Being active, the smell of fresh air and the feeling of freedom and possibility. Nothing stops an experience like this in its tracks like an unexpected injury. While many hiking related injuries are not always avoidable, you can mitigate the risk by properly preparing.
Ankle sprains, knee pain and joint inflammation are common amongst avid hikers. Securing your foundation and ensuring you have the right support can help to mitigate the risk while out on the trail.
Foot Medic’s integrated deep heel cup helps to control your heel bone, giving you a more consistent and stable gait. Gait stability and a solid foundation are very important as the miles tick by and the terrain varies.
Foot Medic’s Triple Arch Support System helps to reduce impact forces by dispersing your weight throughout the entire foot. Supporting all three arches will also increase the number of steps you can take over time, since your feet and legs will be operating more efficiently.
When out on the trail, you’ll be putting in the hard work, asking your feet to endure a lot. You need support that can handle the miles and then some without breaking down. Foot Medic is all about consistent support. That is why we use a semi-rigid polypropylene that is made to last a lifetime. Because the last thing you would want, is for your support to leave you when you’re out there all alone.
Cycling is a relatively low impact sport. While it is not without its hurdles and injuries, cyclists are less prone to repetitive motion impact forces than other sports. However, keeping your foot aligned and proper weight distribution can make you a more efficient rider. And as each cyclist knows, every pedal counts.
A recent study conducted by the National Institute of Health (NIH) saw that while HIFT exercises did not see any statistical increases in injury rates from traditional exercise regimens, there were some common injuries that functional training participants suffered from, including: ANKLE, KNEE, and BACK injuries.
