PODIATRIST EXPLAINS HOW ARCH SUPPORTS WORK

“Arch supports are not meant to do the work for the foot,” Diane Koshimune, DPM, a California-based podiatrist, told Well+Good. “Instead, the arch supports are going to offer feedback for the foot to ‘train’ the person wearing the supports to avoid pronating or over-pronating as the hard plastic or other material presses into the bone along the arch.

This action over time will help the person fire the appropriate muscles and stand with better posture, so to speak, so that in the future those arch supports are no longer needed.”
