Who needs off the shelf or over the counter orthotics

Docpods Support - Tuesday, July 04, 2017

Over the counter orthotics are suitable for mild to moderate foot deformity such as over pronation or painful conditions such as heel pain. Over the counter orthotics help to support but not correct the deformity in the foot. They help to support the arches of the foot which will unload the foot and rest the muscles in the foot, and also, they help to add some softness and cushioning to the foot which can relieve the pressure and pain underneath the high impact areas of the foot such as the forefoot and the heel.

Fitting an over the counter or off the shelf orthotic insole into the shoe is also very important. It is essential that you get the correct sizing and that the orthotic fits perfectly inside your shoe or it will not function as it is designed to. Over the counter orthotics also work best in conjunction with a well fitted shoe that’s correctly sized and appropriate for the activity.
