The Science Behind
Helping You Move at Your best
Moving More is Living More
Record numbers of Americans are taking charge of their health and seizing every opportunity to move around throughout the day. Let’s take a look at some of the astounding benefits the science of movement can bring to your life.
Regular exercise is vital to heart health. That’s why we’re working with the American Heart Association’s Healthy For Good™ movement to help spread the word about the importance and benefits of movement.
It all starts with your feet. Moving more has vast health benefits, and since your feet are the key to it all, Dr. Scholl’s is passionate about the science of biomechanics. Understanding how your body works to create movement helps us make products that help you manage pain, discomfort, and fatigue right at the source, so you can keep moving with ease and joy.
It all starts with your feet
Tired, Achy Feet
With every step, kick, jump – you name it – your feet keep you stable. And they literally take a pounding, sometimes as much as 2 to 3 times your body weight! That leads to tired, achy feet. And if your feet ache, you may want to slow down.
Lower Body Muscle Fatigue
There are 52 bones in your feet held together with 100-plus muscles, tendons and ligaments. As you move, your muscles have to work harder to absorb the impact and stress on your feet. This leads to the feeling of fatigue that you may normally experience after a long day of being on your feet or after an intense physical activity. And if you are feeling drained, you may find yourself taking taking a break from moving.
Lower Body Pain
Every step you take creates shock waves that travel all the way up through the bones and muscles of your lower body. Shock can lead to pain in your feet, legs, hips and even lower back. It could also lead to conditions like heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, shin splints, runner’s knee and more. And pain can make you want to move less.
