| Best Seller - Dr Foot's Sport Insoles (pair) |
Your hip is a weight-bearing joint, and all of your weight above the waistline has to be supported by your hips. Whenever you stand, walk, or run, the weight-bearing joints in your body are subjected to external forces (gravity, heel-strike shock, etc.) and the strain of repetitive motion.
A runner, for example, takes an estimated 1500 strides per mile, and a force of 2-3 times the body's weight must be effectively absorbed through the lower extremities with each step. Also, the weight of the body is supported on just one limb through three-quarters of the gait (walking) cycle; during that time, the muscles in your hip must contract to keep your torso from falling to the opposite side.
Insoles are essential in restoring structural and functional balance as you stand, walk, or run in order to stop hip pain.
The contoured shape of the Dr Foot Sports Insoles supports your feet in two directions, both lengthwise and across the arch, for maximum relief of pain and fatigue. The special poron heel cushion built into the insole helps to reduce shock absorption.
Dr Foot Sport Insoles are engineered to combat over pronation and provide greater stability and maximum support. Ideal for patients seeking arch support for prevention and treatment of hip pain.
