Frequently Asked Questions
How does proper arch support and shock absorption assist in preventing foot pain during pregnancy?
One of the core functions of insoles for pregnancy is to support your arches. This can be done via stabilisation of the heel and helping with weight distribution. Through the aid of the insole’s cradle supporting your heel, maternity insoles can stabilise and prevent your body from skewing in one direction, leading to excessive Pronation. The concept of shock absorption isn’t specific to insoles but the desired outcome is the same: minimising impact. Absorbing the shock caused by walking/exercise and general changes to the body during pregnancy means less pressure on your joints & tendons – which means less pain in your feet, ankles, shins and calves.
