Orthotics can come in handy when you are very active, especially if you play sports. Lynco Orthotics has a line of insoles that cater to athletes. Their L400 Series orthotics are designed specifically for athletic feet. Notice the difference between each model, as each model in this series offers different features. I will break down some of these features to help you determine whether or not your feet require these components or not.
- Neutral Heel – No heel modifications whatsoever
- Metatarsal Pad – Offers support for the balls of the feet
- Posted Heel – correct pronation issues, this is typically prescribed by a podiatrist
- Orthotic – arch support, comfort and cushioning
Make sure you pick an insole that has the features you need. An orthotic will support your arches and cushioning in the right spots. If you have pain in the balls of your feet, make sure the insole has a metatarsal pad. If you have been prescribed a posted heel before, then you will want an insole that has it. Otherwise, stay away from posted heel insoles if you do not require them. As with all orthotics, it will take some time for your feet to adjust so make sure you give your feet ample time to get used to your new Lynco Orthotics.
