Aussie rules football and the benefit of insoles for players

Australian rules football is a physically demanding sports. At state and national level, players must maintain peak physical health. The sport requires players to kick, jump, tackle and handball, while running up to an impressive 12 miles during a single match.

It is no surprise that participants within this sport are prone to injuries, particularly within the lower limb. Aussie rules insoles can help prevent common football injuries and keep players on the field longer. Here’s how:

Support - Aussie rules requires a range of complex movements to be carried out, this includes, running, jumping, sudden short and sharp stops, and pivoting. As a result, ankles injuries are common. Enertor sports performance insoles provide support within the shoe. They fill the gap between your foot and the shoe, providing a complete platform for your foot to stand on, allowing you to feel stable while performing type of movement within the game.

Shock absorption - While running, the forces exerted on the knees is up to 6 times your bodyweight. This is a great deal of force, so it is no wonder why many knee injuries occur in runners or running related sports. However, Enertor insoles reduce this impact with the use of their D30 impact technology, providing shock absorption. Results showed Enertor insoles reduced impact by up to 44% compared to other brands. Not only does this help with the prevention of knee injuries, but also Achilles problems.

Achilles tendinopathy is a common injury associated with Aussie rules, due to the sudden stops and sharp starts. With the shock absorption technology and superior cushioning the strain on the achilles is reduced. The luxury with Enertor insoles insoles is that they can be worn in day to day shoes.

This provides support and shock absorption continuously throughout the day, therefore is you do have a injury or slight niggle, the use of these insoles within day to day shoes as well as during training, could be enough to help prevent an injury developing or alleviate any pain or discomfort initially felt.
