What Are Copper Insoles?

Arthritis Joint Pain- Copper Healing Benefits

Arthritis effects people of all ages including children, and is the biggest cause of disability in the UK with more than 10 million people having arthritis or a similar joint condition. Arthritis is a condition that causes pain and inflammation in joints. 

Symptoms of arthritis include:

  • Joint pain- stiffness and tenderness
  • Restricted movement of the joint
  • Muscle wasting and weakness
  • Inflammation around the joints
  • Warm red skin around the joint effected

Managing the pain of arthritis can be difficult for some people, as the treatments prescribed can have side effects. This has led to many people looking for alternatives to help them manage and treat the pain. Some such alternatives can include acupuncture, homeopathy, seeing a chiropractor, or using copper to help alleviate the pain in the form of copper bracelets, jewellery or insoles.

Copper Bracelet

Copper has long been associated with having healing benefits for the wearer. Scientific evidence has proven the benefits of ingesting copper through diet- however, medical evidence surrounding the benefits of wearing copper still remain much debated among professionals. Wearers of copper however argue the benefits are there in helping to alleviate symptoms.

In order for this to work, copper needs to be absorbed by the body into the bloodstream from being in constant connection with the skin. It is believed that the healing elements of the copper are then distributed around the body to the joint pains that need it. Whilst there may be no scientific backing to wearing copper, health individuals agree it won’t cause the body any harm and is regarded as being well worth trying as a holistic approach to see if it helps alleviates symptoms.

Copper Insoles HeelerCopper soles and insoles are designed to help relieve the pain associated with arthritis, joint and foot pain. Copper soles have been designed to be stuck in the shoe under the heel. The contact from the foot and the copper is where the body should absorb the copper and gain the healing benefits from it. The product claims socks and tights can also be worn as normal without effecting the absorption.


Copper insoles work in a very similar fashion but have 4 discs of copper inserted into the insole at points in the heel and the part of the foot just below where your toes begin.

Both products work to heal pain from within, through the absorption of copper into the body. They have been designed to help reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation in effected joints.
