Sore From Running? Try Orthotics!

By Donna Stark 

Do your knees and ankles hurt after your daily runs? And has your love of running diminished because of those aches and pains? If so, you may need to try something new ... something like a pair of custom orthotics! Orthotics are a great way to reduce those pain issues and get you back to engaging in the exercise you enjoy most. Here are some of the benefits you can receive with a professionally fitted pair of orthotics.

Pain Relief

You may have seen orthotic shoe inserts filling the shelves at your local drugstore, and yes, they may be able to provide you with a bit of immediate relief, but keep in mind, they aren't the same as a custom pair. Over-the-counter inserts won't fit your feet as well as customized orthotics and generally only provide temporary relief. If you want a long-term solution and less pain in the future, you know what to stick with.

Perfect Fit

Speaking of fitting your feet, that's exactly what custom orthotics are known for! There is no way you can expect an over-the-counter insole to fit your feet in the way you require. Custom orthotics are measured by professionals and take the shape, size, and specific challenges of your feet into account. By choosing them, you can ensure your feet will be getting the individual care you need.

Improved Form

You may end up compensating for the pain if there is an issue with your feet and that could throw off your form and technique while running, which can lead to alignment issues, pain, and injury. Thankfully, custom orthotics will support your feet better than those worn-out shoes you are wearing and absorb the shock placed on your body during your runs. You will end up feeling more comfortable and can look forward to experiencing less pain.

Invest in Yourself

Sure, custom orthotics often come with a pretty price tag, but don't you think it is time to invest in yourself and your overall well-being? You know that a healthy lifestyle is important, so if anything is keeping you from engaging in the physical activities that you love doing, it needs to be addressed as quickly as possible. 

Custom orthotics are made with quality in mind, and will generally last several years, but the best part about them is they will reduce the risk of injury and keep you exercising as much as you want. And you can never put a price tag on that!
