It is not enough the physician to appoint insoles and send the patient home. After one month use the patient must appear on a control check. Very often is needed re adjust the insole.

To achieve the best therapeutic effect, we must be aware of what is actually required by the insoles, and it is:

• To support the arches of the foot in order to eliminate muscle and joint insufficiency complaints;

• Raise and correct the arches of the deformed feet. Prevention of recurrences of the treated in different ways deformities of the foot;

• Leveling the burden on different parts of planta pedis, and also alleviation of congested and painful foot areas;

• Facilitation of individual sectors in the forefoot when scrolling;

• With the insole may be affected partly the direction of scrolling of the foot;

From the insole cannot be required anymore. If this is not the desired effect, you need to switch to orthopedic footwear or other orthopedic equipment.

Besides insoles there are the so-called pads. Unlike the orthopedic insoles the pads for the foot are mainly with preventive purpose. Only in a few cases can there be a therapeutic agent, but they must be adjusted individually.

Orthopedic shoes

The orthopedic shoe is a therapeutic agent that is prescribed by an orthopedic. Made individually for the patient with a defective foot, mostly by hand.

The orthopedic shoe not only dresses the foot, but also does important orthopedic activities such as installation, ability to relax, supporting, equalization of defects, corrections, immobilization of the joints, facilitation of scrolling of the foot and more.

Orthopedic master cobbler is required to work with the doctor who prescribes the shoes. If the orthopedic master works alone, without medical supervision, it is very likely to make mistakes.
