Orthotics and sport

It is not uncommon for our patients to ask  "Can I wear my orthotics for sport?". Our response is yes!

Orthotics are designed to improve your alignment, modifying forces within your lower limbs to take strain off structures and make you more efficient. When you are active the forces going through your body are increased and your orthotics are even more important at this time. Your podiatrist designs your orthotics with your activities/sport in mind to address these increase in forces.

So yes it is a great idea to wear your orthotics for sport as they will be doing what they are designed to when your body needs it most! If you have any issues when wearing your orthotics for sport be sure to contact us so that we can review your orthotics as they may need an adjustment.
