 Signs That You Need Orthotics in Your Life

Anyone can benefit from a pair of functional orthotics, from the custom-made ones to the ones you can buy at any drug store. However, if you have a foot condition, then it might be inevitable that you need orthotics, and there are a couple of signs you should watch out for. If you need a good podiatrist, you should contact the best Sydney podiatry like ModPod Podiatry.

Many signs can tell you that wearing orthotics is something you need:

  1. You own worn-out shoes

Take a glance at your footwear, are you are wearing shoes that have soles more worn out on one side than the other? In this case, you are more prone to having your feet roll inwards or supinate, meaning the feet will turn outwards. Is one of your shoes more worn out than the other? Then you might have a problem with leg length discrepancy. There is a lot to be learned from your old shoes so pay attention.

  1. The wet test

Many people are not aware of this simple test that anyone can do at home. Take a piece of newspaper that is dry and place it on the ground. After soaking your feet in the water, step on the paper, up-right, and look at the footprint you left. This will tell you if you need orthotics or not!

  1. Pain in our feet

Painful feet are so standard today that most people look at it as if nothing is wrong, and this should not be like that. If you feel any kind of pain or discomfort in your feet, the best thing you can do is visit your podiatrist and see how you can relive that pain. You can also get orthotic solutions at ModPod Podiatry and ask them for help.

The repeated exposure to footwear that is not correctly fitted is able to cause permanent damage to our feet. Pointy shoes, high heels, and many other shoes can also create different conditions such as bunions. Bunions are easily recognizable, and they are more often found in women than in men, and while sometimes they are not at all painful, many times they will require surgery to ease the pain.

  1. Heel pain

This is yet another common pain that every human has felt, the pain in our heel. It can be caused by many different things, from improper exercise to footwear and so on. However, any severe pain, no matter where, is not a regular thing, which is why you will have to visit your doctor or podiatrist.

Those who are experiencing heel pain in the morning might actually be suffering from a condition called plantar fasciitis. In many cases, this situation can be treated by custom-made orthotics and can be corrected with some exercises.



  1. Injury to lower limbs

Those who have suffered an injury to their lower limbs should know how important it is to take proper care of their recovery, from head to toes. If you end up with misaligned gait, that can cause a lot of issues on your knees, hips, and ankles.

Final word

The point here is that feeling extreme pain in your feet is not something ordinary, so make sure to take proper care of your feet. If you are not sure why your feet hurt, and if the pain persists even after a day or two of resting, you should definitely schedule and go to your podiatrist, who will prescribe the right treatment or orthotics for your case.

Anyone can benefit from a pair of functional orthotics, from the custom-made ones to the ones you can buy at any drug store. However, if you have a foot condition, then it might be inevitable that you need orthotics, and there are a couple of signs you should watch out for. If you need a good podiatrist, you should contact the best Sydney podiatry like ModPod Podiatry.
