With all the brands of insoles on the market, it helps if you understand the main mission of each of the orthotic companies. Orthaheel is a brand name but its also descriptive of the orthopedic design of these orthotic insoles, including on the heel where theres extra padding for increased shock absorption. They also have a deep heel cup.
These Orthaheel Insoles have been clinically proven to keep your foot aligned so that excessive pronation and supination doesn't occur. They're made with a hardened plastic shell to fulfill that function. Excessive pronation of the foot leads to flat feet, plantar fasciitis, and bunions.
This pair of Orthaheel insoles have a Tri-Planer Control Arch support along with a 4-degree heel wedge that stabilizes your foot in a natural positioning you wouldn't have without it. When your feet are aligned properly, you feel as if you have extra energy because all the energy that went towards trying to maintain your foot stability is saved.
The Orthaheel Active Orthotic Insoles are accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association. They wouldnt be approved if they werent effective for reducing pain in the foot, heel, ankle, knee, leg, hip or back. You can add them to work boots, casual shoes, and athletic shoes, plus they are trimmable.
These Orthaheel insoles have the hallmark characteristic of the Orthaheel brand with their Tri-Planar Motion Control Arch support with deep heel cup and arch support. These are also accepted by the American Podiatric Medical Association, so you can expect relief of pain in the foot and heel all the way up to your low back. The bones of the body are all connected so if the ones in your feet are out of alignment, you can expect that misalignment to travel upwards to the other parts of the skeleton.
These are full length insoles will fit in casual shoes, athletic shoes and work boots. Your feet are supported in a natural (neutral) position. The Orthaheel insoles are made of lightweight medium density EVA foam so your feet can be supported and comfortable. These are trimmable as well. The Reliefs are also available in a 3/4 Length.
Now that you know what the Orthaheel Company stands for, think about all those features built into an Orthotic and then imagine how much better they would feel if there were gel heel inserts on them. So then youd have a deep heel cup, a rear foot wedge along with a gel heel pad. If you had any type of heel pain such as from Achilles tendonitis, heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, or athletes foot, then having a gel heel pad will make your heel feel better and more comfortable with pain relief.
Orthaheel Orthotics are perfect for those whose feet turn inward when they walk. They're great for those who have pes planus, flat feet because in pes planus, the foot turns inward (excessive pronation) as a person walks. By correcting this, you stop symptoms at their root cause. And thats what it takes to get better and stay healthy.
