Why Orthotics for Flat Feet and Overpronation Only Give Temporary Relief

When you have flat feet pain it is easy for you to try anything that will give you any type of relief. Living your life day to day when your feet hurt can make you desperate to do anything to reduce some pain. Especially if you also have pain in other areas of your body such as knees, hips, and back. What type of options do you have for relief?

Orthotics are popular because they can be purchased from a drugstore at an affordable price or if you’re willing to pay more, can be custom made. But orthotics are only good for temporary relief and not a good, permanent solution.

Targeting the Problem

You might think going to retailers that sell orthotics or purchasing custom orthotics will be the best way to give you relief from your flat feet pain. However, if you have flat feet orthotics won’t fix the root of the problem causing you pain – misaligned feet caused by the partial dislocation of the ankle bone on the heel bone. These off-the-shelf or custom made orthotics supposedly function to realign and support the arch of the foot. While there are many people who find relief using an arch support, the majority of arch supports will not target your specific problem – the misalignment.

A Temporary Solution

Unfortunately even custom orthotics are seen as a temporary and external fix. Orthotics might decrease the strain in your foot, but the inserts at best will only help subdue your flat feet pain caused by your foot misalignment, and not treat the real problem. The misalignment that you have in your feet must be fixed in order to alleviate any pain that you have in your feet and throughout your body. But what is considered a more permanent solution to your flat feet pain?

A Permanent Solution

We are pleased to tell you that there is a more permanent solution to eliminating your pain. You can put your feet back in alignment with a device called HyProCure®. This is a minimally invasive soft-tissue procedure that inserts a stent in the naturally occurring space between your ankle and heel bones. The hindfoot bones are realigned and internally stabilized, restoring the motion of the ankle.

It is time to prioritize your feet and take care of them. By tending to the misalignment in your feet with HyProCure®, you will not only treat your flat foot pain, but may relieve any other pain that the misalignment is causing in your knees, hips and back.
