“My name is Berit and I am a personal trainer. I have actually been using the orthotics that Dr. Carlson made for me for about the past year. I noticed that I could not run more than ten minutes before I had orthotics. I just did not know, I thought it was something that my body could not do. I just thought that running was not for me, and running felt very awkward. It would give me lower back pain and I would end up not running. As soon as I got the orthotics, it was something brand new to my feet. I become very aware of the muscles in my feet and legs because of them, and I could just run. I did not know that it was supposed be that easy to run. So that was a big revaluation for me and a reason I am been using them the past year and I will continue to use them.
As a personal trainer I am on my feet all day. I am standing and observing. I need to be quick on my feet. Even just standing still I noticed different muscles in my legs activating because I have got the orthotics on. So I noticed my muscles are actually responding, even whether I am still or whether I am moving round. But for someone who is on their feet all day as a trainer its a great thing to use and speak to your clients about because I can see the changes in myself so I am better able to recommend it for my clients or know when my clients are doing an exercise that orthotics could help them with.” – Berit, CPT
