Orthopaedic insoles influence the static as well as the dynamic weight bearing of your foot. They support and guide the foot. They relieve painful areas due to foot deformities and malposition by distributing the pressure on the surrounding, painless areas.
Insoles can be used for dampening, cushioning and also for correcting depending on the problem. A special form of insoles are sensorimotor soles. These reduce muscular disbalances and can specifically activate or inhibit individual muscles.
The therapeutic success of insoles depends very much on the shoes. Insoles and shoes must form a single unit, as the effect of the insoles without proper footwear is not or only partially successful. There are many different indications for wearing insoles.
