During sporting activities the body has to absorb increased stress and strain on the joints and soft tissue structures. This is due to the increased speed of movement and rapid changes in direction.
Small bio-mechanical imbalances in foot posture can multiply these forces and increase stress on the body. This can therefore increase the chance of injury or pain developing.
If bio-mechanical imbalances are present in your body a prescribed Functional Foot Orthotic can make a big difference to your life. By improving alignment and limiting unwanted motion in the foot pain and chance of injury can be reduced. Allowing you to train and perform at your best.
The biomechanics of running is very different from walking biomechanics. As is the way the body moves in different sports. It is therefore of paramount importance to see a clinician experienced in running and sports biomechanics.
