Flat-foot transverse is a disease in which the lateral arch of the foot decreases. According to statistics, people with overweight are more likely to suffer from this ailment. At the same time, the risk of disease with age increases and reaches a peak after 35 years, especially in the female half of the population.
Often, the flatfoot transverse is a consequence of the longitudinal, which, in turn, can manifest itself at an earlier age. The reason for its occurrence is the way of life, for example, if the work is related to staying on the feet for a long time. Often, this type of flatfoot develops in pregnant women, as they are gaining weight, which means that the load on the feet increases. At the same time, with a passive way of life, leg muscles lose their former elasticity, and the process of their aging accelerates.
Flat-foot transverse is characterized with a deviation of the direction of the big toe. This is due to the fact that usually during the movement the load is mainly on 1 metatarsal bone, and in this case the entire abutment is in the region of the middle finger. After that, the thumb is deflected to the outside, and the middle finger changes its shape due to the heavy load and becomes hammer-shaped.
Over time, the direction of the thumb changes more and more, the patient feels strong discomfort while walking. Acute pain occurs when wearing narrow shoes. Then, in the area of attaching a finger to the foot, reddening and a slight swelling form, which is subsequently transformed into a "bone" when the cartilaginous tissue grows. Because of this unequal distribution of load on the feet, calluses and pile-ups arise, which are difficult to get rid of.
If the first signs of the disease occur, you should immediately consult a doctor before it begins to progress. Externally, the flatfoot transverse differs significantly in the size of the foot, it seems to blur. Already after the initial examination, a qualified doctor can put a preliminary diagnosis, to confirm which is carried out planography and radiography.
The method of treatment is chosen only after determining the degree of development of the disease. With early forms, the discomfort sensations of the foot baths based on natural herbs will greatly facilitate, and regular massage and special gymnastics will help. If necessary, the patient is assigned special insoles, called orthopedic. They are able to support the foot in such a position that the load is distributed properly. The most radical measures are applied only with a strong progression of such a disease as transverse flatfoot. The operation in this case involves surgical intervention, through which the direction of the fingers is corrected and the deformed bones are aligned.
In order to avoid all types of flatfoot, it is necessary to approach the development of the child responsibly. Preventive measures include the selection of quality footwear of regular shape, training gait and even posture. It is better to teach your child from childhood to mobile games, as they have a beneficial effect on the muscles of the legs. Excellent impact on the development of children's foot walking barefoot on the grass or sand.
Transverse platypodia: exercises
In the early stages of the disease, it is necessary to actively develop the foot. In any free time, for example, when watching TV or reading a book, you can roll a round ball first with one foot, then the second. Well developed toes is such a simple exercise: we scatter small objects on the floor and try to grab fingers with each of them. After regular exercises, a good result will not be long in coming.
Flattening is the most common deformation of feet. Directly the foot performs the function of human support, movement and depreciation due to a complex structure. In a normal physiological structure, the foot has two arches - a transverse( between the bases of the fingers) and a longitudinal( along the inner edge of the foot).Vaults carry the function of shock absorbers and soften shaking when walking. The bone-ligamentous apparatus of the foot works well when the load that falls on the foot is completely balanced. With the weakening of the muscles and ligaments that connect the 26 bones of the foot, subsidence of the arches and flattening occur, which leads to loss of the spring function. With flatfoot this function goes to the spine, knee, ankle and hip joint. These joints are not intended to perform this function and cope badly with it, and therefore quickly fail.
Causes of flatfoot formation.
There are quite a few states that lead to flat feet, here are some of them.
- Congenital flat foot is a fairly rare pathology found in 11.5% of the total number of foot diseases. The cause may be various pathologies of intrauterine development of the fetus, due to ionizing radiation, harmful habits of the mother.
- Children with rickets develop a rickety foot, as a result of a decrease in the production of vitamin D, the strength of bones decreases under mechanical stress, the musculoskeletal apparatus is weakened.
- Paralytic platypodia develops after the transferred poliomyelitis, and the degree of flatfoot is directly dependent on the severity of paralysis.
- Traumatic platypodia develops in fractures of the foot bones or with improperly intergrown fractures.
