Tennis foot faults and other lower limb injuries

Tennis foot faults and other lower limb injuries

Did you know?

The cause of pain from your back to your lower limbs often stems from your feet. Multiple studies indicate over 70% of people would benefit from an insole protecting, supporting or controlling their feet when walking or running.

Due to the high impact and repetitive motions required in tennis many body parts are prone to overuse injuries. Whether its ankle sprains caused by quick changes of direction and stop / start motions, or knee injuries due to the fast repetitive and multidirectional movements made, or lower back strains caused by forces on the muscles and joints particularly when serving. Enertor insoles have been designed to both prevent and aid recovery from these types of injury and are proven to heal plantar fasciitis in over 75% of sufferers.



Enertor insoles are the only insoles with global rights to use D3O technology. D3O is a smart material that cushions the foot when moved slowly but locks together on impact to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to its flexible state.

Enertor insoles actually reduce shock impact by 44% and that shock impact property of the insoles transfers to a proven 36% energy return for improved performance, offering the wearer an initial burst of foot energy when moving around the court. With regular use @Enertor insoles will help to reduce pain and your chances of suffering lower limb injuries. A major study by the Armed Forces proved that our custom made insoles reduce injury by 66% and another independent study found that 91% of wearers of @Enertor insoles noticed an improvement in pain relief with 83% of wearers saying they would recommend them to a friend.

Enertor insoles improve posture, which reduces pressure on the lower part of the spine, and improve lower limb alignment and function. They help absorb shock at foot contact and with repeated use will strengthen your ankles and reduce soft tissue knee irritations. They improve rear foot alignment and limit Achilles torsion. The natural heel lift within the insole reduces tension placed on the Achilles and Patella tendons and redistributes pressure away from the tendons whilst reducing repeated irritation through shock absorption.

Enertor insoles offer proven foot and lower limb protection and pain relief to racket sport players worldwide. So, whether you’re a professional player or an amateur, an adult or a youth player, @Enertor insoles should be as much a part of your kit as your racket. Just remove your existing inserts in your tennis shoes and replace them with @Enertor insoles and feel the difference.
