Dealing With Common Foot Problems

If you have ever dealt with foot problems, such as recurring heel pain, arch pain or pain in the ball of your foot, you know the difficulty of finding comfortable footwear. Corns, Calluses, Bunions, Heel Spurs, Plantar Fasciitis and other foot problems can result in you having one foot that is slightly wider or longer than the other. Do you go up a size, buy a wider size or think about getting inserts, insoles or orthotics to correct these issues?

According to a study published in the Journal of Foot and Ankle Research1, between 63 and 72 percent of people in the U.S. are  wearing the wrong size shoe. Either the length of the shoe is too short, or the width is too narrow to comfortably accommodate your actual foot size. Are you one of the unlucky ones wearing ill-fitting and uncomfortable shoes?

With so many shoe options to choose from, it’s hard to decide what is the best choice for you and your feet. Many retail shoe stores, like Family Footwear Center, offer a variety of fitting services and take the time to find the best shoes for your unique feet. One of these specialty-fit services is Aetrex‘s Albert 3D foot scan.

Aetrex Quality Custom Orthotics

First, let's go over the top benefits of using Aetrex orthotics and inserts in your shoes, sneakers, boots and flats. Insoles help to evenly distribute pressure across your feet providing you with better stability and balance. Orthotics also help with arch support, provide overall cushioning and improve your posture - all of which can help lessen foot and back pain.

If you are looking for the ultimate in foot scanning technology, Aetrex Worldwide offers the perfect solution. The Aetrex Albert scanner not only scans the bottom of your feet, the state-of-the-art technology also does a complete, three dimensional scan of your feet and ankles.

Custom orthotics are specifically made to address the unique pressure points and profile of your feet. Aetrex translates the data captured in your scan to create a 3D custom printed orthotic that matches the precise size and shape of each foot.

If you are interested in this option, your sales associate will guide you through ordering your own pair of custom Aetrex Orthotics. You even have the option to have your orthotics delivered to either your local Family Footwear Center, or directly to your home.
