I can't say enough positives about Alzner arch supports for pain relief for high arches and from plantar fasciitis. I have been wearing these for 14-plus years with wonderful results. My spouse has also gained total relief from his foot issues and his problem foot configuration actually improved to a more normal foot pattern. They are expensive, but not as much as the custom made products from foot care physicians.
The Alzner staff at their retail sites make imprints of your foot, analyze the problem configuration and fit you with the proper inserts. Once you become accustomed to them, by following a break-in schedule as advised, there is such amazing pain relief. The foot does change over time with regular wear and it is advisable to be checked every few years.
Recently, I suffered another bout of plantar fasciitis and discovered that my 14-plus year old Alzners needed to be replaced; I had almost worn them completely flat. I had forgotten about needing to replace them after a while because I had been so satisfied with the results from wearing them.
Once I got re-evaluated and purchased a new configuration, I can say that I have had no more pain. I have been able to play 18 holes of golf this week every day, with not one twinge. The old inserts were helping, but the new ones have eliminated what has been excruciating pain over the last few months.
If you can't find a retail store nearby, you can have a home fitting kit sent to you and the proper inserts will be shipped back. They will work with you to insure proper fit and relief. I recommend working with The Body Works store specialist in Gatlinburg, TN. I know this is a reputable Alzner agent and they have been in the same place with the same fitting specialist at least since the early 1990s when we first were fitted. Yes, we travel eight hours to get there! There is also a five year guarantee for free of charge replacement for breakage during this period. They do warn you not to let dogs near them. Dogs apparently love to chew them and there is no replacement for that. I have no affiliation with this company or retail site. I am just a very happy consumer who wants to spread the word to others with foot pain.
