Sever’s Disease: A Common Cause of Your Child’s Heel Pain
What is Sever's disease? Sever's disease occurs in children when the part of the heel that is still growing, the growth plate, is injured. The foot is one of the first body parts in children to grow to full size. Typically this occurs in early puberty. During this time, bones often grow faster than surrounding muscles and tendons. As a result, muscles and tendons will become tight. The heel area is less flexible than other areas of the body and can be easily injured. During weight-bearing activity (activity performed while standing), the tight heel tendons may put too much pressure at the back of the heel (where the Achilles tendon attaches) resulting in injury.

Orthaheel Orthotics Saved Me Hours of Time Running to the Chiropractor!

Orthaheel Shock Absorber Insoles

"Flat feet were zapping my energy during the day and I knew it because whenever I stood up, my feet would roll inward and begin hurting when I walked. My back and neck pain left me going to my chiropractor two and three times a week. One day I got up and said, "Enough of this nonsense! There is an answer and I know what it is. It's shoes and orthotics for overpronation."   I purchased a few new pairs of athletic shoes that felt great. But within two weeks, my feet didn't feel supported with them any longer. I ordered the best orthotics I could find - the Orthaheel Shock Absorber Insoles and they came within a few days. I couldn't wait to put them in the new shoes.   From the minute I started walking on them, my foot alignment was restored. All the fatigue from being out of alignment has left me completely. I also don't need as many chiropractor adjustments - and I'm a chiropractor myself!  I can go two to three weeks without an adjustment and feel great. I highly recommend these orthotics for anyone with flat feet, even if you did purchase new shoes. So glad these are on the market for us to take advantage of. There are so many solutions that are natural that will decrease our trips to the doctors!
Thanks Tyler and all the staff at The Insole Store - your efforts are changing lives and bringing energy, joy and solutions."

Hallux Limitus / Hallux Rigidus: How to Treat for Pain Relief
Hallux Rigidus and Hallux Limitus are the same foot disorder but at different stages of development.  The condition brings on limited motion to the big toe or a stiff toe.  When movement is restricted by a bone spur that restricts upper movement of the toe. When the joint is capable of motion, the condition is Hallux Limitus.  However, if left untreated, the condition advances to Hallux Rigidus or what's known as "Rigid Toe". This condition exists when the big toe is rigid.  That is, little to no motion is available. These conditions most commonly afflict people after the age of 30. Full Story
Arch Supports Help More Than The Feet

  Arch Supports are specially designed apparatus that are placed in shoes to provide additional support for the arch  of the foot. When people usually hear the word arch support a few things come to mind like the idea that they are only for flat feet, or are bulky and plastic like, and that they are only to be used  for existing foot pain.
