Custom Foot Orthotics Proven to Decrease Running Injuries

Custom Foot Orthotics Proven to Decrease Running Injuries

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

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

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”.

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

Shoes made to fit the size and not the exact shape needs of each foot.

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

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

Runners are Athletes and Far Exceed These Numbers

Easily greater than 10,000 steps per day. 

Easily greater than 3.5 times body weight gravitational stress too. 

Is there any wonder some runners end up injured, in pain and unable to exercise?

It’s all about the Passage of Force & Reduction of Stress!

When Running Technique and Foot Function is flawless, Shock is Absorbed as designed and the stress to your musculoskeletal system is minimized.

On the other hand, Poor Technique and/or Bad Foot Function sets the stage for repetitive compressive stress and damage to the musculoskeletal system resulting in injury… slowly over time.

Did you know the Human Foot is Designed to Lock & Unlock with each and every step you take?

This Locking and Unlocking is how the foot absorbs shock – Supination & Pronation.

 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.
