Pain Relief Solutions

Foot Pain
Your foot is a complex network of bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. As it has the burden of carrying your entire body weight, your foot is prone to injuries and pain. Foot pain can have a severe impact on the quality of people's lives.
Conditions
Injury, overuse, or any other dynamics that result in inflammation of any part of the foot's structure can result in various pain-causing foot conditions. Below is a list of the most common ones. Click on the links below for more information and how Good Feet arch supports are designed to offer pain relief for each.
 
 
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Good Feet's 3-Step System is uniquely suited for people dealing with the pain and discomfort often times caused by these conditions by providing support from the very first step of the day, until the very last.
 
Heel Pain
The heel bone is the largest bone in the foot. Designed to carry the weight of the body, the heel is the first point of impact, absorbing step shock as we walk and run. As a result, heel pain is extremely common. Over time, consistent heel pain may cause a change in how a person stands and walks, which may then affect the knees, hips and back.
 
Symptoms
Heel pain often involves a fairly constant and dull ache, with episodes of a sharp pain in the center or on the inside margin of the heel. Pain along at the back of the heel where the Achilles tendon connects is also common.
 
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Arch supports may help minimize heel pain in a number of ways. By supporting and stabilizing the four arch structure of the foot, stress and hyperextension of the muscles and ligaments in the foot can be reduced.
  
Ankle Pain
The ankle is one of the most important joints in the human body. Designed to support the skeletal structure above, the ankle is essential to our ability to walk, run, jump and get around with ease. Made up of only three bones, the ankle is one of the most commonly injured joints in the human body.
Symptoms
A large majority of ankle pain occurs as a result of sports injuries. Ankle pain often involves tenderness, swelling and/or stiffness of the ankle joint. Pain upon weight-bearing and while walking are also common.
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Structural imbalances of the foot and poor biomechanics can cause significant ankle pain.Good Feet arch supports help to properly support the four arches of the foot, helping to realign the skeletal system relieving stress and pressure on the ankle.
 
Knee Pain
 Knee pain is incredibly common. Knee pain can be localized to a specific part of the knee, or may be diffused throughout the knee joint. Over pronation or excessive supination in the feet can change the position of the ankle, and is often the cause of common knee pain.
Symptoms
Knee pain often restricts a person’s mobility. Depending on the cause, knee pain can be mild to severe, disabling pain. Tenderness, swelling and stiffness of the knee joint may cause instability of the joint, making it difficult to engage in daily activities such as walking and going up and down stairs.
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Stabilizing the structure of the foot with Good Feet arch supports helps to maintain the ankle in a more neutral position, reducing pressure and stress on the knee joint.
 
Leg Pain
Leg pain can be something as simple as a mild nagging ache that comes and goes, or it can be debilitating. Leg pain can happen at almost any time, including at night, while resting or during exercise. Pain in the legs can make it difficult to engage in everyday activities and to sleep. Leg pain can originate from a number of sources, including the feet.
Symptoms
Because the leg contains a number of different structures, symptoms will differ depending on the cause. However, weakness, numbness, cramping, aching, and tingling sensations are among the most common.
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Structural imbalances in the foot may affect the position of the ankles and knees. When these joints are out of alignment – even a little – the muscles in the leg must work harder to help keep those joints in a neutral position and maintain body balance. Good Feet arch supports are designed to stabilize the structure of the foot and realign the skeletal system, which can help take the strain off joints and the sciatic nerve.
  
Hip Pain
Proper support of the complex, four-arch structure of the foot can help maintain the entire skeletal system in a more neutral position, enhance body biomechanics, help joints function more naturally, and aid muscles through the legs and into the hip area to work more efficiently.
Symptoms
People with hip pain – depending on the cause – may feel discomfort in the thigh, groin, inside or outside of the hip and buttocks. Pain may get worse with activity, and can cause limited range of motion. Changes in how the hip functions can also lead to a limp, which over time may affect the back.
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Stabilizing the structure of the foot, with Good Feet arch supports, can help to improve biomechanics and realign the skeletal system reducing stress and pressure on the hips while walking or running.
 
Back Pain
Making up only 2% of the body, our feet balance and support the other 98%. So, it’s no surprise that structural imbalances in the foot can cause strain on the muscles from the ground up. Lower back pain is second only to the common cold as a cause of lost days at work.
Symptoms
While many people may experience the occasional dull ache or tightness after standing or sitting for long periods of time, others experience the chronic sharp nagging pain of sciatica. And, muscle spasms in the back may come on suddenly making it difficult to stand upright.
Our Pain Relief Solutions
Good Feet arch supports are designed to help stabilize the foundation of the body – your feet. When the arches in the foot are aligned with a properly fitted arch support, the skeletal system is in better alignment and body balance may improve – reducing pressure on the sciatic nerve and undue stress on muscles through the legs into the lower back.
