With the daily strains experienced by our feet, the bones and other internal structures weaken faster through time, and occasional aches are soon felt. Most Canadians apply foot support devices to prevent injuries and other related problems for the whole day or every time they do vigorous feet activities like running or walking. Foot support devices, or foot orthotics, are generally classified based from their suppliers: shoe inserts found in retail stores and custom-made orthotics received from prescription. Insoles, heel liners, arch supports, and foot cushions are common shoe inserts quite effective in treating foot conditions like flat arches, and aches in both the foot and the leg. However, biomechanical and long-term problems are beyond their capabilities.

Stumbling over while marathon training, being shoved too hard during team games, and violent falls in tumbling exhibitions are accidents and risks that athletes and players have to usually face and suffer from for the sport. Most sports-related injuries involve strains in the joints, muscles and tendons, such as ankle sprains and knee fractures. Strains in these areas are chronic in nature, which normally happen because of repeated movements over a period of time. Meanwhile, damage that resulted from a single crash or impact from a violent force is identified as an acute traumatic injury.
