Since feet are the major weight-bearing part of the body, foot pain is common. In fact, half of the Americans polled by the American Podiatric Medical Association had missed a day of work because of foot problems. The foot contains 26 bones and many small structures that support and balance the weight of the entire body. Walking puts up to 1.5 times one's body weight on the foot, and humans walk an average of 1,000 miles per year.
Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored. Problems can affect the functioning of other parts of the body, including the hips, knees, and back. Pedorthists, osteopaths, podiatrists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and sports medicine practitioners often recommend custom foot orthotics (specially-made shoe inserts) as part of a treatment regimen. The benefits of foot orthotics include:
- Help reduce symptoms of foot conditions
- Provide support and accommodate foot deformities
- Offer better foot positioning
- Relieve pressure on specific areas of the foot
- Improve the overall biomechanical function of your hips, legs, ankles, and feet
