Medial wedge insoles
Medial wedge insoles are inserts which are wedged along their inner side and placed inside the shoe to reduce over pronation at the foot.
What are medial wedge insoles?
Medial wedge insoles are devices which are used to correct excessive pronation which occurs at the foot and ankle by stabilising the foot and supporting the heel. A podiatrist will assess patients' symptoms and look for signs of over pronation before recommending the use of such insoles.
What podiatry related conditions can medial wedge insoles help with?
Medial wedge insoles can be used in the treatment of the following podiatry related conditions;
- Overpronation of the foot
- Medial ankle instability
- Plantar fasciitis
- Adult flat foot
- Lateral compartment knee syndrome
- Posterior tibial tendinopathy
How do medial wedge insoles work?
Medial wedge insoles work to control excessive inward movement at the foot and ankle during gait by aligning the heel bone, which may also in turn correct any misalignment of the lower limb. By placing the heel in a medially angled position, insoles can adjust the loading across the knee and ankle joint reducing the level of pain at the affected area.
What are the benefits of medial wedge insoles?
Medial wedge insoles are a common choice of treatment and are beneficial in the following ways;
- Insoles can be transferred from one pair of shoes to the next and can therefore be used at all times
- They provide the patient with relief from painful symptoms
- May be used as an alternative to medical or surgical treatment
- They are comfortable and effective
