Do you have flat feet, low back pain or plantar fasciitis? Custom orthotic insoles help alleviate foot pain by stabilizing imbalances to restore natural movement of the feet. Problems with foot biomechanics cause pain in the feet as well as other parts of the body. Pain can be minimized or alleviated with use of the appropriate orthotic inserts. Orthotics are not for everyone, but sometimes they are needed to help bring the subtalar joint back to neutral to help balance the rest of the body's movement. You remember the old song; The foot bone's connected to the: so on and so on. Just like a house that has a poor foundation, if your foundation is weak, then the rest of the body will be weak and prone to injury.
"Training for an Ironman triathlon is grueling enough, and the last thing you want to deal with are injuries during the crucial ramp up period prior to an Ironman race. For me it was my one shot at racing in the Ford Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. So I left nothing to chance when I suffered two over-use injuries during the several months of training leading up to that race. After much research and talking to other competitive triathletes who had worked with Mike at Performance Therapy, I chose to work with Mike to solve the problems I was having that was causing my injuries. Mike got right to work in identifying the injuries I had, what was causing the injuries, and put together a treatment program to address the problem areas so I would be ready for race day. The program worked and neither injury was a problem while racing in the World Championships in Hawaii in October."
