Health Tip: Shoe Inserts May Help Pain

Some popular types of inserts

(HealthDay News) -- If your feet tilt inward or you have foot pain for another reason, shoe inserts may help tame discomfort.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says types of shoe inserts include:

  • Arch supports to help counter high or low arches.
  • Plastic, gel or foam inserts that provide cushioning and support.
  • Heel cups, pads or liners that cushion the heels, particularly in older people who have lost some of the heel's natural fatty padding.
  • Cushions that provide a barrier between shoes and the heels and toes.
