Searching for foot pain relief can often be a daunting task, especially when you are faced with tons of choices for foot products. What is the difference between them all? Which ones are going to work and which ones are not? How do you know if you have chosen the right product? All of these questions come up when deciding to purchase anything so you know you are going to have these same questions when purchasing orthotics insoles and other foot pain relief products.
If you are looking to purchase a pair of orthotic insoles, here are some things to look for:
Arch Supports – if you have arch pain, this is most likely going to get rid of it for you
Heel Cups – if an insole has a heel cup, this means that the insole will help stabilize your feet to ensure that you are walking properly. Improper use of your feet can lead to pain. Heel cups can help align your foot and help to absorb the shock of each step.
Metatarsal Pads – this is a fancy term for pads that cater to the balls of your feet right where your toes connect to your foot. These pads help with pain by evenly distributing weight and adding extra cushioning.
Not every orthotics insoles has these features. Some with only offer the arch support, while others may have all three features. You should focus on areas that bother you after being on your feet, the extra bells and whistles can wait.

Wishing you a great Labor Day Weekend from LyncoOrthotics.org! You work hard, so it is time to play hard this weekend. Spend time with friends, family, co-workers and maybe even meet some new people. Be safe and have fun! You deserve it!
You may be asking yourself this questions, “Should I Try Orthotics?” if you are suffering from foot pain on a regular basis and massages, pedicures and soaks just don’t cut it. Foot pain can be obnoxious and ruin your days and nights, so we understand how you would be looking for a solution to your foot pain. You have probably discovered this blog in search for your foot pain solution. Orthotics, if you haven’t heard the term being thrown around before are devices that can be used to correct various problems with your feet that could be causing you regular discomfort and pain.
Orthotics, also commonly referred to as insoles, can correct a wide array of foot problems that could be causing your foot pain. Orthotics can help with heel pain, arch pain, ball of foot pain and toe pain. Orthotics can help with conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis and other painful foot conditions. Orthotics can help correct pronation and over-pronation by preventing the foot from rolling inward or outward too much. There are orthotics specifically designed for varying levels of activity from housewives to athletes.
So, could orthotics be a solution for you? The answer is Yes!
As you know, Lynco Orthotics is a subdivision of Aetrex. Aetrex produces shoes, insoles and socks – they pretty much cater to feet. They have a team of podiatrists that formulate and produce their feet products. This is great because you can trust that your foot health needs are kept in mind when the products are created. I believe their main goal is to make feet comfortable, supported and protected.
So I’m not an expert on orthotics by any means, but this is what I have picked up about the subject while reading, researching and using orthotic products. In a nutshell, orthotics are lumped into the insole category of foot health devices. Orthotics can describe an insole, arch support or cushion that does a number of things from relieving foot pain to fixing foot conditions.
So, why would you need an orthotic? Well, you could have been prescribed an orthotic by a podiatrist or doctor because of a foot condition such as flat feet or Plantar Fasciitis. You could also be suffering from foot pain. Foot pain occurs for a variety of reason but usually stems from the shoes you wear, the number of hours on your feet and your foots positioning during normal activities.
Orthotics shouldn’t be a scary word, but a reassuring one. If you are purchasing orthotics, then you are on your way to healthier happier feet.
