AbstractPhysical activity is increasingly recognised as an important component of primary disease prevention. Overuse injuries are common sequelae of exercise and sporting activities in general, and of running in particular, frequently resulting in cessation of activity. It has been proposed that there is a link between foot shape, foot function and the occurrence of injury. As a means of treatment and prevention of further injury, orthoses and shoe inserts are widely prescribed in the belief… 
APPLICATION OF CUSTOM-FIT FOOT ORTHOSES TO ENHANCE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE –EXAMPLES IN RUNNING AND CYCLING
TLDR
This paper presented three separate studies to reveal the efficacy of foot orthosis in sports injury prevention and pitfall of experimental design.
Foot orthoses in rehabilitation--what's new.
Effect of foot orthoses on lower extremity kinetics during running: a systematic literature review
TLDR
The findings of this review demonstrate systematic effects that may inform the direction of future research, as further evidence is required to define the mechanism of action of foot orthoses during running.
Influence of foot orthosis customisation on perceived comfort during running
TLDR
This study shows that prefabricated insoles constitute a reasonable alternative to custom-made insoles in terms of comfort, and finds that even though custom- made orthoses are closely matched to each individual's foot, such customisation does not necessarily imply greater comfort.
Evolution of foot orthotics--part 2: research reshapes long-standing theory.
TLDR
It is suggested that subtle control of internal/external tibial rotation appears to be the most significant factor in maintaining proper supination/pronation mechanics and that proprioceptive influences play a large, and perhaps largely unexplored, role.
INTERVENTION AT THE FOOT-SHOE-PEDAL INTERFACE IN COMPETITIVE CYCLISTS.
TLDR
Wedge and orthoses at the FSPI alter kinematics of the lower limb while cycling, although conclusions about their efficacy and response to long-term use are limited.
Evaluation of variables affecting lower extremity alignment in the aetiology of patellofemoral pain syndrome
TLDR
The purpose of this doctoral project was to investigate variables at the ankle and hip joint and within the central nervous system affecting lower extremity alignment, in a search for other possible sources in the aetiology of PFPS.

Biomechanical foot orthotics: a retrospective study.
TLDR
The degree of pain relief experienced by patients, the ability of patients to return to their previous levels of activity associated with the duration of use of the orthotics, and patient compliance were determined.
The scientific basis for the use of biomechanical foot orthoses in the treatment of lower limb sports injuries--a review of the literature.
TLDR
A review of the literature indicates that biomechanical orthoses will reduce rearfoot movement, but the effect on knee function is negligible and the clinical significance of excessive rear foot movement is yet to be proven.
The Biomechanics of Running Implications for the Prevention of Foot Injuries
TLDR
The methodology and results of research are inconsistent with the direct predictability of various overuse injuries, based on biomechanical abnormalities and/or contributing factors.
Foot orthotic devices to modify selected aspects of lower extremity mechanics
TLDR
The data support the conclusion that foot orthotic devices can be successfully used to modify selected aspects of lower extremity mechanics during the sup port phase of running.

The Effect of Foot Structure and Range of Motion on Musculoskeletal Overuse Injuries
TLDR
Risk factors that predispose people to lower extremity overuse injuries include dynamic pes planus, pes cavus, restricted ankle dorsiflexion, and increased hindfoot inversion, all of which are subject to intervention and possible correction.
Shoe inserts and orthotics for sport and physical activities.
TLDR
The concept of minimizing muscle work is proposed when using orthotics or inserts, which would reduce muscle activity, feel comfortable, and should increase performance.

TLDR
The use of orthotics to re-establish the normal biomechanics of the foot and ankle have profound clinical applications and the combined effect of muscle, bone, ligaments, and normal biomeChanics will result in the most efficient force attenuation in the lower limb.
Effects of arch height of the foot on angular motion of the lower extremities in running.
Position and Movement Changes of the Foot with Orthotic Intervention during the Loading Response of Gait.
TLDR
The effect of foot orthotics during the loading response of walking, the period of stance when angular movements and positions of the calcaneus typically attain peak values is examined.
