What is the XP3 Orthotic Foot Leveler?
Chiropractic professionals have the ability to make a significant impact in the performance and the musculoskeletal health outcomes of athletes. No matter what sport an athlete plays, a chiropractic professional is understanding of how the body functions during activity, methods of injury prevention, and potential treatment interventions when an injury arises.
As far as protecting the patient from injury goes, the chiropractor has a wealth of strategies for this process. This does not involve only direct treatment interventions and chiropractic adjustment techniques, but it also involves the use of products or equipment that an athlete can use in their sport. Some of these products and equipment can improve the functionality of the body, while simultaneously putting the body in the optimal position to ward off sports-related injury.
One of these products is the XP3 Orthotic, by the company Foot Leveler. An orthotic is a customized insert that individuals put in their shoes after specific modification for that individual’s foot layout. These inserts ensure that the distribution of weight across the foot is in line with the foot’s structure to avoid any problems that can arise as a result of improper weight distribution. With respect to the XP3 Orthotic, Foot Leveler has done a lot more than just provide athletes with support and proper weight distribution.
The XP3 Orthotic gives athletes the edge they need for performance in their sport. It is 46.3% lighter than any other orthotic on the market, which is especially useful for athletes that play tennis, basketball, and any other sport that requires force application on hard surfaces. The XP3 also has various different layers that contribute to an increased level of shock absorption. This reduces the amount of force that the athlete experiences from the ground when running.
Chiropractors that see a lot of athletes in their patient population should be mindful of when orthotic inserts are applicable and if they are going to choose any orthotic insert for their patients, Foot Leveler’s XP3 Orthotic is the way to go.
