Do they cure flat feet for good if wearing for long time?

Thanks! And, do you have one on supination? It’s so hard to find supportive shoe. My first and only podiatrist didn’t even recognize it so he just caused me a lot of pain until I figured out what it was and have been in shoes with even toe and heal heights, when I can find them.

Thanks so much!

Instead of arch supports, develop the muscles in the foot. Start with “short foot exercise.” Wear natural footwear....

I find that how will arch support works depends on the shoes they are in.

I applaud your remarks on custom orthotics; they’re a key revenue stream for podiatrists. Having worked in the shoe biz that measured arches—not just the foot lengths, thicker off-the-shelf orthotics or custom ones make the shoe too small (by at least a half-size), continuing pain to the wearer. I’ve never known of a custom orthotic-selling podiatrist who actually measures the patient’s arches and compares that to the actual size of the shoes that the patient is wearing.

I have been sick 19 years and was wheel chair bound because of medical malpractice for 5 yeas. It is so refreshing and so uplifting to hear honest physicians which are more interested in the health and overall wellbeing of people than senseless moneymaking. There is a way t make money, to have a successful career without having to turn patients into ATM' s. Thank you for the time and effort you put into your videos, thank you for your help, God bless.

I had custom made ones over 20 years ago! They did nothing but give trouble and breaking my shoes!
10 years ago I got 3 different sizes Vasyli insoles to match different shoes it was straight away helping my sore knees!
My ankle is playing up with a swelling and lots of pain so I am going to dig up those insoles and see what they can do for me 😊
Also a few year's ago i bought some 5 finger shoes!
They are just Heaven to walk on!(mostly at home and on the beach.)

I’ve spent hundreds on custom orthotics... Walk Fit are the best and they have the pop outs of low,med,& high. They used to have a commercial that showed a huge truck run over the support and it still held its form & I was sold.... been using them for years so much support for about 29.99!

I've had to deal with my flat feet for 59 years and have never been able to find an arch support that did not hurt. I have to be careful not to buy sandals or flip flop with arches.

I always wonder if arch supports are a “symptoms” fixer and not a “problem” solver? So, it sounds like flat arches are in someway an abnormality of the foot and body. Can this “problem” be addressed through PT and other means or are arch supports the only answer? Sorry Bob and Brad, but this video doesn’t seem very “Physical Therapy”.

EXCELLENT TOPIC and presentation (as always)!
Please please please talk about the 3 arches! My arch at base of my toes, is so flat and I SUFFER from pain constantly! It’s SO difficult to find any insole support SPECIFICALLY for the “transverse arch”, which is just behind the line of where your toes start! My entire foot is collapsing and this arch hurts so much! PLEASE address this issue as no other PT’s or other Youtube videos do! Thanks so much!

I'd like to comment on the statement at 8:00 about why some supports are rigid. It's because plantar fasciitis can be caused by the arch caving in and stretching the tendon where it connects to the heel causing inflammation. The rigidness keeps the arch in place so the arch doesn't collapse. This info is from my podiatrist years ago as I was getting that terrible foot pain in the heel. A good pair of shoes helped me because the arch support is very good and seems to hold up really well. The brand is Merrell and it took me a long time to find them. I tried those inserts but they wound up being too thick and hurting my foot. Thanks for your videos!!!

I have issues with my Achilles tendon and I have used the over the counter arch support. At one time I had 3 different types in each shoe. I had to have bone spurs taken out. Years later I finally went to a real foot dr and he had a pair made for me. OMG. The difference my feet felt was unreal. Iam so thankful that he had done that for me. I will never buy over the counter supports again. Heart video guys.

If you agree, then could you address how arch supports should be used as a temporary band-aid vs a permanent solution? And what I mean by that is that we should be doing things to strengthen our feet - the earlier in life the better - instead of waiting for them to develop problems which require artificial objects to provide support where our muscles should be doing the job already.


Things you can do to strengthen your feet:
- Go barefoot as often as possible. You don't have to get into barefoot running, but simply going around the house barefoot, walking around barefoot at a park you know to be safe, or walking and/or jogging at the beach barefoot in the sand are all things that can help build up the muscles in your feet.


