Custom Orthotics for Runners
The “Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” is the suggested orthotic for runners. Excessive pronation (where too much weight is transferred to the inside of the foot, flattening the arch) while running causes lack of stability, loss of power and increased risk of strain or injury. When your foot leaves the ground, most of your weight is on your big toe.
The “Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” takes you off of your heels and frees up your toes, placing you over your arches. The “Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” helps improves balance and endurance, reducing strain by gently re-aligning the foot.
As you are aware, a runner’s stress points are the neck, back, hip, knee, shin, ankle and arch. The body, trying to compensate for excessive pronation or supination, can aggravate these stress points.
Proper foot alignment is of vital importance in preventing running injuries. If your foot is not aligned, you will find that running causes a myriad of problems, such as sore feet, ankles, shins, knees, hips or back. By supporting all three arches, you are reducing the risk of injury and improving your balance, power and stamina.
Foot related problems become even more apparent in runners because of the repetitive nature of running, and of course, the popularity. Now, when you feel your foot strike the ground, “Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” will help absorb the foot strike. Your feet will be over the orthotic, supporting all three of your arches, taking the stress off of surrounding ligaments and bones, as well as your hips, knees and legs.
“Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” helps absorb the shock as well as flexing and massaging your arch. This increases the circulation in your lower extremities by 18% to 30%, depending on your level of activity. Obviously, this helps with comfort and fatigue.
Running shoes do not support all three of your arches. If you remove the insole from your shoe, there is not much of anything left. “Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” is a precisely engineered system of support and great attention has been paid to every detail.
“Forward Arch® Corrective Orthotics” will help give you the maximum performance and greatest comfort, no matter what distance you run.
