Most common Indicators for Sensorimotor Insoles therapy

There is often a great disparity between the cause and effect of health problems related to posture and the musculoskeletal system. For years, back pain has been the most common health problem. The reasons that underlie this and similar complaints amongst about 80% of patients aren’t due to bones or joints, but rather functional disorders with muscle tension from the foot to the head. Foot function disorders can lead to an increase in muscle group disturbances. These disturbances can affect the functions of the legs, hips and the entire spine, including the neck and head.

Sensorimotor insoles improve the foot’s muscle function: muscle tension as well as impairments and pain in the musculoskeletal system dissolves.

Indicators for the therapy with sensorimotor insoles

Head
Head
  • Unspecific headaches, e.g. migraines.
  • Distorted head posture
  • Neck tension
  • Pain in masticatory apparatus
Foot
Foot

Deformities:

  • Splayfoot
  • Flatfoot
  • Clubfoot
  • Pes cavus
  • Skew foot
  • Pes equinus
  • Pes adductus
  • Early stages of hallux valgus
  • Hammertoes

Dysfunctions:

  • Achillodynia
  • Heel spur
  • Enthesopathy
  • Hypertonia or hypotonus of the long and short foot muscles
  • Foot roll disorders
  • Sports-related pain (in the range recreation and competition)
Knee
Knee
  • Functionally influenced axial deviation
  • Complaints in the patellar bearing
  • Hypertonia or hypotonus of the long and short foot muscles
  • Painful enthesopathy
  • Sports-related pain (in the range of recreation and competition)
  • Pelvic floor weakness
Pelvis
Pelvis
  • Functional pelvic obliquity
  • Muscle-related pain in the pelvic area
  • ISG complaints
  • Sports-related pain (in the range of recreation and competition)
Gait
Gait

As a dynamic image of the function of the entire musculoskeletal system, the review of the gait is an integral part of any insole. It provides important clues to possible causes for the patient’s complaints. This applies to:

  • Axial deviation (feet, leg axis, body axis)
  • Movement restrictions
  • Distress
  • Gait uncertainties
  • Fall prophylaxis
Posture
Posture
  • Functional disorders regarding head control
  • Muscularly compensable spine deviations (scoliosis, kyphosis, hyperlordosis)
  • Even and postural Relieving posture and abnormal posture
  • Functional pelvic obliquity
  • Prophylaxis of posture in childhood and adolescence
Back
Back
  • Postural and muscle-related symptoms induced in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar area
  • Cervical spine syndrome
  • Recurrent vertebral blockages
  • Lumbago
  • Sciatica
  • Intervertebral disc symptoms (protrusion, prolapse)
  • Chronic back pain
  • Shoulder-arm syndrome
  • Pain due to wear of the vertebral joints
  • Deviations / angulations (scoliosis, kyphosis, hyperlordosis)
  • Prophylaxis of postural damage in childhood and adolescence
  • Sports-related pain (in the range of recreation and competition)
  • Supportive therapy for rehabilitation after illness or accident

MEDREFLEXX insoles have also been effective in pediatric orthopaedics. Sensorimotor insoles are an especially helpful training tool when it comes to treating foot muscle weakness and posture as well as neurological disorders (disabilities).
