Another great article for our Phits 3D printed custom insoles.
Some old school therapists may say insoles are a ‘quick fix’ and not a long term beneficiary.
However… this is wrong.
Yes sometimes they maybe used as an intervention to reduce pain and symptoms as a ‘quick fix’. However, for a patient who is unable to perform strengthening rehab exercises or simply doesn’t have the time or mentality to do them. Insoles then provide the means to relieve painful symptoms.
As the article rightly demonstrates, these custom insoles are not just to reduce pain but to correct faults in biomechanics and improve performance, hence why so many top athletes are now using them.
Prevention is better than cure!
The footscan system that we use alongside the Phits insoles is a highly accurate platform for true gait analysis. Running legends such as Sir Mo Farrah regularly use the system to keep check on their performance and gait pattern.