FYI, hardly any podiatrist will agree with this because strong and healthy feet aren't money makers. I strongly believe that most schools of podiatry teach their students to deal with the feet of those whose feet have gotten to the point of no return and maybe need support. What's unfortunate is that many of these same podiatrists will put younger people in things like orthotics instead of teaching them how to build their feet back to where they should be. There are a few good podiatrists out there though (Dr. Ray McClanahan at CorrectToes and Dr. Emily Splichal at Evidence Based Fitness Academy to name a couple). I'm not saying there's never a need for orthotics and things of that nature, but checkout pages like MovNat, Evidence Based Fitness Academy, and The Foot Collective on Facebook and tell me if you think those people will ever need an orthotic.


- I've been slacking a lot lately, but I have one of those plastic totes that you put your holiday stuff in and I put 100 lbs of rice in it. Then, I can sink my bare feet in and do things like ankle rotations and toe scrunches using the rice as resistance.


- You can also use things like those wobble disc you see in gyms sometimes. When I wasn't being a slacker, I would stand on those while doing things like bicep curls. It helps a lot with your proprioception. When you get more advanced, you can stand on these while doing squats.


So there are many things we can do to strengthen our feet, but most of us are just too lazy to put forth the effort. I wish I would have been into the barefoot fitness stuff when I first joined the military. Believe me, nearly 20 years in combat boots and me not knowing much about foot health has taken a toll on my feet and ankles. I have chronic pain in my right foot / right ankle, but there for a while when I was doing all the barefoot stuff, all that pain was at a minimal. I'm trying to work my way back to where I was, but it's definitely a slower process now that I'm in my 40's than it was a decade ago.

I run a Facebook group called Barefoot 4 Life that has some great info on it. There's some woo woo there every now and then, but I try to keep all of that out. The group isn't very active, but I've posted some great articles on there over the years.


Sorry for the long post.

Raised heels are good for you, huh? I'm disappointed Bob and Brad. I really like your channel but that is nonsense. The tribes who still walk barefoot barely have any structural issues. Of course they're moving all day which is good but would also amplify the stress related joint issues, right? Wrong. Because they walk over the ball of the foot and not the heel like our shoes with raised heels train us to.

Edit you just said that you changed your running style so how can you still recommend people raise their heels even further?

Cork, from arts n craft center in Walmart... buy cork... take out crappy factory insole, copy insole over cork... customize the cork insert to fit tightly into shoe or sneaker, but b careful, cork breaks easily... but the shoe won’t stink and hopefully the cork thickness is close to the thickness of half a pencil

My ankle fallen over when I walk all the shoe insert does is cause soars on the top of my foot cus my foot is just higher in the shoe yet still flopping over I have hip problems because of my feet. I have high arch that appears flat cus the ankle rolls over until the inner ankle just about hits the floor. A podiatrist said flat feet but I thought she was wrong paid my bill and never went back to the fruit no off the shelf arch support helped only caused more foot pain or caused new knee pain

Honestly, I've been wearing a rigid custom orthotic for about a year. I have less knee pain, my balance is better, I don't trip while walking on flat surfaces any more. I have less hip pain and less back pain. I no longer get arthritic pain across the instep or heel pain. My feet feel as good at bedtime as they do when I get up, instead of feeling tired and like I've been walking on the stumps of my ankles. I don't know why, but they are right for me. I had tried every good prefab orthotic available and they either did nothing or made things worse. I might just be that I have a great doctor, but I expect to wear custom orthotics for the rest of my life. I did have a break in period. My right ankle had some mild to moderate pain for the first few months. But that ankle had been severely sprained a couple of times when I was in my 20s and I suspect I had developed some bad walking habits as a result and the discomfort was a matter of retraining the muscles around the ankle. Sadly, insurance companies don't like to pay for custom orthotics and mine set me back about $450. Perhaps conventional wisdom needs to consider that while the commercially available orthotics may be absolutely wonderful for most of us, there are indeed some of us for whom a custom orthotic does make all the difference.

I appreciate the topic as I was born with flat feet. I caution any ladies from getting a support that has a little 'heel' on the bottom rather than a heel cup becaue the little heel (that is often found on custom supports) just pushes your heel up and then you will need heel grips to keep your shoes on.

Had true flat feet (71yo) all my life without any negative symptoms. None. When I was a child, they put all kinds of arch supports in my shoes and the pain was unbearable. Even now, I avoid shoes that have a built-in arch support for the same reason. My legs, joints and knees are in perfect condition according to my doctor. Walking and standing for prolonged periods of time - no problem! Dr. Scholl full gel insole inserts (without arch supports) are more than sufficient for increased comfort and cushioning.

Padding only under your heels can backfire big time. You can end up with toe pain (metatarsalgia) fifty times worse than the heel pain was. You're better off in the long term with equal padding under your entire foot if you have heel pain.
