You should think about your feet while doing sport
Healthy feet not only bear the extra strains of sport for longer but also help protect against potential painful conditions that can develop in the foot and other parts of the body such as waist pain and hip pain. So it makes sense to have our feet looked at and to wear good orthotic insoles in order to avoid problems like these.
The Podiart foot check by computer reveals static problems such as fallen arches, flat feet and leaning ankles, which are in the background of potential complaints. The examination lasts 5 to 10 minutes. Based on the image generated, custom orthotic insoles are made, which are ready in about 10 days. It’s good to know that nobody’s feet are the same, so wearing someone else’s orthotics will do more harm than good.
As someone who does sport in their free time and as a ski instructor, I know from personal experience how important healthy feet are. Often, when I was working, I felt a strange, repetitive stabbing sensation in the middle of my sole. I knew the time had come for orthotics. That’s when I turned to Podiart Kft, where I met very kind, well-informed specialists. After I got my first pair of orthotics, it transpired that the type I had ordered could only be worn in my wider shoes. So I needed another pair that I could use in my ski boots and sports shoes. I tested this pair cautiously too, as it is important to gradually increase use by an hour each day so as not to overburden the feet and to allow time to adapt to the sensations. Wearing orthotics was an unusual feeling at the start. You have to get accustomed to the different supporting points. The new sensations disappear after a while and the feet get the support they need.
In trying out the new orthotics I realised that a few changes would have to be made so I could use them in my ski boots. By this I mean trimming the orthotic insoles to the right width. It’s worthwhile devoting time to getting them just right. You need to be patient, trying them out at home and when doing sport. The end result is bound to be good and useful. Podiart were always eager to help, so I can recommend them to my fellow sportsmen and women with a clear conscience. Since I have finalised my bespoke orthotics, I’ve never gone anywhere without them.
