Proper foot supportAs told by American Podiatric Medical Association spokeswoman Leslie Campbell, countless individuals wear shoes that do not have enough foot support.

As physical activity among average people increases, so do the occurrences of foot disorders, particularly for sportspersons. Recreational activities that require rapid side to side actions put your ankles in jeopardy, whereas things such as long distance running threaten heel spurs and pinched nerves.

“We see more young children coming in because they play sports like soccer and wear cleats, which are rigid, don’t absorb shock, cause fatigue and should be worn as little as possible,” Campbell says. Dr. Campbell also advises against wearing cleats off the field and warm up adequately so the joints are supple in the shoe. Kinesiologist Dr. Eugene Charles also suggests keeping feet elevated when at rest.

Proper support is important whether it’s everyday walking or participating in exercise or sport. A podiatrist like Dr. Michael Stein of Foot Doctor of the East Bay can make recommendations on how to care and find shoes that fit you, as well as help you with any foot pain you might have experienced from wearing ill-fitting footwear.

The Importance of Proper Foot Support

Walking is an everyday function for both men and women, and in order to keep your body’s balance in order, you are going to need shoes that provide the proper kinds of support. 

Poor foot support can cause pain and discomfort in the lower back, hips, knees, neck and shoulder. It also can lead to emotional stress, and physiological changes in the body. In order to avoid these problems, you must have proper foot support.
