Orthotics for Basketball

Basketball players are typically above average in their height and weight. These special characteristics, combined with the intense physical demands of a seasonal sport, make them particularly susceptible to pain and injury.

Basketball playing in itself poses typical physical challenges which take their toll on the player's feet, ankles and knees. Frequent leaps and sprints, rapid direction changes and sudden stops which require an excellent degree of balance and stability, are all part of a typical game. While the cushioning in high-quality sports shoes does decrease some of the strain on the feet and joints, it often does not sufficiently absorb shocks. Thus it does not provide adequate foot support to prevent injury.

Tamir Kfir's custom-made orthotics absorb shocks effectively, help stabilize the foot on the court's floor and prevent the foot's slipping-and-sliding inside the shoe. They help maintain the stability of the knee and protect against stress fractures and shin splints. Tamir Kfir's orthotics are custom-made to fit the unique structure of the player's foot, his position within the team and the particular challenges of the game. The specially designed orthotics not only counteract the accumulated strain on the foot and prevent sudden or long-term injury but actually enhance the player's performance.