- Static flatfoot is one of the most common types of flatfoot. The main reasons for it are reduced muscle tone, excessive fatigue due to prolonged stay on the legs.
Symptoms of flat feet.
Usually a person who spends a lot of time on his feet does not notice the development of flat feet, and the appearance of pains and unpleasant sensations in the legs and feet is associated with fatigue. There are several basic signs on which you can suspect the development of this terrible disease in yourself.
• Your legs begin to swell by the end of the day, marks of socks appear, there may be a feeling of heaviness and cramps that may not be long and pass after the massage • You begin to notice that the length of the working day remains the same and the legs are fatigued much faster.• Shoes start to wear out much faster than before, mostly on the inside.• Periodically creates the feeling that the leg has increased in length, and because of this, you have to buy shoes for a size larger.
There are several stages of foot deformation, the passage of which leads to complete clinical flat feet. The prodromal stage, the stage of alternating flat foot, the stage of development of the flat foot, the stage of flat-footed foot and the contractual flatfoot are distinguished.
The first stage of flatfoot is manifested by pain in the foot and gastrocnemius muscle after a long load on the foot, a statistical nature, a pronounced feeling of fatigue appears.
In the , the intermittent flatness stage is characterized by pain intensification towards the end of the day, the pain arises from overexertion of the ligamentous foot apparatus which maintains the optimal position of the foot. Increased fatigue often appears in the middle of the day, and people with flat feet have to change their activities or more often rest. The longitudinal arch of the foot at the end of the working day visually flattened, but after rest, especially in the mornings, the height of the vault is restored.
The stage of development of flat foot occurs when, due to further overfatigue of the leg and foot muscles, the longitudinal arch of the foot is not restored to rest after rest. The patient quickly develops fatigue due to fatigue of the muscles. The pain becomes permanent and aching due to overstretching of the ligamentous apparatus. The height of the longitudinal arch decreases due to the elongation of the foot and the expansion of its longitudinal part. The gait changes, the amount of movement in the foot joint is limited. In this stage of the disease there are three degrees.
Diagnostic measures for flat feet.
In addition to clinical signs, there are several methods that can determine the severity of this pathology. These include planktonography, the analysis of the face line, the dodging and clinical and radiographic methods of diagnosis.
Plantography - a method that allows the determination of the expression of flat feet with the help of prints. The feet are smeared with methylene blue solution, then the footprints are made on a blank sheet of paper, working on the feet evenly with all the weight.
Friedland's method is the determination of the percentage of height of the foot and its length.
The clinical method of measurement is to construct a triangle with a base equal to the distance from the metatarsal head I to the heel of the calcaneus. The top of the triangle is at the top of the inner ankle, one leg extends to the apex of the calcaneal angle, the other to the head I of metatarsal bone. Normally the height of the vault is 55 - 60 cm.
The X-ray method is based on the construction of a triangle on the lateral radiograph of the foot that connects the apex of the heel of the calcaneus with the metatarsal I head, and the vertex of the triangle falls on the lower edge of the scaphoid bone, the vertex angle should normally be 120- 130 degrees.
Determination of the degree of flatfoot by X-ray.
Flat-footedness is one of those diseases with which young people are not called to military service( service in the army).II and III degrees of the disease are an absolute contraindication for service in the armed forces. This is due to the large power loads that a man with a flatfoot can not bear. Otherwise, the pain syndrome may increase, and in the future, with the preservation of this load, go to one of many complications.
Flat feet in children.
Newborns are characterized by well-defined arches of feet, but the children's foot is filled with fatty tissue, and when viewed it appears flat. Since 3 years, there has been a significant strengthening and development of the ligamentous apparatus, due to which there is a significant increase in the height of the arch and the foot begins to acquire the appearance of the foot of an adult person. The older the child, the more pronounced the vaulted structure. Thus, the external flat feet of a child can not be taken as a true disease.
The development of flat feet in children is promoted by congenital disorders of the ligamentous apparatus, muscle weakness, obesity, endocrine diseases, improperly selected footwear. Due to its anatomical features, the definition of flat feet in children by the fingerprint method is not always informative and can give a false result.
