orthopedic insoles DIABETIC

DIABETIC - Diabetic foot syndrome

Too high blood sugar with the lack of proper therapy is the cause of serious changes in small (microangiopathy) and large (macroangiopathy) walls of blood vessels. These changes affect their permanent damage and, as a result, the increased susceptibility to cardiovascular disease. Damage to small vessels results, among others, in impaired function of the nervous system, which is manifested by pain, sensory disorders, and limb numbness. However, the result of damage to large blood vessels is, for example, one of the most common and most serious complications of diabetes, that is, diabetic foot syndrome.

Diabetic foot syndrome is a disease characterized by insufficient blood circulation of the feet, impaired sensation in the foot while feeling the burning, tingling, and burning. Chronic tissue hypoxia causes them to die - swellings, clots, ulcers, and cracks are formed, nails deform, and the whole foot is blue. A weakening of muscle tension and bone or joints causes necrosis and deformity that prevents walking.

The diabetic foot affects from a few to a dozen or so percent of patients. Its treatment is difficult, long, and expensive, but effective. When untreated, leads to irreversible deformation and necrosis of the foot, which can result in amputation.
A very important element of treatment and the main method of conservative treatment is relieving the foot. Suitable footwear and orthopedic insoles that relieve the forefoot and heel are used for this purposes. Feet deprived of sensation in ill-fitting footwear without a properly selected orthopedic insole is one of the most common causes of diabetic ulceration.

The insoles are made of well-cushioned materials, absorbing shocks, soft to be able to "remember" the shape, and with the appropriate density and elasticity which is similar to the elasticity of soft tissue from the bottom, the plantar side of our feet.
For the production of our orthopedic insoles, we use best materials, originating from the LEADERS of European manufacturers. Thanks to numerous clinical tests and researches, they have certificates and attestations that allow our insoles to enter the market as medical products.

 

orthopedic insoles FLAT FEET

Flat feet - types

  1. The transverse flat feet are a frequent feet defect. It is not treated as a health problem until it is accompanied by pain. In contrast, metatarsalgia is considered a disease; it is a burning pain under the metatarsal heads and degenerative-inflammatory changes of the nerves running between the metatarsal bones.
  2. Longitudinal flat feet are caused by the weakening of the long muscles of the foot, failure of the ligamentous and muscular apparatus, as well as lack of movement, overweight, standing work, or improper footwear. As a result of all this, our foot does not have the proper inner arch. It is easy to recognize by the condition of the worn footwear, which results in a cut inner part of the sole. At the valgus-flat foot, that is, the longitudinal flat feet, the shock absorption function is disturbed, which is why the foot gets tired very quickly, there is a swelling and unpleasant pain within it that also affects the calves, knees, and hips.
  3. The longitudinal transverse flat feet are a phenomenon when both types of flat feet occur together. The end result is the reduced elasticity of the foot, calf pain, walk becomes swaying and fatigue occurs quickly. Flat feet can cause many other ailments - from a headache to back problems.

Flat feet: acquired or congenital defect?

The laxity of ligaments and joint capsules is congenital, however, transverse flat feet are very often acquired. Characteristic external symptoms include calluses (excessively keratinized epidermis resulting from long-lasting pressure), bunions, and valgus fingers.

Treatment of irregularities involves regular exercises, foot gymnastics, and wearing of orthopedic insoles. Sometimes, however, if the foot is very deformed, a surgery is necessary.
In addition, let's remember about prevention - we should avoid overweight and take care of the good physical condition.
Always follow the rule: the shoe is for the foot, not the foot for the shoe.

 

Orthopedic insoles forefoot relief WS model

Pain in the area of the forefoot is very often the result of arthritis. The lack of a protective layer under the heads of the metatarsal bones is a very common problem, for example, in the case of transverse flat feet or haluks. This results in an unpleasant burning sensation and pain after a long walk.

To relieve ailments arising from an overload of the forefoot, it is recommended to wear orthopedic insoles. They perfectly prevent the longitudinal and transverse arch from falling, they are a shock absorber for painful and sensitive feet. Removal of the disc from the front of the insole reduces the direct contact of the painful place with the footwear.

orthopedic insoles CALCANEAL SPUR

Calcaneal spur appears as a result of chronic inflammation in the region of the calcaneus. Degenerative changes in the calcaneus contribute to the formation of bone growth, which results in inflammation of the plantar aponeurosis and stabbing pain, limiting or sometimes preventing movement. Factors that create favorable conditions for the development of the disease include overweight, improperly healed injury, standing work, or old age. This disease is complicated to treat, so reducing the symptoms is a big achievement.

It is necessary to attend rehabilitation and, above all, use orthopedic insoles, which relieve stress in the heel area and minimize calcaneal pain. In more severe cases, surgery is required to remove the bone gland. However, this is a difficult treatment, the effects of which do not outweigh the results of conservative treatment. Prophylactically you should maintain normal body weight, avoid excessive foot loading, select shoes properly (elastic with a slightly thicker sole), and when moving, move the body weight on the forefoot bone.

orthopedic insoles SUPINATION

Supination is an inversion in other words. Supination orthodontic insoles are recommended for transverse and longitudinal flat feet or valgus positioning of knees and heels. A properly profiled shape of the insole stabilizes the heel and prevents the formation of flat feet. In addition, the metatarsal arch support restores the proper distribution of loads within the forefoot, reduces the pain caused by the fall of the forward arch of the foot and relieves the toes.

The need for a supination insole can be easily visualized. When in the sitting position the feet are approximate to each other, that is, the outer part of the foot is raised up, it is necessary to provide a supination insole.

There are:

  • supostation of the hindfoot, that is, elevation of the inner part of the sole under the heel, on 1/3 of the length and width of the insole
  • supination of the longitudinal arch, that is, support under the longitudinal arch also at the height of 1/3 of the length and width of the insole.
