Navicular stress fractures are often caused by repetitive stress placed on the foot. The injury usually happens to athletes who play sports that involve running, jumping, or twisting. These activities pinch the navicular between the ankle bone and the cuneiform bones. Over time, this force can cause a stress fracture.
If you have it, you are probably all too familiar resting, icing, and elevating. If you have to be on your feet, or when you’re able to get back on your feet, support is going to be critical to healing and preventing re-fracturing.
According to FootCareMD, a stiff sole with sufficient arch support is practical preventative measure.
To that end, a key feature of our inserts is the semi-rigid construction. This provides the support many common foot problems need to properly heal, and they’re just flexible enough to enjoy wearing for long periods.
Depending on the severity of your situation, the stability our inserts offer can help to reduce swelling and promote healing. If you’re recovering from a full blown break or fracture then you can use our inserts as a precaution when you’re finally back on your feet.
It’s a tearing of the fascia (tissue) along the bottom of the foot, usually around the connecting site at the heel...in horror film terms, it feels like Freddy Krueger is playing Beethoven, and your foot is the piano!
IN SHORT, PLANTAR FASCIITIS SUCKS!
MSD stands for Musculoskeletal Disorder, which affects the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments, and tendons. Exposure to these known risk factors for MSDs increases a worker's risk of injury.
According to the Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) is a broad term used to describe pain in the front of the knee and around the patella, or kneecap. It is sometimes called "runner's knee" or "jumper's knee" because it is common in people who participate in sports—particularly females and young adults—but PFPS can occur in nonathletes, as well. The pain and stiffness caused by PFPS can make it difficult to climb stairs, kneel down, and perform other everyday activities.
