Football is a high impact sport that can involve a lot of sudden movement, twisting and turning of the feet. Whilst playing football your feet are also exposed to high levels of shock and pressure. These things can over time cause damage to key ligaments joints and bones found in your feet as well as in your lower legs, knees, hips and even your lower back. If you have flat feet, high arches or your feet overpronate when you run you are also at greater risk of developing a foot injury this is because these conditions can place extra strain on your feet causing them to become damaged quicker. Footballers who do not stretch and warm up their feet properly before a match or wear proper support in their football trainers are more prone to developing injuries such as plantar fasciitis and metatarsalgia (ball of foot pain). Protecting your feet from damage couldn’t be easier, with a pair of orthotic sports insoles. Orthotic insoles are made to help reposition your feet in the most natural position and correct pronation and biomechanical imbalances, helping you to run more efficiently and in a way that places less strain on your feet when you play football.
