An elite local runner had a stress fracture on his left foot two years prior which resulted in 6 months out of training.
He was experiencing returning symptoms and went to his local podiatrist to get examined.
At the examination he described a tenderness to the top of the left foot, this pain was related to returning symptoms of
an older stress fracture in the 3rd metatarsal bone.
A well fitted Podfo fulfilled all his needs as an elite athlete and facilitated healing. Its precision fit close to the arch brings
comfort and the robust design means it’s ideal for fell running.
• Two weeks after fitting, the patient informed his podiatrist that he had 3 days pain free for the 1st time.
• Six weeks after fitting, the patient did 60 miles training for the British Masters XC.
