Cricket insoles are shaped inserts which are placed inside the shoes of cricket players with the purpose of eliminating the excessive stresses that are placed on the foot during cricket.
What are cricket insoles?
Cricket insoles are custom made orthotics which are used to reduce the amount of strain that the foot and lower limb are subject to during cricketing activities. The sport itself requires a combination of standing, walking, running and sprinting for long periods of time, all of which puts great demand on the structures which make up the feet. Increased forces as players run and dive across the field mean that aches and pains as well as injury are a problem for cricket players. Cricket insoles work to prevent these problems, allowing the player to perform at their best.
What podiatry related conditions can cricket insoles help with?
Cricket insoles are a useful form of treatment for common cricket related podiatry problems which include;
- Ankle sprain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Morton's neuroma
- Achilles tendinopathy
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Painful corns and callus
How do cricket insoles work?
Cricket insoles work by correcting any abnormalities within the foot. They provide the structures which make up the foot with direct support reducing the amount of stress that they are placed under during cricketing activities. The insoles work to cushion the foot and increase comfort levels by absorbing shock waves which travel through the foot and up the lower limb during walking, running and jumping.
What are the benefits of cricket insoles?
The following are some of the benefits associated with the use of cricket insoles;
- Provides the foot with support and cushioning during long periods of play
- Provides relief from painful symptoms
- Provides protection from the shock and excessive forces of fast bowling and fielding
