KNEE PAIN

HIP PAIN

BACK PAIN

Has it ever occurred to you that these and other issues could be caused by a problem in your feet?

Could The Problem Be Your Feet?

Because we walk on hard, unyielding surfaces such as concrete, our feet are forced to pronate excessively.

This can lead to dropped arches, disrupted knee function and hip alignment, and increased pressure on the lower back.

Most of the time, people don’t attribute their knee, hip, back and shoulder pain to their feet, especially since the feet are often pain-free.

But spotting and treating the root cause of this pain- which may be in the feet- can prevent degeneration in the lower back, hips, and knees- and if treated early enough and maintained, it can even mean avoiding the need for surgery later in life.

Can Fallen Arches Be Treated?

Unfortunately, there is no cure, but there are certainly ways to support your arches and minimize the damage caused to your body.

Supportive shoes in the correct size and width are essential. Wearing flat shoes such as flip-flops or ballet pumps is a definite no, as these offer no support at all to the feet. This being said, shoes do not prevent arch collapse, so more is needed.

Insoles with arch supports are the best way to support the foot.

Here at The Comfoot Zone we stock a range of Sidas Supportive Insoles, they are moveable between shoes and offer a basic arch support.

Custom Made Orthotics

Feet are as individual as fingerprints, and the only way to fully correct the position of your foot is to have orthotic insoles custom-made. Orthotics should be flexible and contain shock absorbers.

Mr. Terry Hallett has been a Physiotherapist for over eighteen years, and specializes in Lower-Limb Biomechanics.

Here at The Comfoot Zone, he uses Sidas technology to make bespoke custom-made orthotics. They are flexible, but also durable, and offer maximum shock absorption.

Here’s an idea of how we make our custom orthotics…

(Note: The video gives you an idea of how they’re made, but our equipment is slightly different to what’s used.)
