One of the most common clinical presentations we see at Health Systems Go, is pain under the heel and in the arch of the foot.
How We Help:
Most people think flat feet = weak feet.
Did you know? Pronation (arch lowering) when we hit the ground is actually vital to our movement pattern. If the arch does not lower, the foot is at risk to soft tissue injuries in the forefoot and ankle sprains.
Foot types that have large contact surface area with the ground. The foot is able to re-supinate (aka - arch reactivation) during forward propulsion. Making the foot a strong lever ready to walk, run or jump.
Why do these people have no issues with their flat feet?
This foot type will typically present with a poor arch reactivation during toe off and pain in the mid foot, plantar fascia or inside shin.
At Health Systems Go, we will work closely with you to ensure the condition does not progress or deteriorate further.
