Patient with posterior tibialis insufficiency. This should be assessed on all patients, especially when you see both feet are flat. This is a bilateral rigid forefoot varus. 'Paddle foot'. In order for her to get those big toes on ground, the entire foot is going to pronate. She has poor dissociation in the foot. Instead of 'unlocking', she's slapping that forefoot down driving the entire foot into pronation, 2nd pic you can see the bilateral pronation = posterior tibialis takes a beating. I'm making her a forefoot varus post for both sides. But only because it's rigid. We will work mobility and foot strength and hopefully be able to remove those posts but we will first unload the tissue causing pain. #gaithappens #foot #paddlefoot #bigtoe #pronation #flatfeet #footstrength #movebetter #rocktape #walkthisway #run #runhappy

Pointe is infinitely challenging 😆😰. Thank God for little pretty easy things like this that make me feel encouraged 😋. I have felt so weak in the last few months and have had a lot of pain in my legs. But I'm thankful for the health that I do have! What I AM able to do. Life is a journey full of ups and downs. .

Echappes to second and fourth... first time putting on the pointe shoes in over a week, waiting for the cut on my foot to fully heal then just busy... I feel -and look- so out of practice.... strength goes so fast and comes so slow 😕... at least I'm not back to being scared of echappes to fourth on pointe... these are still not the soft shank shoes, just the regular shank but they're starting to feel broken in ... ignore my husband in the background... only constructive criticism please... #beginner #beginnerpointe #pointeshoes #onpointe #adultballet #pointebeginner #echappes #beginner #beginnerpointe #pointeshoes #onpointe #workinprogress #adultballet #pointebeginner #echappes #flatfeet #balletbeginner #pointe #flatfeetdoballet #lowinstep #lowarch #dancer #enpointe #outofpractice #adultballetbeginner #accidentalduet #photobomb #balletlegs #beginningballet #bepatient #sixmonthsonpointe #fun #startingballetat30

HOW TO FIX FLAT FEET (part 1)
[understanding your feet]
.
When you are stuck with flat feet or high arch, your foot basically forgot how to find it's center
.
Knowing this, you must custom tailor your exercises to help your foot find CENTER!
.
👉🏼Here is an emoji foot map to help you understand foot mechanics
.
Imagine 🅰️ is extreme supination (high arch), © is center and 🅱️ is extreme pronation (flat foot)
.
FOOT MAP 🅰️321-©-123🅱️ (left foot)
.
A well balanced foot would be resting at ©. Able to go left or right depending on the movement. If your feet are mobile, you should be moving in and out of center effortlessly .
A foot stuck in pronation would be stuck in any position to the right of ©. Stuck in
1🅱️mild pronation
2🅱️moderate pronation
3🅱️severe pronation
.
Wearing orthotics would look like this

FOOT MAP 🅰️321©🙅🏻‍♂️🅱️
.
You just blocked your foot and lost all the range you had in pronation. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼😑Congratulations...you just played yourself. 😂
.
In the 🎥 is an easy exercise (shoutout one time to @roydianchan's foot 😝) that can help your foot understand how to supinate and arch properly
.
👉🏼All you need to do is to create the arch by gripping the floor with your foot! Do 3 sets of 5-8 reps every day and you'll be on your way to arched feet!
.
I will be posting more advanced exercises that require you to UNDERSTAND what I wrote in this post. So re-read it if you must and please ask me any questions below ✌🏼

6 National Parks and I finally got some arches for my feet. #flatfeet #weakankles #findyourpark

For a few months I've struggled to find a pair of sandals that a) have an instep in for my flat feet b) don't make me look like I'm wearing shoes for an 80 year old c) feel like they support my feet and d) that fit my size 9 men's feet 😂 yesterday I managed to find not one but 2 pairs that fit that criteria 👊🏼 #newsandals #flatfeetproblems #flatfeet #comfortbutstylish #winningatlife

