What is a Neuroma?

The term “neuroma” refers to a growth of nerve tissue. It is sometimes also known as a pinched nerve or nerve tumor, although a neuroma is benign. Neuromas most often occur between the third and fourth toes.

They cause pain in the feet; patients who have neuromas often describe the feeling as being similar to having a rock in their shoe. In addition, many patients experience a burning sensation, numbness, and tingling in the area between the toes and the ball of the foot.

The pain caused by a neuroma tends to be worst when a person is walking. Many patients find that stopping, taking off their shoes, and rubbing the area brings relief.

Causes of Neuromas

We do not know exactly what causes a neuroma to develop. However, some contributing factors have been identified. We also know that the large majority of people who develop a neuroma are female. Other contributing factors include the following:

1. Having an abnormal shape to the feet, like flat feet or high arches, can contribute to the development of a neuroma. Flat feet and high arches create instability around the toe joints, and as a result, a neuroma is more likely to develop.

2. Trauma to the foot can cause swelling and inflammation of the nerve.

3. Shoes that squeeze the toes together can cause problems. High heels, in particular, can pinch the feet and put pressure on the nerves. Avoid heels that are greater than two inches, as they put excessive pressure on the balls of the feet.

4. Repetitive trauma or strain on the feet can cause a neuroma. This is often seen in occupations that require a person to perform a repetitive action.

Symptoms of Neuromas

Patients who have neuromas often experience the following symptoms:

1. Pain between the toes and in the front of the foot;
2. Numbness and tingling in the ball of the foot;
3. Swelling between the toes; and
4. Pain in the ball of the foot, particularly when bearing weight.

Treatment for Neuromas

If you have a neuroma, there are several things that you can do to relieve your pain. The first and most important thing that you can do is to choose proper footwear. Look for shoes with a wide toe box, which gives your toes plenty of room to move around.
Adding arch supports to your shoes can be a big help, as well. Arch Supports can help to relieve pressure on the foot. A low heel on your shoe will also help to relieve pressure at the ball of foot area. Avoid high heels, particularly those that are more than two inches.

When you do experience pain related to a neuroma, you should rest the foot. Elevate the foot and apply an ice pack. Massaging the painful area can also be beneficial.

Your doctor/pharmacist may also recommend taking over the counter anti-inflammatory medication, or your doctor may recommend a steroid injection. Some patients also find relief by padding or taping the foot, which helps to correct the abnormal mechanics of the foot.

If you are suffering from neuroma pain, visit Boyner Clinic. We carry a large stock of high-quality Customized insoles and footwear, we can even order custom shoes. We offer a wide variety of orthotic inserts, (over the counter arch supports & can even create a set of custom arch supports for you) as well.

All About Diabetes and Your Feet

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that affects the body’s ability to produce insulin, either preventing it from producing sufficient insulin or making it resistant to the insulin that is produced. As a result, the blood glucose level is elevated.

In addition the other health risks that are presented by diabetes, patients often also experience symptoms in their feet and legs. The blood supply to the lower extremities is affected, and patients can develop diabetic neuropathy.

Neuropathy means that the nerves are damaged. The excessive level of glucose in the blood can damage the walls of the blood vessels that feed the nerves, particularly in the legs. As the result of this nerve damage, the ability to feel pain is lessened. Patients may be unaware of physical problems due to this loss of sensation and inability to feel pain. Consequently, people with diabetes are prone to developing foot ulcers and other foot problems.

Neuropathy is often described as a tingling or burning sensation. It can also present as a feeling of lost sensation, such as if one were wearing a glove. Symptoms may vary amongst patients based upon the particular type of neuropathy and which nerves are affected.

Typically, neuropathy begins in the longest nerves, which reach the toes. The symptoms of neuropathy include the following:

A. Numbness and tingling in the feet, hands, legs, and arms;
B. Burning sensation;
C. Sharp pain that might feel like an electrical shock;
D. Intense sensitivity to touch;
E. Difficulty with coordination;

People who have diabetes are at a greatly increased risk of developing gangrene in the feet and requiring an amputation. In fact, the risk is increased by 15 times. Fortunately, the risk is decreased if a diabetic person is able to keep their blood sugars under good control. You should visit your doctor regularly, monitor your blood sugar levels, and take the medication that your doctor has prescribed.

