Very few people actually have neutral arches. Podiatrists and other foot care specialists estimate that 85% of all people either have low arches (flat feet) or high arches. Considering this fact, it is no wonder so many people experience some foot pain resulting from improper foot arch function. As we walk or run, our foot adjusts to the movement, which is called pronation. Pronation allows for our foot to slightly turn right before impact to allow for the surface we are walking or running on and to permit our foot to strike the ground heel first and then hinge forward to the balls of our feet.
If this pronation is exaggerated or does not work precisely correct, it can cause foot problems. Over-pronation results in the heel striking the ground with the outside edge first that puts undue stress on the arch and eventually causes a flattening of the arch.
Orthotic Arch Support Insoles have been proven to help our feet pronate as nature intended to prevent over-pronation. Spenco Orthotic Arch Support Insoles are the most recommended Orthotic Insoles by Podiatrist and other foot care specialists. These Spenco insoles are the most recommended because they have proven to be the best solution for people needing orthotic arch support. These doctor designed, clinically tested Arch Support Insoles help to control, stabilize, balance and properly align the foot to help insure correct foot and foot arch function.
Moldable for a perfect fit along with a flexible but firm arch bridge offers a controlled support covered with a closed cell nitrogen injected cushioning material to absorb impact and improve overall comfort from heel to toe. The Orthotic Insoles are topped with a friction resistant, anti-microbial top cloth to prevent blisters and decrease odor causing bacteria.
Spenco Orthotic Arch Supports are recommended for normal and flat foot types and have been awarded the prestigious Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association.
