Importance in Proprioceptive Therapy
Note the forward postural shift using worn shoes with the proprioceptive insoles
The above animations visually demonstrates the impact incorrect shoes have on the proprioceptive insoles (they diminish the insoles effectiveness in realigning the posture and attenuating the patient's chronic pain).
Correct Shoes - proprioceptive insoles inside shoes
Incorrect Shoes - proprioceptive insoles inside shoes
Shoes with uneven heel or sole wear patterns can distort the proprioceptive signal being sent to the cerebellum, resulting in postural distortions (See Animations Below).
