WHY YOU GET SORE AFTER SPORTS.
There are two main reasons why you get sore.
- IMPACT ENERGY
- JOINT MISALIGNMENT
Every time you take a step or land from a jump, impact energy shoots into your body. Small repetitive amounts accumulate and lead to soreness while large amounts cause injury such as internal bleeding /bruising. The result is a sore body that takes longer to heal and cannot perform at optimal levels.
For decades, insole companies have not been able to address this issue. They have simply marketed their products with the word “cushioning” however there is a huge difference between cushioning and energy absorption.
The most premium of insoles may feel very cushioning however when put to the test it is easily shown that the energy of impact still passes through, thus accomplishing nothing more than comfort and not truly aiding the athlete.
FOOTPRINT INSOLE TECHNOLOGY insoles contain a nano technology which reacts to impact energy by transferring it into a different state ( heat) before it can reach the body. The heat is no hotter than body temperature so you feel nothing.
FOOTPRINT INSOLE TECHNOLOGY insoles have literally revolutionized sports insoles for all athletes.
The second leading cause of injury and soreness is joint misalignment. The majority of knee, ankle or hip pains, stem from over pronation in the feet and unfortunately 70-80% of people suffer from this and most do not know it.
Its a domino effect
- First the arch of the foot goes flat
- The ankles turn inward
- The knees go crooked
Short term effect-
- GET SORE FAST
- STIFF JOINTS
- NEED DAYS TO RECOVER AFTER SPORTS
- “FEELING LIKE AN OLD MAN AT A YOUNG AGE”
Long term effect
- over pronation is the leading cause of torn ACL
- uneven cartilage wear leads to early arthritis
You may have just accepted this as normal or part of your sport but the truth is, you simply need custom orthotics with the level of support your body demands.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you should get a custom orthotic as soon as possible.
