The importance of using Proprioceptive Transparent shoes can not be over stressed.[]

Example of Proprioceptively Dysfunctional Shoes






















The above patient was fitted with a pair of proprioceptive insoles.  Note the distortion in his posture when inappropriate shoes are worn with his insole (See Shoes Baseline):

1) Foward body lean is increased

2) Anterior pelvic rotation is increased


Clinically, when posture is distorted (i.e., using inappropriate shoes with the proprioceptive insoles), pain symptoms return/develop.


ALWAYS CHECK THE SHOES
