Suggestions for the right fit

(HealthDay News) -- Shoe inserts can ease the pain of flat feet and other foot ailments, while providing comfort and cushioning.

The American Podiatric Medical Association offers these suggestions for buying shoe inserts:

  • If you have health problems that can affect circulation, such as diabetes, consider a prescription orthotic from your doctor.
  • Consider what you plan to do (walk, run or just perform daily activities) and choose an insert to meet your needs.
  • Bring the shoes you'll wear with the inserts and be sure they fit well.
