creation.

With that in mind, the overall benefit to your foot by the insole you
use will be determined largely by who has prescribed it. Due to the training they receive, Podiatrists are in a unique position to not only assess your gait, but also to determine and create the correct insole for your needs, whether for a child, a working adult or an athlete. No other healthcare profession has this unique combination of skills.

A Podiatrist can assess whether you need an insole or not, and if so, incorporate the requisite features that are appropriate to your needs.
