Best Shoes for Hip Pain Overview

JOI Explains Why Some Shoes May Be the Best for Hip Pain

Many causes of hip pain can be biomechanical or structural to the body such as:

  • Issues with pelvic alignment.
  • Leg length discrepancy.
  • Flat feet/Overpronation.
  • High arches.
  • Issues with flexibility.
Wearing proper athletic footwear can help if you are experiencing hip pain.

Best Shoes for Hip Pain 

Most choices of footwear are dictated by your foot mechanics. Flat feet would be appropriate for an motion control shoe. Also, a motion control shoe would help control the arch of the foot for normal position and evenly distribute pressure along the length of the foot. However, on the other end of the spectrum you have high arches which are handled differently. Furthermore, a cushioned shoe would be the proper selection in this situation.

Another option is to have a custom orthotic to wear in all of your shoes.  JOI Rehab offers custom orthotics for a reasonable price.
