Custom Foot Orthotics Decrease Running Injuries

Custom Foot Orthotics Proven to Decrease Running Injuries

Running Injuries happen all the time although they should not.

Like the rest of us, runners buy and wear mass produced running shoes.

Running shoes are not made to match the shape requirements of any particular individual – a requirement for optimal foot function.

The reality is the average person takes over 10,000 steps per day!

-Optimal Foot Function Matters-

It’s Proven… you CAN Easily Reduce your Risk of Running Injuries.

Researchers shows those wearing custom foot orthotics had “a significantly reduced rate of exercise-related lower limb injury across the training period”.

Reference:

Franklyn-Miller A, Wilson C, Bilzon J, et al. Foot orthoses in the prevention of injury in initial military training: a randomized controlled trial. Am J Sports Med 39(1):30-37, 2011.

The authors emphasized that participants were prescribed orthotics to reduce the potential risk of injury, not because they were dealing with an injury.

In addition, the authors feel that the “preventative results can be cautiously extrapolated to a recreational running setting and should be considered by sports and exercise medicine professionals”.

Why Do Running Injuries Occur?

3.5 times body weight passes through each foot with every step – for a 120 pound woman, that’s 420 pounds.

Optimal foot function is essential for the proper dissipation of force from body weight & gravity every-time the foot strikes the ground. 

How many mis-steps can one truly make before the wear-and-tear exceeds repair?

Why chance it?!!!

2 Important Reasons Orthotics Help Reduce Running Injuries

  1. Orthotics cradle each foot in its corrected arch-up posture allowing the foot to unlock from a higher distance during pronation giving the foot more time to decelerate.
  2. Thanks to precision calibration each orthotic is designed to flex in order to optimize the passage of force as each foot transitions between pronation and supination.

This is how we turn the 26 bones and 33 joints of each foot back into an efficient spring AND REDUCE INJURY.
