Health Tip: Shoe Inserts May Help Pain

If your feet tilt inward or you have foot pain for another reason, shoe inserts may help tame discomfort.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says types of shoe inserts include:

  • Arch supports to help counter high or low arches.
  • Plastic, gel or foam inserts that provide cushioning and support.
  • Heel cups, pads or liners that cushion the heels, particularly in older people who have lost some of the heel’s natural fatty padding.
  • Cushions that provide a barrier between shoes and the heels and toes.