Very often, children can not complain about leg pain or discomfort, so periodic examination by an orthopedic doctor is an integral part of the annual medical check-up. Treatment of flat feet in children is reduced to rest, temporary prohibition of exercise, massage of the plantar part and walking barefoot on uneven surfaces, it is possible to design orthopedic insoles.
Treatment of flat feet.
Treat flat feet is difficult, and it will not be possible to say with certainty after a period of time that this disease is a thing of the past. Completely get rid of this pathology can only be in childhood, because the ligamentous apparatus and the bone system is pliable enough. In adult patients, this disease can only be stopped with the help of special rehabilitation measures.
Parents need to remember - "the earlier the symptoms of flatfoot, the more favorable conditions for stopping the progression."
Treatment should be combined and include removal of the pain syndrome, strengthening of the ligamentous apparatus and the muscles of the foot. To relieve the pain, you need to use anesthetic ointments with a relaxing effect and physiotherapy.
To begin the treatment is necessary with gymnastics, which can be performed daily at home. The therapeutic form of gymnastics is used to achieve correction of the arch of the foot, strengthens the muscles, trains the ligament apparatus, forms the correct type of gait. There is a large number of exercises that are selected individually and depend on age, complaints, position of the foot and its shape. All exercises and their intensity to you will be picked up by an orthopedist.
Treatment in the stage of flat deformation of the foot should be strictly differentiated, along with exercise therapy and massage it is necessary to wear insoles that support the relief of painful areas and correct the deficiencies in the initial stage of the disease and orthopedic footwear at grade II, and at grade III it is often shownsurgical treatment.
With congenital planovalgus deformation of foot of easy degree, children are treated with foot and shin massage, physiotherapy exercises. When a child begins to walk, it is necessary to make orthopedic shoes for him. With insufficiently effective treatment and late treatment, surgical treatment is indicated.
The correct choice of shoes is of great importance in the treatment of flatfoot. Beautiful shoes with high heels, of course, decorate the legs of any fashionista, but do not wear them all the time. Otherwise, after a short time you will only need to wear orthopedic shoes. When choosing shoes, pay special attention to the flexibility and comfort of the sole, the height of the heel( not more than 3-4 cm), it is better to avoid shoes on the platform and excessively wide or narrow.
Complications of flatfoot.
• Strabism in walking, spinal curvature, unnatural posture • Pain in the knees, hips, back and feet • Dystrophic changes in the muscles of the legs and back • Disease of the feet themselves( deformation, curvature of the fingers, calluses, spurs, neuritis) • Diseases of the spine(herniated intervertebral discs, osteochondrosis), hip and knee joint diseases • Growth of nails.
Flat feet prevention.
To prevent the development of flatfoot, it is necessary to carry out preventive measures every week. The priority that needs to be done is to choose the right footwear, exclude the wearing of shoes with high heels, the optimal height is 3 - 4 cm. Periodically conduct an examination with an orthopedic doctor, at least once a year. People who have any problems with their legs should be examined more often. It is also necessary to do gymnastics and do physical exercises for the feet. Foot baths and massage will help relax the muscles and relieve tension after a hard day. It is necessary to get rid of excess weight, as it contributes to an additional burden on the spine and legs.

Flatness: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment and Prevention
What is Platypodia
Philistine opinion that flatfoot is not a serious disease, unworthy of attention, many are misleading. Many dismiss the first symptoms of flat feet, writing off them for fatigue or uncomfortable shoes, do not attach importance to those bells that the body signals about the rapidly approaching illness. Meanwhile, flat feet - a serious problem, because of which men are not taken into the army, and a "yellow ticket" in our country is simply not given.
So what is a flatfoot? From the point of view of medicine, this is a flattening of the arches of the foot and a complete loss of all its damping functions. That is, the foot takes shape, because of which a normal, physiological movement becomes impossible.
Normally, the foot has two arches - longitudinal, along the inner edge of the foot, and transverse between the bases of the fingers. Depending on where the violations occur, distinguish between longitudinal and transverse platypodia. In especially severe cases, doctors diagnose combined flat feet - when there is a flattening of both the longitudinal and transverse arches of the foot.
