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