Preventing knee pain in running sports
OVERPRONATION AND UNDERPRONATION ARE THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF DISCOMFORT AND/OR PAIN WHILE JOGGING
Running or jogging may be your true passion, but unfortunately the price is often knee pain, shin splints, calf pain or indurations, Achilles tendon irritation or foot pain. At worst, you may even have a heel spur and experience pain when your foot strikes the ground. Frequently, the reason for all these symptoms is ankle instability caused by valgus foot (pes valgus), fallen arches (planovalgus), hollow foot (pes cavus) or flat foot (pes planus). A good running shoe alone is often not sufficient to prevent over- or underpronation. By contrast, individualized sensorimotor foot orthoses can specifically influence the individual phases of your running kinetics, strengthen your foot muscles, provide relief to your knees and Achilles tendons, facilitate back painfree movement and even enhance your athletic performance. PROPRIO® experts can answer these and many more questions! With the help of precise motion analysis, the causes of your pain and any physiological deficits can be clearly identified.
