The foot lands on the outside of the heel, then excessively rolls inward, transferring weight to the inner edge instead of the ball of the foot. This type of movement can cause patellofemoral syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and shin splints.
The outside of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle without pronating, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg. Left untreated, this can lead to serious injuries such as: Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, patellofemoral syndrome and others.

Exercises to strengthen the arches and muscles in your feet
Proper foot alignment takes time. The only way to correct forces moving in the wrong direction is to adapt and adjust them over time so that you strengthen your feet and develop a more efficient way to walk and run.
To that end, our deep heel cup and triple arch support system would be the key features of our inserts that meet this criteria.
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!

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.
