Foot supports are prescription medical devices used to wear inside the shoes to correct biomechanical foot issues, including standing, walking, or running. They also help reduce foot pain caused by medical conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, bursitis, and plantar fasciitis.

Foot supports also provide cushioning, preventing foot fatigue when you have to be on your feet for hours or when you need to walk or run on uneven surfaces. It is worth noting that good support and cushioning are vital in preventing heel pain. Foot supports are also beneficial for many athletes who look to improve their performance. They can help absorb shock, reduce fatigue, and improve comfort; most importantly, they can significantly reduce the risk of injury in athletes, especially in runners.

Commonly, two types of foot supports are worn; i.e. rigid foot support and soft foot support. Rigid foot supports, or orthotics are made from carbon fibre or plastic materials. They are the best option for walking shoes or dress shoes with low heels and closed toes.

They are helpful for foot aches, sprains, and pain in the lower back, thighs, and leg. Soft foot supports are designed with gentle compressions, which provide cushioning and comfort from conditions such as diabetic foot ulcers and plantar fasciitis.

Depending on your condition, if you neglect to wear foot supports as prescribed, you may worsen any injury to your tendons and muscles. For some conditions, such as flat feet, you need to wear them all time; however, sometimes you are recommended to wear them only during certain activities.

Make sure that you wear them as advised by your GP or trainers. You should wash foot supports by hand with a mixture of warm water and detergent to remove any odours and stains. If you need to wear them all day long, make sure you have an extra pair so that you can alternate.

Wearing foot supports can help you support or protect your feet whilst doing several physical activities. They can also help relieve pain and other symptoms causing foot injuries.
