LET YOUR FEET MOVE
👣
Joints in the human body are points where two bones meet with movement permitted between them. Evolution creates joints in the body as areas designed to move
👣
The foot is packed with joints - 33 of them in each foot. That means the foot is supposed to move…..A LOT. Its a unique structure that acts as both a mobile unit to accommodate to the ground below you and also a stable platform tensioned by muscles to create a lever to push off from
👣
Traditional footwear is far too rigid. Unless you can twist, bend and collapse a shoe, its going to limit motion of your foot. Limiting motion over time takes the foot from being a mobile articulating structure to being  rigid, stiff and weak structure
👣
Orthotics are even worse - they’re like a cast that completely eliminates movement of the foot. Escape traditional rigid shoes and orthotics to reclaim the mobile and strong feet evolution designed us to have

MORTONS NEUROMA
👣
Morton’s neuroma involves numbness and pain produced in the space between the 3rd and 4th metatarsal heads, where one of the nerves of the foot becomes compressed. The constant compression on the nerve causes inflammation and irritation. Pain is typically felt on the ball of the foot and can sometimes radiate into the toes
👣
As the nerve becomes inflamed and enlarged, it is further irritated because of the increased pressure between the bones of the foot
👣
The main cause of this condition is shoes that are too tight and spending very little time barefoot. The foot should be allowed to splay naturally, instead of being tightly bound by shoes all day long
👣
The best corse of treatment is catching it early and releasing the bottom of the foot and using toe spreaders to create extra space between the bones of the foot. Allowing the condition to progress, may lead to fibrous tissues forming around the inflamed nerve which may require surgery to remove
👣
For further explanation of mortons neuroma and how to get rid of it listen to our recent Foot-Cast posted on the TFC YouTube channel (link in bio)

Nemesis of the human foot: the flip flop
👣
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

THE DANGER OF HEELED FOOTWEAR
👣👣
wearing a shoe with an elevated heel might seem harmless but it has real effects on your posture upstream. These postural changes change how your body moves by making certain muscles more dominant (quads especially) and others weak (glutes)
👣👣
Over time, heeled footwear is a big culprit for knee problems and tight ankles so avoid them whenever you can. Finding a zero drop flat shoe can be quite difficult but taking the time to find one makes a massive difference in your joint health and movement patterns
👣👣
Most modern day running shoes and dress shoes have this nasty heel lift so beware of the consequences and transition to zero drop barefoot footwear. Your body will thank you
