F L I P F L O P S • A favourite sunny weather footwear but are they good for us?

As bad as an elevated heel in shoes might be, one of the poorest types of footwear for the human foot is the flip flop. They create big problems with how the foot functions and should be avoided.

When your big toe extends with walking it activates a system of fascial cables that turns your foot into a rigid lever to push off on. Flip flops remove that important mechanism by forcing you to clench your toes to stop them from falling off.

By deactivating that mechanism your foot becomes unstable and over time creates big problems with your movement mechanics upstream. Want to see what I’m talking about first-hand? Try sprinting in flip flops and see how that goes.

Get rid of your flip flops and spend more time barefoot - stronger, healthier feet are guaranteed to result. If you want to wear sandals make sure they anchor to your foot at the ankle instead of only at the big toe - @lunasandals make some great foot healthy sandal styles.

Foot care @ Advanced Physio Rehab

The foot arches are formed by the bones, ligaments, and tendons of the foot and are essential for both movement and weight bearing. The shape and height of your foot arches are unique; no two people are the same.

The human foot is an incredibly complex mechanism that has two very important functions:

Weight bearing
Propulsion in walking, running and jumping.
To perform these functions, the foot requires a high degree of stability as well as flexibility.

HIGH ARCHES
A high arch is also called pes cavus or cavus foot. As the height of each person's arches varies normally, it may not be a problem. They can be hereditary. A high arch can be more prone to overuse injuries when you play sports or run. High arches do not absorb shock as well or provide as much support while walking. You may benefit from cushioned shoes and custom-molded shoe inserts to help with shock absorption.

FLAT FEET AND FALLEN ARCHES
Babies and children often appear to have flat feet because they have fat pads on the sole of their feet. They usually develop a more distinct arch. Adults can have flexible flatfoot or can acquire a flatfoot deformity when the posterior tibial tendon becomes weak, which is often called fallen arches. If flexible flatfoot is painful, custom shoe orthotics and stretching the Achilles tendon is often recommended.
For adult-acquired flatfoot, the treatment may progress from custom shoe orthotics and the Physiotherapy may help them better.
We at Advanced Physio Rehab offering a detailed foot analysis and customised treatment protocols according to your foot type.

….and the best way to stop running like an idiot is to (GRADUALLY) switch to footwear that promotes proper technique. Zero cushioning, wide toe box, no heel lift
👣
Better footwear prevents injury. Make the change and see the difference with improved efficiency and performance

I try to get about 2,000 steps a day barefoot, just to keep my feet as healthy as possible.

And to get get rid of that sock tan that I'm only noticing now. 😁

💐🌻🍃 #FlatFeet

Overuse injuries are common and preventable, Whether it's hiking, running, or team sports, do some pre-participation training first by lightly working the relevant muscle groups in the weeks before the activity.

I haven’t spoken about my feet in a long time because... I still hate them. 😕
I try to be thankful for the fact that I have them, that they allow for me to walk and even deadlift... but they can’t be difficult.
I have very flat feet which causes lots of lower-body joint issues. My feet, ankles, knees and even hips are all on the line. 👣
I’m relearning how to use my body and heal my relationship with it.
I’ve been taking it easy with my deadlifts because I’m learning how to keep an arch in my feet while doing it. It sort of feels like figuring out my form all over again... it’s kind of amazing if you really think about it. That my brain can allow the rest of my body undo what I’ve learned in my 29 years. 🕰
I try to find love and patience for my body/abilities through that thought... here’s some (relearning) deadlifts @ 145lbs. 💁🏾‍♀️

Huge thanks to @runpacers in Navy Yard for the help in choosing a new shoe that should also aid in fixing my stride over time. It was a pleasure, quick, friendly and why I always shop with you. #running #flatfeet #shoes #navyyard #washingtondc #customerservice

➡️Essenziale per i bambini è acquistare scarpe senza nessun rialzo imterno per l'arco plantare (suola neutra)... il piede fino a 4 anni è NORMALMENTE PIATTO ed ha tempo fino ai 6/7 anni per normalizzarsi!
Per qualsiasi dubbio rivolgetevi al vostro podologo 😉👣 #podoiatry #podologist #podologia #piedi #feet #bambini #kids #flatfeet #shoes #piedepiatto #scarpe #proudtobeapod

Last week was my first Parkrun since July 2107, it was also the furthest distance I’ve ran since the 10 mile race I did in October and where I lost my confidence in running. Today I was on a much hiller course than last week and I managed to speed up a bit, I’m still behind my PB by 4 mins and 14 secs but I’m hoping it won’t take long to get back there again

It was hilly and I after having no confindence for so long to get under 13 mins for my first mile was a big boost for me, it proves to myself that I’m getting better again. Haigh is my home run and the volunteers are ace especially @trish.preston today’s race director and Jenna and the tail walker.....I forgot his name! I may be slow but all these guys help me in so many ways! Thank you @parkrunuk and a big shout out to all the volunteers who come out rain or shine so that this fantastic even can happen.

😱 Did you know?! You can catch athlete's foot from other people with the infection?
You can get it by: * walking barefoot in places where someone else has athlete's foot – especially changing rooms and showers
* touching the affected skin of someone with athlete's foot
* You're more likely to get it if you have wet or sweaty feet, or if the skin on your feet is damaged.

Things you can do to help: * dry your feet after washing them, particularly between your toes – dab them dry rather than rubbing them
* use a separate towel for your feet and wash it regularly
* take your shoes off when at home
* wear clean socks every day – cotton socks are best. #athletesfoot #trainers #foot #feet #podiatry #podiatrist #chiropodist #chiropody #chiropractor #physiotherapy #nails #nail #skincare #healthy #doctor #foothealthpractitioner #running #medical #gym #followforfollow #followme #funrun #education #learning #diabetes #flatfeet #bunions #hardskin #toes #nail

Buying the right shoes is an investment in foot health. But how do you find ones that fit properly and provide adequate support?
Start with your own feet! Stand barefoot on a piece of paper or cardboard, and trace the shape of each foot. Now take your shoes, one by one, and place them on top of the drawing. If you're like most people, your "comfortable" shoes will closely match the outline of your own feet.

Identify the shoes that cause pain. If you're a woman, most of these will be shoes with narrow toes or high heels. Check to see if the toe of the shoe is narrower or shorter than your own toes.

When you're ready to replace some of that uncomfortable footwear, wait until the afternoon to shop for shoes — your feet naturally expand with use during the day and may swell in hot weather.

Make sure you have enough room to move your toes. It’s so hard.. but try to avoid pointed toes, often found in certain boots. This pointed style will prevent your toes from lying flat. This causes a condition known as metatarsalgia: pain and inflammation in the metatarsal bones and in the ball of the foot.
