Foot pain is quite common and can be the result of several underlying problems. Treatment of foot pain, regardless of the cause, often begins with more accommodating footwear. Shoe inserts are often helpful as well. Here are a few products that don't cost too much, but often help relieve different types of foot pain.
treatment of plantar fasciitis, but overall, I find most patients like the heel cups the best. The gel heel cups provide padding directly over the area of most pain. By slightly elevating the hindfoot they also help reduce pressure on the plantar fascia. Be sure to wear them in all of your shoes (work and exercise).
overpronation and flatfoot. In some cases a custom orthotic may be needed, but for most patients, a "off the shelf" arch support is appropriate. Arch supports probably don't alter foot mechanics (as some sellers may claim), but they can alleviate symptoms in some patients. Spenco has a good product line and are reasonably priced--custom orthotics can cost hundreds of dollars and may not be much better.
