Orthopedic Shoe Terminology

Orthopedic footwear is available to treat a variety of conditions. It is the best option for people with diabetes or other consistent issues. Stylish options are available for everyone, from kids to adults. Following are some common terms associated with orthopedic issues and footwear.

  • Orthopedic Inserts – Orthopedic inserts can be used to line the interior of virtually any stylish shoe you own. This option can be great for kids since they will quickly grow out of expensive orthopedic shoes. Inserts can be cheap, though the price will depend on the medical condition they are designed to treat. Inserts are available to treat everything from fallen arches to arthritis and can be purchased at many retail stores. For more severe conditions, consider purchasing orthopedic footwear recommended by your doctor.
  • Athletic Footwear – Athletic footwear is a collective term for all types of shoes or boots worn by athletes. The individual athlete’s need determines the necessary support. Inserts are often helpful to deal with occasional swelling or pain.
  • Diabetic Footwear – Men, women, and even children with diabetes can suffer from poor circulation. Orthopedic footwear is the best choice for diabetics. The interior of the shoe has small nubs, like the bottoms of cleats, that encourage circulation.
  • Footwear for Flatfeet – Flatfooted is a term that describes feet that lack sufficient arches. This can cause pain in the ankles and knees. Inserts are a less expensive option, though they may not be as effective.
  • Footwear for Hammertoe and Bunions – Hammertoe and bunions both involve swelling of the feet or toe joints. Women who wear high heels frequently are particularly at risk for these conditions. Footwear for sufferers of hammertoe or bunions is wider and has extra cushioning to alleviate symptoms.
