What Patients are Reading
Walking can lead to a number of benefits, both physical and emotional.
Shoes should be work when one attempts higher-impact exercises at home.
Editor’s note: Recommend APMA’s running shoe guide for different arch types and APMA Seal-Accepted products to your patients.
The Nature-Fit Difference
Tri Hawk International
Proprietary design addresses the insole issue: Rigid insoles do not allow the arch to move downward enough to fully handle the shock of a foot strike. Soft insoles collapse under pressure and cannot prevent the arch from flattening. Custom orthotics are designed to fit the patient’s flawed foot rather than make the foot healthy.
