The difference between insole and orthosis


Insole and orthopedics are a popular solution for some foot-related problems that can be very effective in reducing pain and solving other body or posture problems. Although these two terms are often used interchangeably, they are different products that do different things, so it's important to make sure you don't use the wrong terminology.


Insoles, also known as inserts, are products you can find in pharmacies and other health stores. They are usually made of a soft gel material, and if they are designed to solve a specific problem, such as the collapse of arches, they may also have other forms of foam or plastic.

The insole provides cushioning and support for the foot, which relieves pain in two different ways. While this may provide some short-term relief, the insole is mass produced and designed to accommodate the widest possible range of people. So while they may help, they can only go so far in terms of the root cause of the problem. This means that these symptoms may persist and may worsen over time if not handled properly.


The aligner is similar to the insert, but there is one important difference that is custom made. Of course, this means that they are designed not only to solve the specific problems you face, but also to fit your feet perfectly, rather than being similar. This greatly improves their effectiveness in relieving pain and correcting existing problems.

Like the insole, the aligner can also be used to pad the foot, providing arch support, but with better results. Unlike insoles, braces can also be used to correct the way we stand and walk. Even the slightest foot shift can cause impact effects that directly affect your body. The calves, knees and back are just some parts of the body and may be adversely affected by improper posture or gait. Orthopaedic solves this problem by distributing pressure evenly around your feet and ensuring that they land at the right angle, which is why customizing these is so important.

The insole can generally be used for 6 months, while the aligner can be used for 5 years. These lifetimes reflect the length of time the product should be used. So, if you feel uncomfortable at some point, the insole may be the right choice. The effect of the aligner is more pronounced and faster than the insole, so if you continue to feel pain for a long time, you should look at the aligner.

Although insoles are not as effective, they still provide short-term relief, but are generally more suitable for those who do not have sustained or regular pain. In fact, if you are engaged in any activity that requires standing for a long time, the insole can be used as a precaution. For example, they are popular among floor staff in shops and restaurants.

So while the two look almost identical, the truth is that they are different products that produce different results. As mentioned above, the slightest problem with your feet can have an effect on your entire body, so while picking up a pair of insoles can be tempting, remember that you might make things worse. Not better. If you are not sure which one is best for you, you should discuss your problem with the podiatrist.