Caring for Your Feet When You Have Diabetes

If you have diabetes, it is particularly important that you take good care of your feet. In addition to your visits with your regular physician, you should also see a podiatrist at least once a year.

If you develop a sore or blister on your feet, you should visit your doctor or podiatrist for treatment right away so that infection does not set in. If any ulceration, redness, or swelling develops, you should seek urgent medical treatment.
In addition to regular medical care, you can take the following steps to care for your feet:

1. Make sure that your feet stay clean in order to prevent infection. Wash and dry them thoroughly each day.
2. Wear shoes that are roomy and comfortable. Shoes that don’t fit well can lead to the development of corns, calluses, nail problems, and ulcers. These minor problems can become serious for those who have diabetes.
3. Don’t walk barefoot. Although it may seem appealing, particularly for a walk on the beach or in the garden, it exposes you to cuts and injuries on the feet that can become infected.
4. Trim your toenails regularly.

Smoking can exacerbate blood circulation problems and foot problems related to diabetes. If you are diabetic and you smoke, it is very important that you try to quit. Smoking can greatly aggravate foot problems caused by circulation issues and diabetes.

If you have diabetes, it is essential that you wear proper footwear to protect your feet. Visit Boyner Clinic today. We have a wide selection of footwear and Customized insoles that is suitable for people who have diabetes and related foot issues, so stop in today to learn more.

Relieve Your Bunion Pain – Bunion Treatment from Boyner Clinic

Bunions look ugly, and they don’t feel very good, either. In our quest to look fabulous, we wear shoes that hurt and can end up causing bunions.

A bunion is a big, red swollen bump that develops on the side of the foot. Once you get one, it can hurt to wear shoes or spend any time on your feet.

Fortunately, there are lots of treatment options available, from the very conservative to the aggressive. Read on to see what type of treatment might be best for you.

Home Remedies for Bunions

There are some simple remedies that you can try at home as your first line of defense for treating bunions. The first and most obvious thing to do is to rest the affected foot. If there is a particular pair of shoes that you realize may have caused the problem, stop wearing them.

Switch to shoes that feel better and give you more support. Bunions often develop as the result of wearing shoes that are too tight, too narrow, or too crowded. Avoid wearing high heels.
Choose comfortable and supportive walking shoes as much as possible. It is also a good idea to stop in to a specialized footwear store (specialty shoe shop ) and get your feet measured. Our feet don’t stay the same size our whole lives; they often grow over the years as a result of fluctuations in weight as well as the process of aging.

It is quite common for your feet to go up a size or two over the years. If your shoes are too tight, they crowd your toes and can cause bunions. Wearing shoes that fit properly is essential to relieving bunion pain and preventing you from developing new bunions. Plan to get your feet measured at least once a year to make sure that your size hasn’t changed.

Custom orthotic inserts (arch supports) for your shoes can also help ease bunion pain. They make your shoes fit more comfortably and correct improper pronation that can be causing you to develop bunions. Wearing these inserts will help to slow the progression of existing bunions.

At Your Doctor’s Office

Your doctor/pharmacist may recommend trying over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications to ease the pain caused by bunions. Applying an ice pack to the affected area is sometimes helpful, as well.

If those steps don’t do the trick, they may recommend that you have a local injection of cortisone. This will reduce inflammation in the area and provide quick relief.
If the skin surrounding the bunion appears to be getting infected, you should see your doctor right away. You may need to be treated with antibiotics.

Surgery

If none of the other treatment options help, you may need to have surgery. The procedure is known as a bunionectomy. During a bunionectomy, the surgeon removes the bony growth and realigns the joint. This corrects the deformity, which improves the function of the foot and relieves pain.

While surgery is often effective, it is not guaranteed to cure the condition. It is still possible that, after surgery, the toe could move back to its previous position. The success of surgery increases when the patient wears a combination of proper footwear and custom orthotic inserts (arch supports).

If you have bunions, Visit Boyner Clinic. We work with people who suffer from bunions every day, and we can help you to find shoes that are both attractive and comfortable. Some of our shoes come with stretchable leathers etc, so that your bunion is comfortable from day one. Read more about foot problem solutions at http://www.boyner-clinic.com/

Prevent / Reduce Foot Pain with Supportive Shoes & Arch Supports


Many people experience foot pain, but you don’t have to suffer through it. Studies have shown that wearing a supportive shoe, combined with an arch support (foot arch supports) can help to prevent/reduce foot pain. Foot pain is caused by a variety of foot conditions, including plantar fasciitis, peripheral neuropathy, and many types of arch and heel pain.

