With Summer on the Way, It’s Time to Consider Orthotic Sandals
In many cases, people who require orthotics assume that they can’t wear flip-flops or sandals. Thankfully, this isn’t the case, as a range of options exist that allow you to get the support that you need with the comfort that you desire. In fact, there are several companies that offer sandals with removable footbeds and, even better, companies that manufacture flip-flops that include a prefabricated orthotic. In this post, we’re going to look at why you should consider adding a pair of orthotic sandals to your closet this summer.
1. Greater support
Orthotic sandals provide more support, better cushion your heels and help to realign the feet. Without this, you risk serious – and painful – issues, including plantar fasciitis.
2. Good on your feet
Since they realign your feet, orthotic shoes can help to resolve a range of foot issues that you’re experiencing and, over time, help to alleviate foot pains and ongoing discomfort.
3. Better blood flow
Especially if you are diabetic, orthotic shoes allow your feet more breathing room. As a result, blood flow increases, pain decreases and the effects of diabetic neuropathy can be lessened.
4. Increased comfort
Chronic foot pain due to foot-related issues, including plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, can make walking a painful, unpleasant experience. Orthotic sandals provide a looser, more comfortable fit that alleviates the effects of these issues and increases comfort.
