Have you been told to get a good supportive shoe or get a good arch support? We have many patients who have been told to do so. Unfortunately, they did not find us until they went through many pairs of shoes or multiple types of pads, wedges, cups, lifts, and/or arch supports.
This picture shows one patient’s “Bag of Tricks” she brought in to show us what she’s tried.
Trying to pick out an arch support or a shoe without professional advice or fit is like picking the winning team from the NCAA bracket. It can even be difficult for those who are familiar with the different products.
There are many different types and shapes of feet that can affect the way they function.
This is why a true professional, one with a plethora of education and experience, would be best to help you determine what is best for you.
If you have tried more than one thing and it did not work for you, stop the arch madness!
Call ArchMasters at (615) 370-3000 to discuss what options are available to you.
