Whether you’re swinging a golf club, baseball bat, or lacrosse stick, or switching from soccer to volleyball, tennis, or biking, seasons change and so do the sports, but one thing stays the same – orthotics and cleats make a great team!
Of course, you need to make sure the cleats you wear fit properly and are also appropriate for the sport you play. Then, once you have the right pair of cleats, slipping some custom orthotics inside will provide bonus protection against sports injuries and actually improve your performance! Here’s how:
Custom orthotics are made to fit your unique feet and their specific needs. An inherited foot structure that leaves you prone to injury can easily be counteracted by the strategically placed support a pair of orthotics can provide. These amazing devices can also redistribute weight more evenly, redirect pressure away from problem areas, and correct bad biomechanics that may be slowing you down. In fact, orthotics can hold your foot in proper alignment and correct your abnormal gait, resulting in better foot strike and form, which translates into a stronger, improved performance!
So, why just stop at buying cleats when you can give them super powers simply by sliding orthotics inside? Orthotics and cleats make a great team – and so do Podiatry Associates, P.C. and you! Call us today so we can set you up with a pair of custom orthotics to help you avoid injury and reach your PR!
