Longview podiatrist Dr. Selwyn Willis says that orthotics serve two purposes, “to place the foot in a more pain-free position and to help with shock absorption.” Willis casts his patients for orthotics and evaluates them walking before prescribing a custom orthotic. While orthotics can help, Willis cautioned they are not a cure-all. “I’ve talked to people who say it helps with the pain and an equal number who say it doesn’t,” Willis said.

Willis also said when trying on shoes, buyers should look to see how well the shoe is made.“Take the shoe off and twist it around,” Willis said. “If you have a hard time twisting it, that’s a good shoe. This prevents pronation.” Pronation is where the foot rolls inward while walking or running, which can lead to injury. “The stiffer the shoe, the greater the control,” Willis said.
