Back, Hip & Knee Pain
iGelSoles can dramatically reduce shock on the lower skeletal system. The glycerin actually “floats the foot”, therefore the shock is absorbed by the insole and not the ankles, knees, and lower back.
It is a known fact that liquid seeks it’s own level. The PURE Glycerin in our MASSASING INSOLES will therefore, float the feet, allowing even distribution of weight. A foam, rubber, or plastic insole is not able to float the foot. The even distribution of weight also reduces the amount of friction on the feet.
iGelSoles help correct and treat the problem, naturally.
All out foot problems (and many other spinal column problems) are caused by the fact that we were designed to walk in bare feet on soft ground. “Civilization” has taught us to do exactly the opposite and continually walk on hard surfaces wearing improper footwear for longs periods of time, allowing the foot to lose its natural posture and conditioning. This causes the foot to settle, which in turn adversely affects the alignment of the feet, legs, and entire spinal column.
The “Pump” effect is the beginning of your treatment.
iGelSoles are flexible and “pump” at the arch with every step. This constant “pumping” improves blood flow and stimulates circulation in the foot and entire body. Increased circulation helps stop burning feet, leg cramps, foot swelling and also helps gout and diabetes by dissolving the pockets of uric acid and crystals which have developed while the blood movement was slower.
Research has shown that most people stand slightly tilted forward. This tilt can and does put undue stress on the hips and lower back. Quite simply, the muscles in your back are working to support your weight rather than your spine. If you can slightly realign your posture you will stand more upright offloading pressure from the hip and lower back muscles.
iGelSoles put upward pressure on the arch. This pressure causes the foot to rock slightly forward pulling the calf with it. This causes a forward rotation of the pelvis which helps to realign the spine straight up and down. Now the weight of the upper body is supported by the spine rather than the muscles of the hip and lower back allowing you to stand, walk or work for long periods of time with little or no pain. For many people the pain relief is immediate. The rotation of the pelvis has also been shown to help people with Sciatic Nerve issues also helping to relieve or eliminate another cause of hip pain.
Knee Pain can occur when the ankle or foot excessively flexes inward or the arch flattens too much. The resulting unstable position places added stress on the medial (inside) portion of the foot during the mid-stance and/or toe-off phases of the gait cycle. The body over compensates from the lack of stability in the foot giving a slight twist to knee.
The knees and lower back then absorb the shock, causing pain in the lower back and knees by added stress to the improperly aligned tendons and muscles. Targeted treatment for knee pain will help align your feet into their proper positions. Your shin bone becomes misaligned when your foot improperly settles in the longitudinal arch. This misalignment continues up to the spinal column, causing discomfort to the knees, hips, legs, lower back and upper back.
So c’mon! Buy a pair already!! The only thing you have to lose is your pain ;-)
