Joya for foot aches – causes, symptoms and remedies
8,000 per day, almost 3 million per year, almost 240 million in a lifetime - that's how many steps our feet carry us! They are not only mechanical supports, but also cushioning organs through the arch of the foot.
Today, modern people move mainly on hard industrial floors such as concrete and asphalt and no longer walk barefoot - the many small muscles and tendons that actively work together thus no longer sufficiently support the cushioning system in the foot. But also the modern shoe fashion leads to the fact that the feet are constricted and shape-changing, even prevented that the pressure can be distributed when stepping.
Common foot problems
The foot is the part of the body that carries the greatest load of the body weight. Accordingly, feet need to be properly challenged so that they can keep their shape and properly carry all the weight. When jogging or jumping, this weight is even increased many times over. We often do not realize how important the right footwear is until our body makes itself felt in various ways. The consequences range from overuse pain to malpositions of the foot.
The most common foot problems include:
- Torn ligaments
- Heel spur
- Hallux valgus
- Plantar fasciitis
Heel spur or plantar fasciitis?
A heel spur is an ossification of overworked tissue/bone, which can be very painful, regardless of the size and length.
In the case of plantar fasciitis, the tendons on the sole of the foot become inflamed as a result of stress. This leads to intense pain when walking.
Measures to prevent foot pain
Conventional forms of therapy, such as soft cushioning pads or customized shoe insoles are very popular among doctors. Heel spurs, for example, are treated with electrotherapy or trigger point therapy.
However, the idea of walking on clouds is not so far-fetched either. The right footwear makes all the difference! The soft-elastic Joya shoes work wonders, with the help of the soft-elastic sole they take the pressure off the inflamed /stressed area and activate the body's own shock-absorbing system, which leads to good blood circulation in the foot.
Joya shoes allow a natural rolling of the foot, consequently an optimal foot pressure distribution and reduction of the load on the foot or the inflamed area. The foot is protected and relaxed, can recover from the pain. This leads to the fact that soft-elastic shoes are highly appreciated and recommended by physiotherapists.
Tips in everyday life
- Stretch your foot muscles regularly to relieve tension in the muscles.
- Always keep moving. Even while working, stand up in between and alternately put weight on your legs.
- Wear soft-elastic shoes whenever possible, such as Joya shoes.
- Avoid wearing high, tight or hard shoes - walk barefoot from time to time.
- Try to walk most of the time, whether it is a short walk during your lunch break or from the bus station home.
- Indulge your feet with a fascia rolling massage, this can also loosen sticky fascia.
- Exercise regularly to strengthen your foot muscles. However, these should be gentle on the joints, such as swimming or cycling.
- If you have any further questions or if you feel unsure, because the pain in the Joya shoe does not improve despite following the tips, please contact a Joya retail partner you trust.
The benefits & effects of Joya Shoes
The right footwear
The orthopedist's tip in the area of everyday shoes is called "soft-elastic soles, low heels and no shoes that are too hard or constricting":
- Hard or constricting shoes increase the load pressure on individual parts of the foot and work against the body's own shock-absorbing system.
- "Soft-elastic soles cushion the impact when walking, distribute the load, which leads to the fact that the self-awareness of the foot is promoted, the body's own shock absorber system is activated and the foot is stretched and relieved," says Prof. Dr. med. Christoph Anders, specialist in pathophysiology at the University Hospital of Jena.
- With high shoes, the center of gravity is clearly placed on the forefoot, so the metatarsal bone moves to the inner edge of the foot and the movement of the ankle is significantly reduced.
Pressure distribution in the Joya Shoe compared to walking barefoot or in regular street shoes
Barefoot pressure distribution
Above-average stress can be found in the heel and forefoot area.
Pressure distribution in street shoes
Visible stress can be seen in the heel area around the high heel, as well as in the forefoot area.
Pressure distribution in the Joya Shoe
The pressure is distributed in the best possible manner thanks to the soft elastic Joya sole, which consistently reduces the stress.
