You have sustained a sports injury, what now? Nothing is more devastating than sustaining an injury that will freeze our exercise routine in the cold, especially so for athletes. Exercise is the fuel that pumps through our veins, a spring of energy that vitalises us. As fitness enthusiasts, we can never afford to let this flow stagnate. Need to expedite the recovery process and get back into the rhythm? We have the perfect solution.
Sports injuries are frustratingly debilitating. They jam the clockworks crux to our daily lives, leaving our body mechanics to screech in pain and discomfort. We tend to ignore the screams of our bodies, erroneously thinking that it will recover on its own. It no longer has to be so. With MBTs, we no longer have to fall victim to such discomfort. We no longer have to trudge an arduous route towards recovery.
The wondrous spectrum of benefits offered by MBTs may seem like building castles in the air, too good to be true. But no, every single benefit we are proud of is strongly rooted in extensive research conducted by only the most renowned in the field. We present only the facts, facts that we trust will be absolutely beneficial for you. Let us now explore the miracle known as MBTs.
MBTs have been proven to be pivotal in post-marathon recovery, which we have delved into here. That is only the tip of the iceberg in regards to what they can offer. Sprains are one of the most common sports injuries, especially when running on uneven terrain or during contact sports. Wobble boards are used for rehab after an ankle sprain to strengthen muscles around the injured ankle joint and promote balance. In the same vein, the natural instability of MBTs emulates balancing on a wobble board, facilitating and enhancing recovery from sprains.
Knee problems are one of the maladies commonly associated with sports and exercise. The knee joint is highly complex, with a large number of components susceptible to wear or injury. This will inevitably lead to an alarming disarray of implications, such as cartilage problems, torn tendon or ligaments and discomfort behind the kneecap. The resulting instability and discomfort lead to an instinctive desire to alleviate the pressure by adopting a different movement or posture, further weakening the muscles adjacent to the knee joint. Ultimately, it will greatly impair our ability to walk. Research has proven that people who wear MBTs on a regular basis experience significant reduction in pressure on the knee joint. They are also shown to activate the muscles adjacent to the joint and improve walking technique, serving as an effective treatment for knee ailments.
Aside from benefitting only fitness enthusiasts, MBTs are also a beacon for those suffering from a myriad of other medical ailments too. In a study conducted by the Medical Science Sports Exercise involving 126 individuals with moderate knee osteoarthritis, wearing an unstable MBT shoe was effective in reducing subjective pain after as few as only three weeks. Moreover, after wearing MBTs for 12 weeks, the benefits endured even after they stopped using MBTs. Their aid in ameliorating osteoarthritis is indeed a cornerstone to recovery.
Ever experienced discomfort under the heel when you start walking after you get out of bed or have been sitting for a long time? You may be suffering from plantar fasciitis, a very common foot problem suffered by an estimated 400,000 Australians. This arises from a strained or injured plantar fascia, a flat band of tissue that connects the heel bone with the toes. The design of MBT’s curved soles distributes plantar pressures more evenly across the width of the entire forefoot or metatarsals, resembling the pressure patterns observed during barefoot walking. This shifting of pressure distributions is suggested to be beneficial in alleviating plantar fasciitis as it relieves pressure in the midfoot and longitudinal arch.
No one shoe is as comprehensive as the MBTs. Indeed, they are an indispensable and trustworthy companion for those seeking recovery, be it exercise or otherwise. Entrust your recovery to us here at MBT, and our shoes will take it from there.
