Nobody places stress on their feet quite like athletes. Whether you run or play high-performance sports such as football, basketball, soccer, or ballet, athletes of all types need to protect their feet from injury and pain.
Anyone with an active lifestyle can benefit from sports orthotics, or insoles for cleats. If you do not take the proper precautions to prevent injury or provide support for your feet, you risk considerable damage over time. Consider that the entire body is connected together – when damage happens to your feet, certain stressors will impact other parts of your body as well. If one part of your foot is experiencing pain or injury – for example, callouses or heel pain – then this can have a rippling effect throughout the body.
Most shoes are not designed to support the individual needs of athletes, particularly those who participate in high intensity movements. Even running shoes can use a little extra help because, while supportive, they were not made for your specific needs.
Footstar Orthotics is proud to offer sports orthotics and custom insoles for athletes of every background. Our insoles offer solutions for individuals who want to prevent injury before it happens, and solve current issues they are facing with their feet.