Wearing an arch support is an easy step that you can take to improve your condition. The type of foot condition that you have and its severity will determine the type of treatment that is best for you.

For those who experience minor foot pain, you can get relief by simply wearing supportive shoes and using over-the-counter arch supports. For conditions that are more severe, these may require treatment with a more orthopaedically designed shoe & a custom arch support.

The way that your body weight is distributed when you walk will affect where you experience foot pain. The most common locations for foot pain are the heels, arches, and ankles.
Orthopaedically designed shoes are made to give you the support that you need and relieve your pain. Many types of orthopaedic shoes have additional support in the arch of the foot and also provide the mobility that you need in the ankle and support for heel striking. Note: nowadays shoes that are designed for Orthopaedic purposes can look just like regular shoes on the outside – it’s the supportive features inside that make the difference!

Foot pain is often caused by fallen arches, which is also known as Fallen arches is a condition in which the arches of the feet have collapsed. As a result, the soles of the feet come into complete (or nearly complete) contact with the ground.

The arch does not properly absorb the body’s shock. This causes pain in the feet as well as the knees, lower back, and legs. Wearing foot arch supports can significantly relieve the painful effects of fallen arches.

Plantar fasciitis is a condition that causes pain in the heel and arch of the foot. It is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is the band of tissue that runs the length of the foot and connects the heel to the toes. Over time, that tissue can develop small tears and become inflamed.

Normally, the tissue can repair itself. However, repetitive strain on the plantar fascia can cause it to lose that ability to repair itself. The tears may stop healing, and the plantar fascia can become inflamed and degenerate.

Plantar fasciitis can be caused by repetitive motion or injury. Even the shape of your foot (such as very high arches) can make you prone to developing plantar fasciitis. If you have plantar fasciitis, you can prevent problems and relieve pain by wearing (foot) arch supports. Arch supports help to give your feet the support that they need and reduce strain on the plantar fascia.

Certain medical conditions can cause foot problems, as well. Diabetes is a common precursor to foot problems. People who have diabetes can develop peripheral neuropathy, which can lead to serious foot problems.

Patients may develop numbness and tingling in their feet, and may not notice problems with their feet due to the loss of sensation. If you are diabetic, it is very important that you care for your feet.

Try to stay active, and wear supportive shoes with custom arch supports to give your feet the support that they need. This can help to prevent serious problems with your feet.
If you have foot pain, visit Boyner Clinic. We can help you to find supportive shoes and arch supports to help minimize your foot pain and keep you active. Any foot problem visit boyner clinic @ http://www.boyner-clinic.com/

Tendonitis Symptoms and Treatment

Tendonitis is a condition that is caused by the inflammation of a tendon, which is the cord that attaches a bone to a muscle. Tendonitis is fairly common. Since tendons are located in many different locations throughout your body, tendonitis can develop in a wide variety of places.

Some of the most common spots where tendonitis develops include the thumb, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, and the Achilles’ tendon. The Achilles’ tendon runs along the back of the foot and connects the calf muscle to the heel bone.

What Causes Tendonitis?

In most cases, tendonitis is the result of repetitive movement in whichever location is affected. Many types of repetitive movements involve some minor impact. Although the impact is minor, when it occurs repeatedly, it can cause inflammation.
Many people who have tendonitis have developed it through the practice of various sports and hobbies, like gardening, painting, golf, or tennis. Performing these same motions over and over can be enough to inflame the tendon. You are also more likely to develop tendonitis if you do not stretch properly before activity.

The tendency to develop tendonitis increases with age. As we age, our tendons lose their elasticity and are less able to tolerate stress. People who have other medical problems, such as psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout, are also more likely to develop tendonitis.

Symptoms of Tendonitis

Tendonitis causes pain, tenderness, and sometimes mild swelling in the affected area.

How to Avoid Tendonitis

Taking some simple precautions can help you to avoid developing tendonitis. You should always stretch before exercising or partaking in other active hobbies. Begin your activity slowly, and gradually increase your activity level.
Avoid repetitive motions whenever possible, and exert minimal force. If you have pain, take a break. Let your body rest, and try again later.

