Not that we’re quite as different as these animals, but¬†Keravita Pro Review¬† all too often, t-shirts or hats or (heaven forbid) shoes that are produced with the ‘one size fits all’ mentality fit a very few somewhat well, but are voluminous for some, and way too tiny for others. Or the size is right, but the cut of the thing is all wrong. Perhaps products like this should be known as ‘one size fits most badly.’ The truth is that, while our bodies are all pretty much human-shaped, we have substantial differences between individuals.
These differences are significant enough that mass-produced clothing or footwear can be uncomfortable, or worse, damaging. This is especially true of foot orthoses. Orthotics really need to be calibrated to your specific foot in order to work well. It’s like getting a prescription for glasses. You wouldn’t give everyone who’s nearsighted the same eyeglasses, would you? Of course not! And just as optometrists need to evaluate people’s eyesight to determine the specific eyeglass shapes that are right for them, so too do trained podiatrists need to evaluate patients’ feet to design orthotics that fit their needs.
Feet are kind of funny things, though. They need to be flexible in order to adapt to changes in terrain (a state known as pronation), and they also need to be rigid in order to give us leverage as we take a step (a state known as supination). The problem is that many people have trouble with over-pronation of their feet. This is probably due to our being, as a whole, a bit (ahem) larger and less active, which leads to more downward stress on the feet, and also to the harder flooring we tend to be exposed to. When the ligaments of our feet have stretched out from this stress, they can no longer provide the rigid structure needed in supination.
