Knee, heel pain and foot pain is a prevalent issue mainly seen in people that walk for a long long period of time. You will often feel sharp pain around the ankle area or bottom of the feet when walking or at rest.
One of the main causes of this problem comes from inappropriate shoes styles and sizes.
There are so many stresses being put on your feet and calf in general. Moreover, this type of problem can also come from minor things in life, mainly wearing improper shoes.
So how can you do your daily activities without worrying about foot pain?
First of all, check your shoes size
Wearing tight shoes can cause pressure on the joints of the foot, it tightens up your muscles and ligaments. This will cause your foot to stiffen over time. Shoes should fit your feet comfortably with a bit room for movement.
Don’t ask others to buy shoes or buy them online without trying them on first. Each brand has different scales of size measurement. You know your size but there will be always be variations from each brand and model. It is best to try shoes out in person and make sure that there are comfortable spaces between your toes.
Another thing that you should remember is choosing shoes at the end of the day will be the most accurate because after a whole day of pressure and movement, your feet will actually reach their largest size due to stretching of the ligaments and tendons.
Do not rush when choosing shoes
Spend time carefully trying new shoes. Make sure they do not tighten your arch and toes to prevent joints subluxation or imbalances.
Pay attention to shoe material
Soft material comes first in priority, it will put less pressure on your feet to help prevent foot pain. The insole should be soft and reactive to pressure. Now you can even find memory foam insoles for that extra comfortable shoe fit.
Do not over look the sole when buying shoes as well
It should not be too smooth because it can lead to slips and falls that cause serious injuries. Therefore, shoes soles that are designed to rub against the floor for more traction should be chosen to avoid falls.
Furthermore, shoes with very thin soles will not support your ankles and feet properly. Wearing them for a long time can cause foot pain and other muscle / joint problems. Using an added insole would be an effective solution.
