Playing sports or exercising frequently can expose your feet and ankles to additional and unusual forces. Research has shown that when you run you will experience up to six times your body weight on your weight bearing joints. If you have poor biomechanics this can result in injuries. This is why it is imperative to get the right orthotic for the right activity. A sports orthotic is designed specifically to allow for the increase in forces placed on the body while playing sport. Often people require more than one orthotic, as one orthotic does not fit shoes for all purposes.
