Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Orthotics?

Some people refer to orthotics as “arch supports,” but they do more than that! Powerstep Insoles Orthotics are shoe inserts that help to correct improper foot alignment during activities like walking and running. Even though orthotics work directly on foot position, they also affect the alignment of ankles, knees, hips, and the low back, because everything is linked together in a biomechanical chain!

How to choose Powerstep Insoles orthotics?

Improper foot alignment can cause pain anywhere in the foot, legs, and back. Over time, these aches and pains may potentially result in overuse injuries such as shin splints, tendonitis, and stress fractures. Some lower extremity pain and injuries may be helped and/or prevented by Powerstep Insoles orthotics.

How to break in Powerstep Insoles?

Sometimes, when people start wearing Powerstep Insoles orthotics, they may experience soreness in their feet, legs, or low back. A short period of soreness is normal, but can be reduced and/or eliminated if you gradually get your body used to your new orthotics. Follow these steps to break in new orthotics:

  • Get used to your new orthotics during activities of daily living, such as school and shopping. Wear your orthotics in the shoes that you will be using them in the most (if possible).
  • Increase your wear time by 2 hours each day. For example, on the first day, wear your orthotics for 2 hours, and then remove them from your shoes. On the second day, wear them for 4 hours and then remove them, and so on.
  • If you notice soreness, you can remain on the same level of wear time for a few days until the soreness subsides. Then, continue increasing wear time by 2 hours each day.
  • Wait to use your orthotics in your sport shoes until you can wear them comfortably for a full day during activities of daily living. Then gradually increase the use of the orthotics in your sport shoes over a few days. Start by just using them for running, and then increase the amount and type of activity performed while wearing them.

What conditions are orthotics used to treat?

Powerstep Insoles orthotics can be used for several medical conditions. Examples include:

  • Arthritis. Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis can cause discomfort in the feet and poor positioning that orthotics may help to correct.
  • Back pain. Sometimes poor positioning of the feet, such as arches that roll inward, or lack of cushioning can cause pain that orthotics can lessen.
  • Bunions. Bunions are painful bumps that can develop at the base of the big toe and cause foot deformities. Orthotics with a wide toe box can help to reduce pressure on the big toe.
  • Bursitis. Inflammation of fluid-filled sacs in the heels and toes can cause bursitis pain and discomfort. Orthotics with heel and arch support can help to reduce bursitis discomfort.
  • Flat feet. Flat feet can cause foot, ankle, and back pain. Orthotics can help to support the feet and promote proper foot positioning.
  • Hammer toes. Hammertoes often occur as a side effect of bunions on the big toe. They cause second-toe pain and deformities on the ball of the foot. Orthotics can provide additional support to the feet and reduce the likelihood that hammer toes will worsen.
  • Heel spurs. Heel spurs are conditions where excess bone grows on the back or bottom of the heel. Orthotics can support the foot and reduce inflammation.
  • High arches. Very high arches can stress muscles in the feet and lead to a number of conditions, such as shin splints, knee pain, and plantar fasciitis. Orthotics can help prevent a person’s feet from rolling excessively inward or outward.
  • Injuries. People who’ve experienced trauma to their feet and ankles may require extra support during the healing process with orthotics.
  • Plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. Doctors may sometimes recommend orthotics to support the heel and foot.

Doctors may also prescribe custom orthotics for people who have positional concerns with their feet or legs. This can include those with underdeveloped leg and foot muscles.
