How arch support Slippers help ARCH PAIN
When looking at an adult foot from the inner side, you’ll usually notice an upward curve in the middle. This is called an arch. Tendons, which are the tight bands that attach at the heel and foot bones, form the arch. Several tendons in your foot and lower leg work together to form the arch in your foot. The arches are the primary structures of the body that absorb shocks when you are on your feet.
When the tendons all pull adequately, the foot forms a moderate, normal arch. When tendons do not pull together properly, there is little or no arch. This is called flat foot or fallen arch.
When our arches don’t effectively absorb the shock of our steps, this can result in painful or achy feet, especially heel and arch pain. Foot arch pain can often be made worse with long periods of standing or physical activity.
WHAT CAUSES FOOT ARCH PAIN?
Arch pain occurs due to weakened or strained ligaments associated with the bones in the arch of your foot. It is primarily caused by wearing shoes with inadequate support, standing or walking for long periods of time, or overuse of the feet during work or sports. Being overweight also places additional stress on the feet, especially the arches.
Pain in the arch of your foot can also happen because of a certain quirk in the way you walk or stand. If your feet don’t move in a straight enough line when you walk, for example, this can cause some muscles in your arches to work harder than the others, leading to pain.
There can be many other causes of arch pain. Direct injury, muscle strains, ligament sprains, tightness or lack of tightness of the joints in the foot are just some of the other possible causes of this pain.
HOW TO HELP PREVENT ARCH PAIN?
There are some steps you can take to help prevent pain in the arch of your foot. For example:
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Add insoles to your shoes for extra arch support, especially if your shoes come with a flat factory-made insole.
- Use supportive shoes, especially when exercising, to evenly distribute weight through your entire foot
If you work on your feet, live an active lifestyle, or have body pain that prevents you from living the life you want – you should try arch support shoes.
