In the case of Jensen’s orthotics, they are designed to hold the foot in what Jensen calls ‘the neutral position,’ neither pronated or supinated. ‘The magic thing about our orthotics is that they have enough medial and lateral control to hold the foot in the neutral position.’ That is what most orthotics do not do. If the foot is not neutral, nothing good ever happens. A pronated foot rolls inward when walking or running and does not properly pass the weight over the foot, creating a bio mechanical problem that stresses the foot and lower leg. The knee and hip are affected as well because of the inward rotation of the leg. A supinated foot has a curved, highly arched profile. Both can be a problem.
‘The average person does not do something until it is really bad. If only I could get people to be proactive and learn to take care of their feet,’ laments Jensen, a board-certified pedorthist who has been in the shoe business for four decades. He launched Jensen Shoes in 1965. ‘We dramatically change people’s lives.’
The highly qualified professionals at Jensen Shoes are trained to handle challenging foot disorders. Even accident victims and sufferers of arthritic feet have found relief in Jensen shoes and orthotics, and diabetics turn to Jensen’s even with maladies as serious as open ulcers.
