Bunions

Bunions are formed when the big toe (Hallux Valgus) is crooked or bent, causing the bone in the joint to stick out to the side or top. This will create a bump on the inside of the foot or on top of the big toe joint. Click here to go to Support Plus. They offer shoes and accessories for men and women with foot health conditions.

Fallen Arches/Flat Feet

Fallen arches or “flat feet” are caused by over-pronation, walking on the inside of the foot instead of across the foot. This puts pressure on the wrong areas of the foot which can cause many problems from metatarsal and heel pain to problems with the knees and lower back. Click here to go to Support Plus.

Hammer Toes

A hammer toe is when one toe is always in a bent position. This can cause irritations such as corns and calluses from toes rubbing together or rubbing against the toe. Click here to go to Support Plus. They offer shoes and accessories for men and women with foot health conditions.

Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Spurs

Plantar fasciitis is when the ligament in the heel (plantar fasciae) is stretched the wrong way and swelling occurs. Heel spurs form when a person changes the way they would normally walk to compensate for the existing pain. Click here to go to Support Plus.

Many things can cause pain to the metatarsal or ball of foot area; shoes that don’t fit properly, causing more pressure to that area, or excessive running or jumping are common causes. The ball of foot absorbs the full shock from walking or running instead of being distributed throughout the foot. Click here to go to Support Plus.

Corns and Calluses

Corns, on or between toes and calluses, on the bottom of the foot are areas of skin that thicken and harden to protect against friction. These areas can become very painful and make it difficult to walk. Click here to go to Support Plus. They offer shoes and accessories for men and women with foot health conditions.

Pronation (Ankle Valgus)

Pronation, or heel roll-in, is associated with flat feet or fallen arches. This can be caused in several ways, among them weak ankle muscles which allow the ankle and arch to roll inward while walking or running, causing the arch to collapse or flatten. This misdirects the impact forces on your feet and can cause foot pain as well as ankle and lower-back pain. Click here to go to Support Plus.

Supination (Ankle Varus)

Supination, or heel roll-out, is similar to pronation except the heel and ankle roll outward. This is also largely due to weak ankles and requires a shoe with long heel counters, wide shank areas, and flared outsoles. Click here to go to Support Plus.
