Kybun kann die Heilung während dem Auskurieren der Knochenhautentzündung unterstützen. Auf dem weich-elastischen Material werden die Stösse des harten Bodens gedämpft. Dadurch nehmen die Schmerzen ab und die Knochenhaut kann sich erholen.
Nach der Rehabilitation ist kybun die beste Prävention vor einem Rückfall und bietet ein ideales Ausgleichstraining bzw. Regenerationstraining zum intensiveren Sport-Training.
- Too intensive or excessive training
- Changing training conditions, e.g. a different floor covering
- Changing the technique
- Unsuitable shoes or insoles
- Foot malpositions
In addition to pain, the possible symptoms of periostitis also include swellingof the affected area. Limited mobility is also a common symptom.
Periostitis can by very protracted. In some cases it takes several months before the pain goes away entirely. Even after being free of symptoms for an extended period of time, the pain may suddenly return. This is particularly the case when sports training is taken up again too soon.
- The soft, elastic material of the kybun shoe and kybun mat dampens the impact of hard floors. You can walk and stand again with less pain and may even be entirely free of pain. Thanks to light activity with kybun, your periosteum can recover and the injury can heal.
- Since the foot can move freely in all directions, circulation is improved, especially in the foot and the lower leg. This promotes healing since ‘pain substances’ can be transported away more easily and the supply of nutrition to the periosteum is improved.
- With kybun, you train the core, stabilising muscles of the feet and legs. This improves stabilisation and coordination in the joints. It is the best way to prevent renewed inflammation.
- In case of an acquired foot malposition (e.g. skew/flat foot), you can train the stabilising foot musculature in the kybun shoe/on the kybun mat, thereby actively counteracting the malposition. It is highly likely that the periostitis will be alleviated as soon as your feet are stronger and passive twisting is reduced. Read more under ‘Foot malpositions’.
If you are suffering from acute pain on the periosteum of the shin, it is often difficult for the muscular tissue of the lower leg to respond quickly (this is a protective mechanism of the body). As a result, you may feel unstable in the kybun shoe. In such cases, we advise using the kyBounder as long as you are in acute pain. For further tips, please read more under ‘Application tips’.

- Since pain may vary, kybun shoe training should always be adapted to the user’s condition each day. It is important for the affected individual to find out over time how much kybun training is helpful and when it is time for a break. On some days, it may well be that only short and gentle kybun shoe training is required (or even skipping a day), while walking longer distances in the kyBoot may be possible on other days.
There should never be increased pain after kybun shoe training/walking (dosage!).
This is of particular importance with all inflammatory diseases! With regular walking in the kybun shoe, the body will adjust over time (stronger muscular and connective tissue, more stable joints). Complaints/initial reactions will occur less quickly and frequently.
More helpful tips:
- If you feel pain in the kybun shoe or on the kybun mat, or if your existing pain gets worse, this may be due to various reasons (e.g. an unfamiliar, more upright posture, tense muscles, movements that are unfamiliar for the body).
- We advise you to perform the kybun exercises regularly every now and again. They loosen the muscles and straighten the body. This relieves strain on the joints. As a result, the pain should decrease after a few hours or days.
Choose the kybun exercises that are good for you! Some customers prefer easier movements while others find the more intensive exercises helpful; this is highly individual.
- Choose a kybun shoe with a lower rebound effect. It provides you with greater midfoot stability. Ask your kybun dealer to show you the various models.
- If you feel unstable wearing the kybun shoe or are looking for an additional training device to use at home, the kybun mat is the ideal alternative. You can strengthen the foot, leg and back musculature at home on the soft, elastic springy mat. You can hold on to a fixed object if you feel unstable. The kybun mat is also available in a choice of different thicknesses (the thicker, the more intensive the training). Ask your local kybun dealer for advice.
- If you get very fatigued in spite of the kybun exercises, or if you feel pain or in case of lateral/medial rolling of the ankle joint on the kybun sole, we advise you to take a short kybun shoe/kybun mat break until the symptoms go away.
- Be sure to maintain an upright posture, avoid taking excessively long steps and keep your gaze forward (do not look at the floor). You should walk straight on the kyBoot sole and correct any lateral/medial rolling of the ankle joint!