At first glance, such a violation of the structure of the foot does not seem dangerous. The person continues to walk, lead an active lifestyle. But soon the deformation of the foot will respond to problems throughout the body. A stop in the process of walking is not a separate element, it is part of a single complex. The compacted foot stops performing one of its functions - spring, and then the spine has to compensate for shaking when walking. In addition, the load increases also on the joints of the legs: ankle, hip and knee. Since they are not meant to compensate for nature by shaking, they very soon begin to declare this with pain and inflammation.
Threatens flat feet
Pains appear when joints are tired of compensating for the loss of natural depreciation. By this time, not only joints of the legs begin to change, pathological changes occur in the spine, posture disorders may develop, and later - scoliosis. Chronic osteochondrosis, radiculitis, herniated intervertebral discs - this can be a consequence of flat feet.
In severe cases, failure to take action can lead to a severe chronic disease - arthrosis. And this is the first step on the sad path to disability. Often, those who suffer from flat feet, eventually add to the list of diseases inflammation of the meniscus.
In addition to the already mentioned problems with the joints of the legs and the spine, flat feet can cause other pathological conditions. They will not bring death to death, but they will always spoil the mood or, as doctors say, they will significantly reduce the quality of life.
It is unlikely that permanent pain in the legs can be called an indicator of a high quality of life. The pain will cause your body to be protected - and your gait will acquire a previously uncommon weight. A clubfoot may appear, which will not add to your grace.
A huge "bone" on the big toe - this is the usual consequence of neglected flat feet. In a number of pathologies of the foot due to flat feet - the curvature of the toes, calluses. These are not only aesthetic problems, they are quite painful problems. The so-called heel spur - Mardan's neuralgia, which is accompanied by burning pains - in 90% of cases occurs due to flat feet.
Symptoms of flatfoot( how to identify)
The first symptoms of flatfoot you can notice yourself. You quickly get tired when walking and even faster if you have to stand for a long time in one place. By the end of the day, fatigue in the legs, a feeling of heaviness, swelling, especially in the area of the ankles. Sometimes in the evening there are cramps, often - nocturnal. Heels no longer bring pleasure - in shoes with heels it becomes very difficult to walk. The leg as if grown, habitual shoes become small and you have to buy shoes for half a size, or even a whole size more. Particularly noticeable increase in foot width - are becoming inaccessible to narrow shoes. Heels on shoes wear out unevenly, on the inside wear more.
If you find more than three of these symptoms in your body, this should be the reason to undergo a medical examination. However, such symptoms are also characteristic of another serious leg disease - varicose veins. By the way, varicosity very often becomes a true companion of flatfoot.
To distinguish one from another, you can conduct an elementary test at home: step with a wet foot on a piece of paper. On a print, you can determine the presence of flat feet. The deformed foot does not have recesses characteristic for the healthy foot along the inner edge.
Causes of flatfoot
One of the causes of flatfoot is considered a hereditary predisposition - congenital weakness of the ligamentous apparatus. If in your family someone suffered from flat feet, then you are more likely to suffer from a flattening of the foot.
Weakness of the ligament of the foot and lower leg can be caused by low physical activity. Usually such people suffer from seated occupations who do not bother to exercise and play sports. In the risk group representatives of professions who have to stand a lot: hairdressers, sellers, cooks.
Overweight can cause flat feet. For the same reason, many women after the birth note that they have "grown up" leg. Most often this is not so much a real "growth" of leg length as a significant change in its width due to a large body mass gain during pregnancy.
Uncomfortable shoes, constant wearing of high heels - all this can also provoke the development of flat feet even in young people.
Flat-footedness is not a cosmetic drawback, it is a serious disease. It is insidious in that it develops gradually, imperceptibly, it is impossible to immediately detect its manifestations. Meanwhile, flatfoot treatment is a serious problem. You have to struggle with flat feet throughout your life, especially if you are at risk for a job or because of excess weight. A complete cure for flat feet is possible only in childhood, so if you are already out of a tender age, prepare all your life to fight for the beauty and health of your feet.
