As athletes improve performance and maximize efficiency, they rely more and more on sports medicine to surpass their performance thresholds. Sports medicine is focusing on biomechanics, proprioception and kinesthetic awareness to prevent and treat lower extremity injuries.
Custom foot orthoses are increasingly making their way on to professional and recreational playing fields. When prescribed by a bio- mechanical specialist, a foot orthosis can enable the foot plane to more efficiently direct and distribute load through the rest of the body. Once an athlete’s entire system is in balance, he or she should notice improved performance and enjoy lower risk of injury.