Treatment Options

If you are suffering from tendonitis, you should temporarily stop engaging in the activity that brought on your pain. Rest the affected area. Try applying ice to the affected area, and you may be advised to take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications by your doctor/pharmacist. If this doesn’t help, you should revisit your doctor to discuss other treatment options.
Your doctor may recommend that you receive a steroid injection at the site of the pain. The steroid injection reduces inflammation in the tendon, which usually relieves pain pretty quickly.

Physical therapy treatments may also be beneficial. This involves performing a variety of stretching and range of motion exercises. You may also be given a splint to wear on the affected area.

If no other treatment options are effective, your doctor may recommend that you undergo surgery.

Achilles Tendonitis

Achilles Tendonitis affects the back of the foot and the calf. It can cause pain in the heel and along the length of the tendon (up the back of the calf) while you are walking or running. It can also cause stiffness or pain in those areas, especially upon waking in the morning.

Wearing shoes that do not give your feet the support that they need can exacerbate Achilles tendonitis. If you have Achilles tendonitis, it is important that you wear shoes that are supportive. Doing so can reduce your symptoms and minimize pain. Look for shoes that are softer under the heel cushion, and wear heel lifts in your shoes.

If you have Achilles tendonitis, visit Boyner Clinic. We offer a variety of supportive footwear , cushioning inserts and arch supports that help to support and protect your feet so that you can continue with all of your favorite activities. Read more at http://www.boyner-clinic.com/

What is a Heel Spur?

A heel spur is a protrusion of bony growth on the bottom of the heel bone (calcaneus). It is formed by deposits of calcium. In many cases, heel spurs are visible on an x-ray of the foot. In fact, heel spurs can protrude from the heel by as much as half an inch. Not every heel spur is visible on an x-ray, though.
Sometimes, the symptoms of heel spurs are present, but the x-ray does not demonstrate a noticeable protrusion. When symptoms of heel spurs are present but a spur cannot be visualized through radiology, a diagnosis of heel spur syndrome is made.

A heel spur can be present without causing pain – even if the spur is large enough to appear on an x-ray. However, heel spurs do cause pain for many people. They often are present in conjunction with another condition of the foot, such as plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the connective tissue that joins the heel with the ball of the foot.

What Causes Heel Spurs?

Heel spurs occur when there is a buildup of calcium on the bottom of the heel. This buildup develops over an extended period of time. It can be triggered by straining the ligaments and muscles in the foot or stretching the plantar fascia.
Athletes are particularly prone to developing heel spurs, especially those whose sport involves a lot of running or jumping.

The risk factors that contribute to the development of heel spurs include the following:

• Improper gait, particularly when the gait places excessive stress on the heel;
• Jogging or running, particularly on hard surfaces like roadways;
• Wearing shoes that lack support or don’t fit properly;
• Being overweight;
• Aging;
• Diabetes;
• Having high arches;
• Having flat feet; and
• Spending long periods of time standing.

Heel Spurs – Symptoms

It is possible to have heel spurs without experiencing any symptoms. Often, the pain related to a heel spur occurs intermittently. It tends to be worst when a person first wakes up and stands up in the morning.

After moving about a bit, the pain may go away. It can then return after a period of inactivity. The pain can also be exacerbated by more strenuous activity, like running.

However, rest is not always the best way to deal with heel spurs, due in part to their connection with plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia tightens when the feet are at rest.

When you stand up after a period of rest, the plantar fascia suddenly must stretch out. Over time, it loosens up, and the pain goes away. Moderate levels of activity are typically best for heel spurs.

Heel Spur – Treatment

If you have a heel spur, your doctor/pharmacist might advise you to take over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, to address the pain. Many patients benefit from physical therapy or at-home stretching exercises, too.

The best treatment for plantar fasciitis and heel spurs is supportive, cushioned footwear, along with a custom arch support. You should have your feet assessed by a professional and consider using these, which may help to prevent pain instead of reacting to pain after you have it.

If you have been diagnosed with a heel spur, or if you have any type of heel pain, visit Boyner Clinic in your area. Boyner Clinic can custom fit you with shoes and arch supports that will help to minimize your pain and make your daily activities comfortable again.

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

As foot injuries go, plantar fasciitis doesn’t sound very impressive. However, all too many people who are active (& especially athletes) know that it is not only painful, but also common. In fact, around 10% of runners are affected by plantar fasciitis.

