Footbalance: The Analysis

Your feet are the foundation of your body differing from anyone else’s and often differing from your left foot to your right foot. Any imbalance from your feet up through the body may result in pain, discomfort or loss in performance stemming from this common misalignment. More than 75% of the population suffers from misalignment such as overpronation or excessive supination.

Our FootBalance 100% custom insoles support your feet properly in a neutral position aiding a balanced stance and correct total body alignment, addressing a wide range of extremely common issues caused by foot misalignment. The effects of our FootBalance 100% Custom Insoles can be felt throughout the body improving performance in your sport, reducing the risk of injury through total body alignment or just offering extra support and cushioning working in the office or chasing the kids around the house.

So let’s talk about your feet! When you next visit one our stores be sure to have your feet analysed. You will find you have one of three common foot types.

You could you have the most common foot type, overpronation. This is when your foot rolls excessively inward, distributing weight unevenly across the foot.

Supination, the least common of the three foot types. This foot type vastly reduces the body’s natural shock absorbing capability. Highlighted by an external rotation, pushing the body’s weight along the outside of the foot.

Neutral foot type is where your foot and ankle maintain a straight line. Weight is distributed evenly across the forefoot and down through the heel. This is the ideal foot type but if foot health is not maintained has the potential to collapse into overpronation.

The medial arch, which starts from the heel and continues to the ball of the foot, tells us a lot about the foot. It functions to distribute body weight and impact and is the body’s natural stock absorber. Think of it like a spring, once you put your foot on the ground the medial arch compresses and springs your foot into your next step.

Similar to different foot types your arches are unique to you and differ from person to person, foot to foot. We break it down into three categories: low arch, normal arch and high arch.

NORMAL ARCH

When your arch is normal your body suspension works naturally absorbing the impact of every step you take.

LOW ARCH

Low medial arches can how ever lead to poor shock absorption as your suspension to the body comes ineffective, resulting to discomfort and stress injuries in your muscles and joints.

HIGH ARCH

People with high medial arch tend to have a rigid foot structure and there also suffer from poor shock absorption, resulting to discomfort and stress injuries in muscles and joints.
