Healthy Feet

If you are not sure in any instance, it is important to know how to maintain the health of your entire body. Sole to Soul Footwear is proud to present to you the foot health-related information to help you become more familiar with your feet and body:

 

Achilles Tendinitis

Orthotic devices are used to accommodate biomechanical abnormalities, while heel lifts may be recommended on a temporary basis to elevate the heel and reduce stress on the Achilles tendon.

 

Bunions/Bunionettes

Shoes with a special rocker sole can help to alleviate the pain of a bunion. It’s also imperative you wear shoes that fit properly.

 

Corns & Calluses

The best way to avoid corns and calluses is to wear proper-fitting shoes and socks.

 

Diabetic Feet

Rocker soles or removable insoles can help reduce pressure in the ball of your foot, which can be an area that is susceptible to pressure sores and ulcers for a diabetic.

 

Foot Arthritis

Orthotics can be used to help protect painful, swollen joints and to allow the joints to work in a more natural way.

 

Haglund’s Deformity

Wearing proper-fitting shoes and socks can reduce the likelihood of Haglund’s Deformity from occurring.

 

Hallux Rigidus/Limitus

Wearing proper-fitting shoes and socks can reduce the likelihood of the condition known as Hallux Rigidus/Limitus (stiff big toe joint).

 

Hammer/Claw/Mallet Toes

Shoes need to be deep or have a soft top to accommodate bent toes. Over-the-counter pads may also help treat this condition.

 

Heel Spurs

The sponge-like material found under the heel of most orthotics can help relieve the pressure and pain associated with heel spurs.

 

Ingrown Toenails

Proper-fitting shoes can greatly reduce your likelihood of developing painful ingrown toenails.

 

Metatarsalgia

Orthotics designed to relieve ball-of-foot pain usually feature a metatarsal pad. The orthotic is constructed with the pad placed behind the ball-of-the-foot to help relieve pressure and redistribute weight from the painful area to more tolerant areas.

 

Morton’s Neuroma

Proper-fitting shoes can help you reduce the chance of developing Morton’s Neuroma.

 

Plantar Fasciitis

An orthotic that provides cushioning and stability while being a good shock-absorbing shoe can help with unusually high arches. Other common treatments include plantar fasciitis night splints and shoes with strong heel counters to help control the amount of pronation and provide good cushioning to the foot.

 

Posterior Tibialis Tendinitis

Orthotics and shoe insoles can help reduce your chances of developing posterior tibialis tendinitis.

 

Stress Fractures

Proper-fitting shoes can help decrease your likelihood of forming a stress fracture from repetitive high-impact activities.
