Three Essential Products to Help Prevent Foot Pain



Inspired by warmer weather, Australians are embracing more physical activity. To help you enjoy your favourite activities pain-free, The Good Feet Store and Dr Pamela Mehta, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and recreational athlete, share three recommendations to provide comfort and improve body mechanics.

 

"Foot mechanics affect your whole body, especially the lower extremity joints, such as the ankles, knees, hips and back, and therefore your total alignment," explains Dr Mehta.


"When the feet are not properly supported, the body can become misaligned, leading to frequent aches, pain and inflammation, which can hinder an active lifestyle. There are simple, unexpected tools that people of all ages should consider to ensure greater overall comfort."


Invest in personally fitted arch supports. When it comes to supporting your feet, softer and cushier doesn't necessarily mean better. If you're planning to spend time on your feet, you need more structure to align your feet in the proper position and support the foot's four aches. Personally fitted arch supports can be a real game-changer and one of the

best self-care investments you can make. Available in more than 300 sizes and styles, Good Feet Arch Supports are designed to promote stability and alleviate strain in the feet and lower extremity joints, leading to more comfort, stronger performance and reduced pain. Not having the proper support can often lead to common foot ailments, such as

plantar fasciitis or metatarsalgia.


Practice in compression socks. Compression socks can provide support and relief to previous foot and ankle injuries by enhancing blood flow to the legs. A smart choice is OS1st Compression Socks, which utilise Compression Zone Technology® ranging from light to firm levels to offer the orthopaedic benefits of a bracing device, which can help prevent further damage.


Massage, stretch and pamper your feet daily. At the end of the day, it's important to stretch and strengthen your foot muscles, providing increased stability, balance and foot function. The Foot Gym by OS1st is a handy, all-in-one tool that easily facilitates several foot exercises and can rehab those suffering from plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, and other foot injuries.
