Are you flat footed? Orthotics can help stretch the soles and tendons of your feet and ease any pain or discomfort you may feel. These custom inserts are placed on the bottom of your shoe providing support and distributing pressure along the joints. They help create an arch in the bottom of your foot. This in turn helps to ease pain in the soles and tendons of your feet.
More importantly, (aside from inserts) you need to wear supportive and comfortable shoes. Your foot and ankle should be supported without the shoe being too large or too small.