In addition to them, many basketball players, football players, golfers, and other athletes are sidelined by foot pain as a result of plantar fasciitis. Professionals like American NBA star Kobe Bryant and Olympic marathoner Ryan Hall have both been affected by plantar fasciitis. However, you do not have to be an athlete to suffer from this condition too.

The cause of plantar fasciitis has never been well understood. We know that there seems to be a link between sports training, repetitive movements, and plantar fasciitis. Athletes seem to be particularly prone – particularly runners – which seems to be related to the fact that they are constantly putting strain on the plantar fascia.

Weight bearing activities, being overweight, over pronation (flat feet) & high arches, may all contribute to causing more strain on the plantar fascia, which in turn can lead to Plantar Fasciitis. Tight calf muscles & a tight Achilles tendon may also be a contributing factor.

The plantar fascia is a long, narrow band of tissue located on the underside of the foot. It connects the heel to the toes, and its length forms part of your foot’s arch. The painful condition known as plantar fasciitis is characterized by a sharp, stabbing pain in the foot, usually in the arch of the foot or at the heel.
The pain is typically worst when you first stand up after getting out of bed in the morning or stand up after sitting down for an extended period of time. When you are at rest, the plantar fascia tightens and stiffens. Then, when you stand up after resting, strain is put on the tightened plantar fascia. Once you have been on your feet for a while, the plantar fascia loosens up, and the pain lessens.

Many doctors believe that plantar fasciitis is caused by chronic inflammation in the plantar fascia. They think that the repetitive action of running or putting pressure on the feet through other repetitive activities provokes an inflammatory response from the body. The plantar fascia becomes inflamed, and this inflammation develops into a chronic condition.

Plantar fasciitis can also be caused by a weakening or degeneration of the plantar fascia tissue. During exercise and activity, the plantar fascia develops small tears. This is a normal response, and typically, those tears heal themselves without any noticeable or long-term damage, but in some cases, this does not happen.

In cases where plantar fasciitis develops, doctors suspect that the frequency of training /activity prevents those small tears from healing properly. Instead, the body is bombarded by tissue damage, and it is unable to keep up with healing or naturally repairing the damage.

When inflammation is suspected, & the normal regime of Rest, Ice & Elevation does not work, then this condition is commonly treated by administering anti-inflammatory steroidal injections. However, there are some other forms of treatment that have proven to be successful also.

How to Avoid Plantar Fasciitis?

Many people may find relief from plantar fasciitis pain by supporting the feet with proper footwear and arch supports. Regular gentle stretching of the calf muscles, achilles tendon & plantar fascia can also help to prevent the “tightening” of the plantar fascia & to strengthen up this group of muscles/tendons in general.

These alterations can provide the support that the feet need during activity, so that the plantar fascia is not put under excessive strain & therefore does not weaken or get inflamed.
If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, contact Boyner Clinic. We provide top of the line footwear customized insoles, over the counter arch supports, and custom arch supports that can give your feet the support that they need. Visit Boyner Clinic for more @ http://www.boyner-clinic.com/

Do You Have Ankle Pain When Walking / Running? Here is The Solution

If you are experiencing ankle pain when walking or running, you should know that there are several variables at play in the ankle. The pain can be coming from the ankle joint itself or from the tendons that run through it. Read on to learn more about the ankle joint and how you can deal with pain.

Facts about the Ankle and Tendonitis

The ankle joint is like a hinge that opens and closes. Pain in that joint can be the result of a trauma or injury to the joint or a disease that causes the joint to degenerate, like arthritis. Ankle sprains are common, and are often the result of twisting an ankle while walking, sometimes because of wearing unstable shoes.

These can be mild and resolve quickly, or can cause pain and problems for an extended period of time. The term Tendonitis refers to an inflammation of a tendon – in this case, we are discussing the ankle.

How Does the Ankle Work?

The ankle joint is shaped like a hinge. It opens and closes to move the foot away from the body and toward the body. The joint is formed at the place where three bones meet: the tibia, the fibula, and the talus.

The tibia and fibula are the two bones in the lower leg, and the talus is a large bone in the foot. The two bumps that you see on the sides of your ankle are called malleoli. Their purpose is to stabilize the ankle joint.

In addition to the malleoli, there are ligaments on either side of the ankle that give stability to the joint. They help to strap the ankle into place. The Achilles tendon is a large tendon in the calf. It wraps behind the ankle and attaches to the back of the heel.

What Causes Ankle Pain When Walking / Running?

