    Wink Solved my Knee pain

    I have stressed my knees real real bad 2 months ago. It has been going for 3months. I tried taking Glucosamine and some rest. But the pain did not go away. I've read that glucosamine is good for the joints but maybe it is not a cure, it's just a supplement. I should have taken that regularly before I stressed out my knees. What solved my problem is the Superfeet Insoles, you can find my review here. I've been using it for 2months now, and my knee pain went away. I tried the Blue one and the Orange. The blue one I've ordered from jmall.sg and the orange I ordered from Amazon.com I am using the orange on my Li ning shoes and the blue one on my office shoes. Anyone of you tried superfeet or any other insoles to help with your injuries? Please post them here to also help others. Thanks

    Tried them before. Found Spenco Total Support Max much better for my flat feet.

    That's great. Someday I will try those also, I wanted to feel the cushioning and see how it works out during the game.

    This is what confuses me before, many reviewers from amazon claimed that they are flat footed and they have benefited from this.but only few says no. What i can tell you is that superfeet has an archsupport so it may dig in to your flat foot.but the superfeet black could be good for you because of low arch support.however I have not heard of anyone that used them on badminton.if you got spare money, try the blue(arch support is lower than green and orange) or black.you could also try the spenco total support. World of sports sells spenco, you could try them first.

    Changing to a new pair of badminton shoes does help with knee pain as well.

    i've got wide and flat feet... it's more important that your shoe is wide... but yes, it'll be suitable

    i was told since to get something "higher" in term of the arch to "balance" my feet so to prevent from causing more stress to the knee which will add into the pain of my knee... and true enough after using the SCHOLL insole, i have not been having pain tat often.. i only use the insole on my shoes for gym.. cant really fit nicely into my bad shoes...

    yes will go find and check it out.. thanks..

    Tried the superfeet orange previously before in my previous badminton shoe. but what works for me better is getting silicone heel cups, this help reduce the impact on my knees when i lunge forward. Without the heel cups, i definitely can feel a difference after a few games.

    I was in a similar position. I too have flat and wide feet and play using Scholl orthotic sports insoles. Almost during every session and after, I get pain around my right knee, especially when I lunge and going up the stairs.

    IME, I would suggest you give your legs a good stretch, especially your hamstrings. I mean not just fingers touching your toes, but the whole palm of both hands on the underside of your feet, comfortably.

    This relieved the pain for me.

    the best thing to get for flat feet (which i have) is to get custom orthortics (carbon flex type). itll give you bounce and align your foot. with flat feet your feet over pronate too.

    youll need to go to a qualified podiatrist or orthotist to get your feet measured.

    all those gimmicky off the shelf insoles like spenco and superfeet etc are a waste of money

    Just out of curiosity, have you tried Spenco Total Support Max?

    Because I have both that which costs $29 and custom orthotic that costs $400. Granted, the more expensive one lasted 2-3x longer, but they both provided the same excellent support and cushioning.

    You are correct, it would be a waste of money for some people. But It could also save money for lots of people. So some people try spenco or superfeet first, if it works, then great. If not, they would need to refer to a podiatrist. But if you have more money to spare, go straight to your podiatrist for a custom one.
