Orthaheel Inserts, Sandals & Shoes


 
 
"Biomechanics" studies the body's movements during walking, running and sports, and the effect of these movements on our bodies.
The human foot was originally ‘designed’ to travel on soft, natural surfaces like earth and sand. Unfortunately, instead of soft earth, we now spend every day walking and standing on unnatural hard, flat surfaces like pavements and floors. These surfaces force our feet to roll over to gain ground contact and our arches to flatten. Rolling over of the foot - or ‘Excess Pronation’ is believed to affect over 50% of the population!
Foot Pronation - Orthaheel 
Interestingly, although the foot rolls inwards, often the shoe will wear excessively on the outside edge of the heel. This is because the foot normally ‘lands’ on the outside edge first and consequently rolls over causing excess pronation as a compensatory motion.

'Excess pronation' often leads to common foot problems such as:

Flat feet/ Fallen Arches (Pes Planus)

Ball Of Foot Pain (Metatarsalgia)

Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)

Achilles Pain (Achilles Tendonitis)

Aching Legs

Just like the tires on a car, poor alignment of the feet can cause wear and tear to other parts of the body. ‘Excess Pronation’ often disrupts normal knee function and hip alignment and increases forces on the muscles in the lower back. Subsequently, ‘Excess Pronation’ can cause a wide range of common complaints including knee pain and lower back pain!
