Insoles for pain. Do they really help in the long term? The basis for a functioning system lies in its origin, in its foundation – in the feet.

The pain relieving expert answers the question today: Insoles for pain. Do they really help in the long term? The basis for a functioning system lies in its origin, in its foundation – in the feet. So the question of whether it makes sense is essential, isn’t it?

Can it be that something that supports leads to freedom from complaints in the long term? Have the eyes ever become better when wearing glasses, i.e. back to + / – 0 dioptin? And I’ll answer a few important questions along the way. Shall we go?

The holy grail. Insoles to stabilise the foot. There are different types of insoles. Insoles to prevent the ankle from bending, for example, or the arch of the foot is too flat because the natural arch has disappeared over the years… What does the body do, since thousands of years, when a support is used? Because the body is no longer so challenged at this point, the surrounding tissue becomes weaker.

An example: The arm is broken. The arm is fixed with a sling or in a plaster cast. How does the arm look after just a few days of immobility? Pale. Thin. Powerless. Why? If parts of the body are no longer exercised or used, this is a signal for the brain to use less energy here – because the structure is still maintained, even with less energy supply. The part that should actually be spared and thus relieved becomes even weaker, even more unstable and even more susceptible to injuries and thus to pain.

Oh… I can see people coming towards me with pitchforks and torches as I look out of the window…. 🙂😉 They scream at me. Let´s hear, what they have to say:

“What else am I supposed to do? I’m in pain! “

They shout. “And that’s not true what you’re saying, since I got the insoles it’s at least got a bit better. So shut the fuck up.”

And how long do you plan to live a pain-free life? I suppose until the end, right? Pain-free, then. And pain-free you are not. You just don’t notice the pain as much. Am I not right? The voices are getting quieter. 🙂

How long did it take you to notice the pain in your feet and get an insole? Do you have infinite time to solve the problem like that? Do you want to spend the same amount of time trying it out with insoles, even though you already know that it will make things worse?

Oh, I see some torches are already being extinguished. 🙂

“But is anything better, I have less pain, that’s a good thing, isn’t it?”

I suppose it’s known that people get older. And regeneration decreases with age. Things that a person could do 5-10 years ago, without thinking, are no longer possible today, right? In addition, a new dependency has been created through insoles. So it tends to get worse with age. And freedom from pain is still not there.

Oh… the screaming has stopped completely, the pitchforks have been lowered and the torches all extinguished. 🙂

A man steps forward and asks: “What would you do?”

I would get to the bottom of the cause and work on flexibility and strengthening the feet, for example, I reply.

Has wearing glasses ever made one’s eyes function 100% again without glasses? Isn’t it rather the case that the eyes get worse and worse, I started with -2 dioptres. Today I am at -3.5.

“But how? And will that help in the long run? ”

To the first question: I’ll show you. To the second question: That is very probably possible, I answer.

I am waiting for your call. I turn around and leave.

Until the next time.

Stay strong.
