Injury Preventing Orthotics For Athletes
Did you know most professional athletes have footwear and insoles shaped to their feet to help increase performance? Naturally this can be done for the world's top athletes, but what about the footwear you use every day?
It may seem odd but the more you move the greater the chance of giving yourself sports injury!
Foot and leg injuries are caused by faulty foot mechanics such as fallen arches, flat feet, Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis being sped up by movement.
These conditions may manifest themselves as tendon or ligament damage, stress fractures, shin splints, calf muscle strain, medial and lateral ankle sprain, hard skin, and callous build up.
Foot orthotics give the foot support, comfort, structure, and shock absorption to help reduce the incident of stress fractures and allow the foot muscles to function as nature had intended.
Orthotics, sometimes called arch supports or insoles, make up for weaknesses or inefficiencies in your foot's working mechanics. Orthotics offer greater shock absorption, give greater foot alignment, reduce foot and leg fatigue, and help the foot bones, ligaments and tendons function in a more energy-efficient manner.
Orthotics can help reduce the risk of over-use injuries, sports injuries, and muscle fatigue - as well as helping to cut back on inefficient effort and wasted energy that results in foot fatigue. Orthotics offer corrective alignment, restore proper foot function, speed up muscle firing patterns, and speed up the gait allowing you to perform at a higher level for longer periods of time.
