Are you an athlete? Athletic, player, runner, biker, hiker and list goes on…
Probably you’re one of greatest fans of expensive or trendy athletics shoes that will provide great benefits for you as an ATHLETE, LIFESTYLE and SPORTS.
Which is by far the biggest misconception on how you can best protect yourself and enhance your endurance, performance and strength.
Shoe manufacturers spent a great deal amount of time (and marketing too) on designing the exterior appeal of a shoe and marketing it than they do on the actual insole within it.
What is more is that usually the insole of a shoe is the cheapest piece of the shoe offering a mediocre amount of shock absorption and arch support for the foot it encases.
With that being said a custom design is for you to be 100% accurate of its benefits. Second it should be created by the experts which are the trained and experienced physical therapists and foot doctors.
By including custom orthotic insoles in athletic shoes it will help to reduce the possibility of injury while the athlete is active, helping to decrease the amount of stress actually put on the feet, ankles, knees, hip and lower back of the individual.
In athletic individuals, sports activities result in a great deal of movement and pressure on the foot. Slight imbalances in the foot that are not harmful or even detectable under usual circumstances may make one more vulnerable to injury with the extra stress of sports activity.
Athletes spend a great deal of their time on their feet whether it is running for long periods of time or jumping to make a basket and so forth.
And, with every step that a person takes they are putting at minimum 3 times their body weight on to the feet and ankles, causing a multitude of issues if they aren’t properly protected, especially during the times when the weight put on ankles and feet is much higher such as athletic activities.
That walking, running or jumping increases the pressure exerted on the feet exponentially leading to injuries that can be painful and require medical treatment to resolve.
By eliminating the need for one’s muscles to compensate for imperceptible imbalances, orthotics can reduce fatigue and promote efficient muscle function to enhance performance. With enough functional correction, the foot structure can be aligned to give more propulsion, making walking, running and cycling more mechanically efficient.
Foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored; problems can affect the functioning of other parts of the body, including the hips, knees, and back.These
A good quality pair of custom orthotic insoles will help to absorb the shock, circle the energy back to the heel strike area, provide proper arch support and cushion the foot when the wearer pushes off while taking a step. Custom orthotic insoles or custom orthotic inserts are made with the wearer’s foot specifically in mind so that they fit perfectly and provide the maximum amount of protection no matter what athletic activity they are worn for.
Orthotics is a long standing medical practice of offering truly foot and arch support that will allow athletes to play at the top of the game, run without the worry of injury and jump with the confidence in knowing that the feet are protected through it all.
