4 Ways That Custom Orthotics Can Elevate Your Game

heel painFrom pounding the pavement as a runner to hitting the bike trails as a cyclist, you need to ensure that your feet have the proper support so you can enjoy your favorite sport and avoid injury. At Greensboro Chiropractic we provide Foot Levelers custom-made orthotics. Here are four ways that these inserts can help you be at your athletic best. Orthotics can do the following:

#1. Provide proper support

One of the primary benefits of custom orthotics is that they provide optimal support for the feet, allowing them to move properly. Orthotics also can help you maintain your body balance. When your feet are functioning at their peak you may be able to perform at your athletic best.

#2. Help prevent injuries

Millions of Americans experience sports-related injuries annually. When you have pain as a result of an injury, you often overcompensate and overuse the uninjured muscles or tendons. Your movement isn’t as efficient, and extra stress and strain are placed on your muscles, joints and spine.

Custom orthotics, however, are designed to support your feet, so they keep your spine, hips and knees properly aligned when you engage in your sport. When your body is aligned it can function optimally, lessening your chance of injury.

#3. Realign your body

When custom orthotics correct your particular foot issue, your body can be balanced. This allows your legs and hips to line up properly, so there’s less strain placed on your spine.

#4. Enhance athletic performance

Since custom orthotics can address injuries, pain and biomechanical foot problems, many athletes consider them an essential tool to help them stay at the top of their game. Not only can custom orthotics help you meet the demands of your particular sport, but also help you optimize your athletic performance.
