Athletic insoles — what do athletes need in an orthotic?

Biocorrect, LLC


It’s no secret that if you’re an athlete, you’re putting a lot of stress on your feet. Whether you’re a golfer, runner, tennis player, football player or soccer player, pain and soreness as well as injuries can affect your ability to perform at the level you need to. 

What’s more, structural and mechanical issues in the feet can lead to misalignments that travel up the body’s kinetic chain, potentially contributing to ankle, knee and hip injuries. There are a number of ways for athletes to keep their feet healthy, including good nutrition, hydration, stretching and foot strengthening exercises. One common measure for the highly active is to use athletic insoles that are designed for the increased stresses that sports can put on an orthotic. 

What an insole designed for athletic use should feature

Any foot orthotic that is classified as an athletic insole needs to be able to meet the special needs of an athlete. This should mean the following: 

  • Designed by experts with experience in addressing biomechanical issues and misalignments experienced by athletes 
  • Made from high-grade materials, particularly foam that will not break down under high stress
  • Offers adequate cushioning and support for long-lasting comfort while still promoting natural foot motion

The full range of insoles created by the experts at Biocorrect Custom Foot Orthotics Lab are designed to meet the needs of people of all lifestyles and backgrounds, including amateur and elite athletes.

“I have had Biocorrect orthotics for over 10 years now and I can tell you that I will not get my orthotics from anyone else. I run ultra marathons, do iron distance triathlons using my orthotics while also using them every day for work. The staff are awesome and their orthotics last."
