Do I need Arch Supports

Do I need Arch Supports?*

Arch Supports are not just for arch pain. If you have toe, heel, ankle, shin, knee, or back pain arch supports may be able to relieve your pain by correcting alignment. Often when the arch of your foot is not supported correctly the rest of your foot alignment is disturbed, affecting the alignment in the rest of your body.

*Please note that these are only common causes. Arch supports can only provide pain relief for arch related problems. We do not claim that arch supports cure any condition. The foot has very complex anatomy so there can be many different reasons to explain what is causing your feet to hurt, and some problems can cause more to arise. For this reason, you should always consult a doctor for a correct diagnosis or recommendation for insoles, especially if your pain is severe, worsens, or persists, even with the aid of insoles.
