(HealthDay News) -- If you're struggling with foot or leg pain, consider a pair of shoe inserts to provide extra support.
Here are different types of inserts and potential benefits, courtesy of the American Podiatric Medical Association:
- Arch supports, which can offer extra support to the arch area.
- Insoles that offer extra cushion and support for your feet.
- Heel liners (also called cups or pads) that cushion your heels. These can be helpful for older people who have lost some natural padding.
- Foot cushions that offer protection against a rubbing shoe.
