SOLEMAIDS INSOLES 

Let us  get your kids back to playing sport

Solemaids

 

Solemaids insoles help to relieve heel pain caused by Sever’s disease. They are specifically designed for this condition and plantar fascia. 

Sever’s disease is one of the most common causes of heel pain in growing children and teenagers. The condition is caused by an inflammation in the growth plate of the heel, which can set in when this area is exposed to repeated stress, as a result of high impact activity.

Kids who are physically active or engaged in sports that involve a lot of running or jumping, especially on hard surfaces, have a greater risk of developing Sever’s disease. For these kids, the pain can become so severe that they have to take a break from their sport.

But it’s not the kid that needs a break. It’s the heel.

By suspending the rear part of the heel, Solemaids insoles remove the pressure from this area. This immediately relieves the pain and allows the child to resume physical activity.

With Solemaids insoles fitted in their shoes, active kids won’t have to be benchwarmers.

ANKLE INJURY PREVENTION

Ankle injury prevention is very important in the short term when playing sports, hill walking or simply walking your dog.

Undertaking some simple exercises that can improve balance, strength and flexibility can have very positive effects.

 4 Ankle exercises to prevent injury 

  1. Balancing: try and stand on one leg for more than 30 secs. This can help prevent falls

  2. Perform heel/calf raises- keep these big propulsion muscles strong. Can you do more than 20?

  3. Mobility- work on your calf and ankle flexibility. Practice calf stretches with bent and straight knees.

  4. Work on your intrinsics- can you separate your toes or move the big toe on its own? 

I have seen Stuart for many of my sporting injuries such as knee and Ankle sprains from when I was playing football at AFC Wimbledon to now studying to be a PE teacher. Keeping fit is paramount for my work and well-being and Stuarts expertise has always kept me on track. First class physiotherapy service
