Choosing footwear for arthritic feet
Posted on April 26 2019
Those suffering with arthritis know that stiffness, swelling and joint pain are unfortunately part of the deal. When it comes to the feet, many forms of arthritis can commonly affect the small joints in toes, ankles and feet making it difficult to walk and carry out daily activities, and sometimes your feet can even change shape.
While there is no cure for arthritis, your doctor will assess your condition and suggest a treatment plan that works for you. Together with your doctor’s advice, there are choices you can make that may help relieve the pain associated with arthritis.
Shifting extra kilos is one of the best ways to take the pressure off your feet, exercise will keep your joints flexible and your choice of footwear can also help alleviate pain in the feet.
First, look for support footwear that are already podiatrist approved and recommended. Shock absorption, arch support and grip are all important to consider when choosing footwear. As is ease and comfort. Look for a shoe that is lightweight and molds to your foot. Better yet, find a support shoe that has a snug fitting strap to hug the shoe to your sole.
Orthotic support shoes can help assist with arthritic pain management and help you Relax Ya Feet.
