JOI Best Shoes for Hip Pain
By Matt Paulus, Certified Athletic Trainer
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/Over pronation
- High arches
- Issues with flexibility
Most choices of footwear are dictated by your foot mechanics. Flat feet would be appropriate for an motion control shoe. 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. On the other end of the spectrum you have high arches which are handled differently. A cushioned shoe would be the proper selection in this situation.
JOI Rehab clinicians can help you with the correct selections with your shoe wear and even provide custom orthopedics if necessary. Also correction of the issues that are causing the pain through formal rehab. A coordinated effort to return yourself to pain free activity.
