In a study by Glasgow Caledonian University, nearly 40% of individuals surveyed reported moderate to severe foot pain. Do you struggle with pain in your feet as well? It's often linked to other issues, like misalignment in your hips, back, or shoulders.


Or, you may have a different problem, like bunions, arthritis, or plantar fasciitis. You don't have to grin and bear the pain. If you suffer from any of the above, you may want to consider foot insoles.


Are Insoles Bad For Your Feet?


Insoles, or orthotics, are inserts you place inside your shoes. But should you use them? Some suggest inserts harm your posture or provide too much cushioning.


Cheap or mass-produced insoles are unlikely to help you support your feet properly. But the right insoles, provided by a podiatrist, will be custom made for your feet. They're a great tool for promoting better foot posture and support.
