If the foot rolls in excessively, the leg inwardly rotates which can then cause the pelvis to tilt forward. This can create an increased curve in the lower back and potentially lead to back pain.
When walking, the foot flattens on the ground which leads the arch of the foot to flatten and lengthen. This may stretch and strain ligaments the support the ach and can lead to stresss and inflammation of the tissues. Heel pain is often worse after rest or first thing in the morning and if left untreated can develop into a heel spur.
When the foot rolls excessively, the alignment of the kneecap can be affected.People with poor kneecap alignment often complain of pain and discomfort when walking up and down stairs.It is recommended that you wear your orthotics in gradually. Begin wearing for one hour on the first day and then build up by one hour each day thereafter. Minor aches and pains are common during the adjustment period but will resolve within two weeks.
Consult your medical practitioner if pain persists.
Do not use on undiagnosed pain.
If you have diabetes or problems with circulation ask your doctor or chiropodist before use.
