Simply put, virtually all conventional footwear, even supposedly "good" supportive footwear, trains your body's natural protective reflexes to work inefficiently leaving you susceptible to damaging stresses, injury, and pain.
In parts of the world where shoes are regularly worn, poor foot function has become the norm. Cushioned, supportive, and tight-fitting footwear train neuromuscular function to conform to these impediments causing numerous symptoms, such as pain and stiffness.
By stimulating and retraining the protective reflex response in the feet and legs, BioPods insoles promote balanced strength and flexibility in the opposing muscles while encouraging and stabilizing optimal bone alignment throughout the feet, legs, hips, and lower back. BioPods reduces and often eliminates damaging stress and strain on overworked muscles, which helps to prevent development of chronic problems and reduce risk of injury.
BioPods technologies are based on the same principles as the most advanced rehabilitative therapies to help you safely achieve stronger and more efficient foot and leg function.
BioPods are designed to encourage healthy protective reflex function by providing variable “springy” stimulus under the center of your arches that continually engages and optimizes the Protective Reflexes throughout the feet, legs, hips, and back.
With regular use, this variable stimulus challenges the body's natural proprioceptive and protective reflex mechanisms, causing them to adapt towards healthier, more robust, function. When using BioPods insoles, your shoes should be loosely laced to allow room for adequate foot flexion.
Soft Tissue Adaptation Phase
When using BioPods for the first time, the body's neuromuscular systems will undergo a Soft Tissue Adaptation Phase as the feet, legs, hips, and back respond to BioPods’ stimulus. As with any neuromuscular muscle training, the Soft Tissue Adaptation Phase takes approximately 6-8 weeks for most individuals but can take longer for those sufferers noted below. During this period, it is normal to experience transitory twinges or tightness in various areas at different times. It is during this period that latent historical scar tissue or fibrosis may become noticeable in the form of soreness. Seek advice from medical professionals who specialize in soft tissue mobilization, as noted below, if soreness persists.
BioPods do not repair already damaged tissue, such as scar tissue or fibrosis that has been caused by trauma or maladaptation related degenerative stresses from poor foot mechanics and function. Damaged tissues can be treated by a medical professional with complementary conventional mobilization therapies such as ultrasound, deep tissue massage, A.R.T. (Active Release Technique), or Graston Technique, as appropriate.
RECOMMENDATION for sufferers of chronic myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, plantar fibrosis, or multiple trigger points:
It may take longer for some users to adapt to BioPods’ stimulus. It is possible that enough inelastic scar tissue or fibrosis has developed to cause transient pain or “sticking points” that will reveal themselves during the Soft Tissue Adjustment Phase. In these instances, a medical professional can apply a regime of complementary soft tissue mobilization therapies such as ultrasound, deep tissue massage, A.R.T. (Active Release Technique), Graston Technique, etc., to break down the scar tissue or fibrosis and restore elasticity to the soft tissues for full mobility.
