Whether you’re spiking that ball, going up for that jump-shot or trying to outmaneuver that defender, you are using foot muscles to change directions rapidly.
Having a strong foundation is key to ensuring that you can do all of this with maximum efficiency and without injury.
One of the biggest concerns of any sport is getting injured, and these sports are no exception to that rule. Three of the most common injuries in these sports are foot related because of the demand we put on our feet while playing. These sports involve running, jumping and quick evasive maneuvering to play the game. All of which make having a good foot foundation under us is very important.
When the foot is weak due to improper arch support it weakens the rest of the body. When arches collapse improperly and the calcaneus (heel bone) everts or inverts, as you run, jump or evade your opponent, the ankle is allowed to roll excessively and can cause injuries in the ankle, knees and hips.
Foot Control and Support Systems are designed to aid in preventing these type injuries. Foot Control and Support Systems keep the arches supported while controlling the calcaneus during the ranges of foot motion during the game. Another benefit in controlling the excessive motion of the foot during evasive maneuvering will result in quicker response from your feet giving you the ability to maneuver faster. So no matter what sport you are engaged in Foot Control and Support Systems can help bring you athleticism to the next level.
