The Diafoot Orthotics Products

It is estimated that 20% of the population suffer from a condition called over-pronation due to flat feet>or fallen arches. This condition presents itself in varying degrees of severity, with some people over-pronating more than others.

The fact that so many of us suffer from over-pronation due to fallen arches can be contributed to the hard, flat surfaces we walk on daily. Other factors that play a role include age, weak ankles, and excess body weight . As a result, over-pronation is much more prevalent in people in their fifties and older, and also in overweight persons.

The Diafoot footwear orthotics correct the problem of over-pronation, and can help reduce or eliminate many common aches and pains. Orthotics are an effective and inexpensive solution to the over-pronation problem. Buying a The diafoot footwear of orthotics can be a worthwhile investment in your health, since they can prevent many serious lower body problems.

How Are The Diafoot Different From Regular Footwear




 

There’s a significant difference between regular insoles and orthotics. Regular insoles are purely designed to provide a cushioning effect and shock absorption. They may feel comfortable at first, however they do not address any biomechanical problems, i.e. they are not designed to correct over-pronation. On the other hand, orthotics are a functional device, designed to correct and optimize our foot function. Some insoles also feature an arch support, however they tend to be mostly made of soft materials. As a result, the support they provide is often too weak to have any effect

How do orthotics exactly work? First of all, orthotics do a lot more than support the arches. Orthotics realign the feet and ankles, and restore deficient foot function. In addition, orthotics enable a more even weight distribution, taking pressure off sore spots (e.g. the heels, the ball of the foot, corns in between toes, and bunions). They also provide some degree of shock absorption, but this is not their main purpose. The main purpose of an orthotic insole is to improve foot function, in many cases reducing pain and preventing serious problems.

The diafoot footwear help to correct many other lower body ailments, such as:
  • Heel Pain, Heel Spurs (Plantar Fasciitis)
  • Ball of Foot Pain
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Knee Pain
  • Lower Back Pain-and injuries in the future.

The Diafoot Diabetic and orthotic insoles were developed by foot specialists to provide longitudinal and metatarsal support, and to correct posture and body biomechanics. The Diafoot orthotics greatly reduce over-pronation, preventing foot strain and injury while providing much improved walking comfort.

The Diafoot unique design and material composition provides the ideal combination of support and cushioning, resulting in ultimate walking comfort and effective relief of common lower body aches and pains.
