There are a lot of people out there who suffer from foot pain. A great deal of those people also thing that it is completely normal and acceptable to simply tough it out and live with that pain. However, this is an obvious fallacy. Orthopedic insoles are a cheap and easy way of eliminating all kinds of foot issues and disorders. They are often the first stop for doctors and podiatrists when suggesting means to help treat their patients, and they are used everywhere from physical therapy to intense athletic sport. Furthermore, they are cheaper and easier than ever to produce, so it is now affordable for everyone’s budget.

The medical benefits from orthopedic insoles are well known and documented. They provide a much more efficient means of displacing the weight of the person’s body along the various contact points of the human feet and as a result are able to relieve the strain and stress upon them. This immediately helps the individual with a variety of medical conditions. Inflammation is decreased, thus allowing the feet to move more freely, any conditions that are the result of a misalignment of the joints in the feet are also adjusted and can thereby be treated appropriately.

When it comes to athletic performance, orthopedic insoles help that much more considerably. In a situation where the individual’s feet are already performing well, they are still subjected to a variety of stresses that can serve to submit the individual to pain, frustration and a loss in productivity. Orthopedic insoles can prevent that from occurring or at the very least lessen its probability.

Furthermore, orthopedic insoles are now easier and cheaper to produce and therefore it is possible for anyone to get them. The process has been expedited by a few advancements in smartphones, image recognition technology and three dimensional printing. Together they have eliminated the need for repeated doctor’s visits and messy molds being shipped back and forth across the country. The process is thus, a person is able to take pictures of their feet on their smartphone. Those pictures are now of a quality where they can be run through an image recognition algorithm and rendered into a digital representation of the person’s feet. At that point, that digital image is then used by a three dimensional printer to print a mold that is used to create the actual orthopedic insoles. Finally they are shipped directly to the consumers. It’s as easy as that.
