50-year-old Master Sun, previously a driver, later resigned from work due to vision loss, and early "retirement".

As driving often with the legs, the master Sun daily pays great attention to leg health and will walk every day to exercise, the circle of friends' steps ranking steadily take first. After walking for some time, Master Sun found that his shoes always wear faster on the inside, which made him distressed.

There is no standard for how badly worn the soles of shoes are

After talking to a friend about this, the friend suggested that he go to the hospital to do a checkup, which may be due to problems with the foot.

So Master Sun went to the hospital the next day to check, after examination the doctor told him that this situation is most likely due to problems with the arch, but further films are needed to make a clear diagnosis. Finally, the doctor told Mr. Sun that he had flat feet, which may lead to pain and weakness in the ankle and limited walking to a certain extent.

The degree of wear and tear of shoes can tell whether there are abnormalities in the foot. What exactly is the principle of this? Follow the small wonder to understand.

First, from the sole wear can see what problems in the body?

Under normal circumstances, we walk in a slight outward eight state, so the sole of the shoe will be more or less some wear, general wear will appear in the outer heel of the shoe, and the wear on both sides of the basic is consistent.

Usually, the newly purchased shoes will wear about 20% after six months. If the newly purchased shoes, in a short period, there is a wide range of wear and tear, you should be alert to the possibility that the body has a problem.

In the end, how serious the wear is to indicate a problem?

Dr. Zhang Yu of the Foot and Ankle Department of Sichuan Orthopedic Hospital said that there is no clear standard for this issue. Each person's sole wear degree, with weight, use time, and shoe material are linked, through the wear of shoes can only be initially inferred from the relevant foot disease.

Specific diagnosis also needs to be confirmed through imaging, with physical examination, as well as some of the patient's symptoms comprehensive analysis.

Second, if the sole of the shoe is these 4 conditions, need to pay more attention

Although there is no standard for how serious the wear and tear is, the wear and tear of shoes may indeed suggest some health problems, found that the shoes appear to these problems, must be alert.

1. The mouth of the shoe wear

This situation is generally caused by the shoes being too large, long-term wearing unsuitable shoes and the foot to adapt to the shoes will often rub the mouth of the shoes, easily resulting in the mouth of the shoes inside wear. In the long run, it is easy to the shin, and with calf acute pain, the heel is also easy to blister.

2. Sole wear

① Medial: more medial wear may be due to inversion of the knee, flat feet, and other factors, such people have flatter arches, and daily walking with the middle of the foot on the ground, the foot will naturally tilt outward, which will lead to to to more wear on the medial heel. In the long run, it is easy to make the calf muscles too tight, which may also lead to the pelvis tilted forward, causing low back pain symptoms.

②Lateral: the outer side of the shoe wear is too serious, likely, the two legs of the knee joint outward separated, resulting in the calf tibia turned inward at a certain angle. After a long time, it is easy to form a bad posture such as inward eight, O-shaped legs, and may also involve the lumbar spine.

3. Wear and tear at the toes

When you find that there are obvious toe marks on the upper, it is most likely due to the shoes being too small. Wearing shoes that are too small will make the forefoot bear uneven weight, and the toe joints will become unstable, and the foot will be deformed as a result.

4. Wear on the outside of the big toe

Bunion people's big toe and a foot connected to the joint tilt more than 15 ° causing this situation to be more common in people who often wear high heels, long-term wear and tear are likely to cause corns, calluses on the foot.

Third, the foot needs to choose the right shoes, teaching you to choose the right shoes according to the foot type

Different feet need to choose different shoes, each person needs to make a specific choice according to their situation.

The sole should be chosen with non-slip material

Normal feet: normal feet in daily walking and running are the outside of the rear foot first, gravity falls evenly on the entire foot, and the wear and tear of shoes will also be more even. People with this type of foot type are advised to choose shoes with a wider toe to avoid causing a sense of extrusion to the forefoot.

Arch-shaped feet: people with arch-shaped feet have a greater impact when they land, and wear is mainly concentrated on the outside of the shoe. It is recommended to choose shoes with better elasticity, preferably with air cushions, to avoid excessive pressure on the knees and hips.

Flat feet: flat feet people with excessive outward rotation of the soles of the feet, and frequent extrusion of the state of prolonged walking is easy to make a calf, and ankle soreness. This group of people should pay attention to the choice of shoes that can support the bottom of the foot, and the arch of the foot should pay attention to the choice of harder material so that the foot can achieve a better balance.

Eight feet: For this group of people walking for the outer eight, the heel will be a large degree of outward inward Andean tilt, so in the choice of shoes, it is best to choose the heel, the arch of the harder shoes, it is not recommended to choose soft-soled shoes.

Fourth, what kind of shoes should the elderly choose?

For the elderly, it is very important to choose a pair of suitable shoes, and these points should be paid special attention to.

First of all, the upper should be a little more breathable, so that the foot can breathe. At the same time, pay attention to the best choice of wide head, to avoid bringing too much extrusion to the forefoot, causing discomfort.

Secondly, the sole should be chosen with non-slip material to avoid the elderly from falling in their daily lives. Note that you should choose the ones with a certain thickness, support, and moderate softness to give the elderly a good walking experience.

Finally, the back of the shoe should be chosen to have a "grip", not to choose something like slippers, otherwise, it is easy to slip and fall. It is best to have a little hardness, which can firmly grasp the ankle, to play a role in protecting the ankle.

Shoes are what we wear every day, so it is very important to choose a shoe that suits you, the degree of wear and tear of shoes can also provide some reference to the state of foot health, daily if you find that the shoes wear very serious within a short period, but also to pay more attention to, maybe walking posture is not right, but also to be alert or foot disease.
