HOW KNEE PAIN CAN DEVELOP
Athletes often experience knee and hip pain caused by abnormal friction and rubbing of the iliotibial band muscle over the knee and hip joints. You might feel severe pain that comes on gradually on the outside knee joint. Or sometimes you feel it on the outside hip. Simply walking up or down stairs may worsen this condition. The pain usually subsides immediately with rest, but returns with activity.
HOW ORTHAHEEL® TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP REDUCE KNEE PAIN
Orthotics can control the internal rotation of the shin bone (tibia) and the rotation on the knee and hip joint through use of inbuilt rearfoot wedging. This reduces stretching (tractional) and frictional forces on the iliotibial band muscle. Stretching this muscle is also helpful.