Perusteet, jalkaterät. Jalkaterät ovat kehomme perusta. Jos jalkaterä on heikko on perustasi heikko. Päivittäin kohtaan ihmisiä joilla on lättäjalat! Lättäjalka on erittäin epäterveellinen, aiheuttaa koko kehossa ketjureaktion joka huonontaa ryhtiä, kiristää lonkkia &sisäreisiä ja lopulta kehittää vaivasenluita, polvi- ja selkäkipuja. Lättäjalan voi jumpata pois. Katso videota: seiso matolla polvet koukussa, työnnä häntäluu ja peppu alas että lonkat ojentuvat, venytä mattoa sivuttain, paina erityisesti jalkaterän ulkoreunaa mattoon, tunne sisäreunan nousevan, kierrä polvia ulospäin, nosta vielä isovarpaat ylös ja pidä. Tee näin joka päivä. Opettele parempi seisoma-asento paljain jaloin jalkaterän ulkoreuna maassa, häntä alas, lonkat suorina. Monissa videoissani puhun jalkaterän käytöstä, noteeraa tämä ja tee oikein, esim eilisessä pakaravenytysvideossa on jalkaterällä tehtävä. Ole tarkka!
Basics, feet. Our feet are the foundation of our body. Weak feet, weak foundation. Every day I encounter more people in my classes with weak feet, stiff ankles, and non-functioning feet! One more thing about feet that is very common is flat feet. Flat feet are weak, very unhealthy, cause bad posture, tight hips, bunions, knee pain and lower back pain. All these are very bad for overall posture and health. If you have flat week try working to improve posture, work with your feet to strengthen the sole of the feet. Start by standing on a yoga mat, bend knees and press tail down and buttocks down to lengthen hips, stretch mat sideways using feet, press outside edge of feet into mat and stretch so you feel the inside edges of feet lifting, think sligthly turned out knees, lift pubic bone, also lift big toe up and keep it up. Do these every day. Also learn to stand with better posture in your daily life with bare feet, put weight on outside edge of feet, tail down and long hips. Be smart, stay healthy!

This is my turnout. It's a work in progress. I took this pic after my 12th class (I'm currently had my 14th class) I have a whole way to go before I can do a straight line. I just wanted to share. #practicemakesperfect #ballet #firstposition #flatfeet #turnout #beginner #nevertoolate

THESE MUSCLES CAN AFFECT YOUR GAIT .
Tonight we're addressing two muscles that can affect your gait.🏃‍♂️ If you overpronate or oversupinate, check these out : .
Posterior tibialis inverts and helps to raise the arch in the foot. That inversion can play into supination, hence rolling to the outside. While the peroneals help to evert the foot, which will play into more pronation.
.
👉 So...pronators = release the peroneals while supinators = release the tib posterior.🔴
.
Some things to keep in mind as you go through these releases:
.
👣Supinators - find posterior tib by feeling the inside portion of the knee, move down the shin bone, and roll off into a fleshy portion of the inner calve. Place the ball here and slowly press down using your hands and roll down towards the ankle.
.
👣Pronators - go to the outer portion of the knee, feel for a bony part (head of the fibula), place the ball on the ground, and then lightly set your outter calve on the ball below the fibula. Start to press your leg down using your hands and roll down towards the ankle.
.
Roll the tender spots for about ⏱ 30 seconds to 1 minute then move on. Work to your tolerance!! 🙌

Your ankles are often prone to wear and tear due to many different reasons. Flat feet put your ankle in a compromised position, restrictive footwear can cause damage, lack of muscular flexibility can also be an issue and the list goes on.
.
Find time in your daily routine to mobilize the ankle and reverse some of the damage done. Ankle rotations are one of simplest and most effective techniques you can perform (and they make for pretty cool videos).
.
Today I felt some tightness in my ankles so I decided to do some rotations while sitting on the edge of a castle I visited. You can do these while you're sitting at your desk, lounging on your couch or just chilling at the bar. Just listen to your body and mobilize!

Back at it. After 2 mo off to rest my foot... I'm back at it. The first month was a rest. 2 month was out of town with 2 kids. I'll have to ease back in, and with my body pump class next, I only did a mile. My breathing sucked, but my foot/ankle wasn't killing me. Now to not die in an hour of lifting. #collapsedankle #flatfeet #bodypump #joggingtherapy #runningtherapy #getbackoutthere #timetosweat #notafanoftreadmills #workingout

I finally met up with this great & funny guy, Stewart Levy of Custom Foot Australia in his Morisset clinic. With over 40 years of experience in pedorthics, he has mastered the skill of customizing orthotics and other biomechanical prosthetics. He shines with passion and dedication for his work, which I find rare nowadays. He's so easy to talk to, and you can ask him as many questions as you can and he really does take time to answer them and educate you at the same time.He assessed the feet of my 3 children 👶, and as suspected, all have low arches to flat feet with overpronation of the ankles, in different levels of severities. So all 3 ended up having to be fitted with a customized orthotics. It's better to have their feet corrected now than be sorry in the next few years when they can start developing ankle pains, knee pains, and back pains. Feet correction, here we come!👣👣👣

Have you any idea how much pain and agony can be caused by poor foot posture? That achy back, those painful knees, those sore hips??? They may ALL be a direct effect of a collapsed arch (flat foot) or an excessively high arch (without proper support). Give us a call for an orthotic consultation and evaluation. We'll get you fit for new custom orthotics (inserts) made from a foam cast that mimics your EXACT arch in 3D! These orthotics provided by Sole Supports beat store-bought "one size fits all" inserts any day! #flatfeet #pesplanus #pescavus #higharch #footpain #backpain #hippain #kneepain #cltphysicaltherapy #cltphysicaltherapist #charlottephysicaltherapist #CharlottePT #charlottenc #28204 #elizabethneighborhood #uptowncharlotte #fitness #wellness #exercise