One of the most common causes of ankle pain is a strain. A strain is an injury to the ligaments in the ankle. When the ligament is stretched abruptly or stretched too far (as often happens when a person twists an ankle due to stepping on an uneven surface), the ligament can tear partially or completely.
If you have had a previous ankle injury or the muscle there is weakened for any reason, you are more likely to develop an ankle strain. If you strain your ankle, you may hear a popping and sound and immediately experience severe pain. The area may quickly become swollen and be painful to move.

Treating an ankle strain includes ice, anti-inflammatory medication (on advice from a pharmacist/doctor), elevating the injured area, and reducing weight-bearing activities.

Tendonitis is a term that refers to inflammation of a tendon. It can occur in any tendon in the body, but when it is located in the ankle area, it is often the Achilles tendon. Achilles tendonitis can be caused by inflammatory diseases or acute sports injuries.

Treatment for tendonitis is similar to treatment for ankle strains, including ice, anti-inflammatory medication (advice as before), elevating the injured area, and reducing weight-bearing activities.

You may need to avoid sports until the inflammation has resolved. If the tendon ruptures, surgery may be required.

Treatment for Ankle Pain

If you are experiencing ankle pain, there are a variety of steps that you can take to make yourself more comfortable. Follow the advice and direction of doctor. Also, wear shoes that provide support to your ankle. When the muscle or tendons or weakened, it is particularly important that you wear shoes that will add stability and support the ankle in order to prevent further injury. Wearing a customized arch support, or a suitable over the counter arch support, will further help to stabilize the foot & ankle joint.

Arch Pain Symptoms and Treatment from Boyner Clinic

In this article, we are going to talk about arch pain treatment. Many people experience pain in the arch of the foot. This is known as arch strain or arch pain. Arch pain usually involves inflammation of the arch of the foot, and can sometimes cause a burning sensation in the foot.

Causes of Arch Pain

There are several different variables that can contribute to arch pain. One common foot condition that causes arch pain is plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that runs the length of the foot, along the underside.

It connects the heel to the ball of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of that connective tissue. When the plantar fascia is stretched too far or develops small tears, plantar fasciitis can result. The body may lose its ability to repair these tiny tears in the plantar fascia due to inflammation or repetitive minor injury.

Sometimes, having flat feet causes a person to develop plantar fasciitis. Many people who have plantar fasciitis experience arch pain. Arch pain that is caused by plantar fasciitis is often most noticeable or severe when a person first wakes up in the morning or stands up after a long period of rest.

This occurs because the plantar fascia tightens when your feet are at rest. When you stand up again, you put pressure on the feet and stretch the plantar fascia out again.

Preventing and Arch Pain Treatment
There are a few simple steps that you can take to minimize arch pain, including the following:

A. Avoid wearing high heels;
B. Choose supportive, comfortable shoes;
C. Use orthotics, or customised shoe inserts;
D. Elevate the feet and apply ice to the arches; and
E. Use over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications (always seek advice from your pharmacist or doctor first).
F. Once the soreness has subsided & when any inflammation has cleared up, gentle calf stretching exercises, will also help to keep the Plantar Fascia stretched & more resistant to further strain.

You should also be attentive to any changes in your feet as you get older. The feet will lose some of their fat pad as you get older. You may go up a shoe size, and your feet may also get wider.

Choose footwear that is sturdy, but comfortable. Before you buy new shoes, have your feet measured to make sure that you are wearing the right size.

Choose shoes that are made specifically for the purpose for which you will wear them. Athletic shoes are divided into different categories, like running shoes, hiking shoes, and cross-trainers. Choose a shoe that has the features that meet your needs & that suits the shape of your feet.

If you are experiencing increasing levels of pain in your feet, you should visit your doctor. You may experience some arthritic changes in your feet as you age. If that is the case, your doctor may recommend medication or other treatment to slow the progression of the arthritis.

Support Your Arches

All feet need proper arch support, and that is especially true if you have arch pain. You can gain that support by using orthotic inserts or custom arch supports, in your shoes to support your feet. These inserts are beneficial for those who have flat feet as well as those who have high arches. In addition to using shoe inserts, you should choose supportive shoes.

Avoid high heels and flip-flops. If you have to wear high heels, stick to heels that are less than two inches, and wear them for brief time periods. Wear flip-flops only when you won’t be walking for very long, since they offer very little support.