Once you get the diagnosis of "flat feet", you can never say with relief: "I'm healed!".Therefore, the task of people suffering from the initial stage of flatfoot is to preserve the present state for as long as possible, to prevent the development of more severe forms, to retain the shape of the foot without ugly deformations. The earlier the disease is detected, the less the deformation of the foot.
Treatment should be comprehensive. On the one hand, it is necessary to identify and get rid of disease-provoking factors. On the other hand, constantly strengthen the ligament apparatus. In addition, it is necessary to prevent the development of complications. And, finally, to remove the pain syndrome.
To determine the cause of flatfoot, it is not necessary to consult a doctor - it's critical to assess your lifestyle. When you find the factor or factors that have caused flatfoot, make every effort to exclude them. Have extra weight - lose weight. At work, spend the whole day on your feet - change jobs or even try to take breaks. Love to wear shoes with high heels - change to more comfortable shoes! Beauty requires sacrifice, but not in the form of loss of health.
In the case of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, and flat feet to exactly this is the case, therapeutic exercise is indicated. It strengthens muscles, trains the ligament apparatus, corrects the setting of the foot bones, forms the correct position of the foot when walking.
There are many special corrective exercise complexes that take into account the age, weight, the degree of flat feet, complaints, age. Only an orthopedic physician will be able to choose a complex that is right for you, he will advise on the intensity with which to perform the exercises. The advice to consult a doctor is especially important for those who have a flatfoot for a long time past the first stage, and there were visible complications: the size of the foot increased, a "bone" appeared on the thumb. Incorrectly chosen exercises can aggravate an already difficult situation.
If the flatfoot is only in the initial stage, that is, you experience a certain discomfort, a feeling of fatigue, but no apparent changes yet, then treatment can be dealt with on your own. Doctors-orthopedists are advised to adhere to the four universal rules, which are both the treatment and prevention of flatfoot.
Home treatment of flatfoot, flatfoot prevention
Rule one. Walk barefoot when possible. This is the most affordable way to massage the feet. In addition, in addition to the effect of massage for the treatment and prevention of flatfoot, you massage on the foot biologically active points that are responsible for the health of internal organs. Walk barefoot as often as possible.
Rule two. Have a rest. Especially, if you strongly strain your legs during the working day. Alternate activity with rest, work in a standing position with activity sitting. Find during the day time to lie down for about five minutes with your legs high. Ideally, if after an hour and a half work standing, you will rest for ten minutes.
Rule third Do charging for the stop. The most accessible is a massage mat. Walk on it you need at least twice a day for ten minutes. Do not be superfluous will be special exercises that you can do even at work. In the sitting position, you must alternately remove the heel from the floor, then remove the socks from the floor. If you can afford to take off your shoes at least for a while, then try to grab small items with your toes. These same exercises can be performed standing. In the standing position, you can be like heels, on toes, on the outer arches of feet. Do such exercises at least two minutes twice a day - and the condition of the feet will improve, and then gradually decrease, and then completely disappear the pain.
Rule Fourth .Properly selected shoes. If a doctor diagnosed a flatfoot, then with high-heeled shoes, if you do not completely say goodbye, then significantly limit its use, leaving for especially solemn occasions. Perhaps, it is necessary to pay attention to special orthopedic footwear. Or at least get special orthopedic insoles. They will help relieve the painful areas of the foot and correct the deformities that have already appeared. In addition, the insole will take on the functions of the shock absorber, compensate for the loss of foot of its natural functions.
All these measures will allow you to prevent the disease from spoiling your leg, to keep health, beauty and youth of your legs as long as possible.

Flatness - causes and treatment
"A destructive foot or flat feet creates a colossal strain to which all joints are exposed. In some people, flat feet lead to arthritis of the entire bone system. It is with such a violation that doctors often encounter in their practice, because it is the most destructive. "Varus anomaly of the anterior part of the foot was called the destructive foot due to chronic and sometimes fatal disorders in the entire body.
Treatment of flatfoot
In order to check whether you have a flatfoot or not, you just need to grease your feet with some fat cream and stand on a clean ironed sheet of paper. When the traces are printed, carefully look at the resulting pattern. In the case of flat feet, there is an impression of the entire foot, if the flat foot is absent, there will be individual traces on the paper from the side of the foot, fingers and heel.
Orthopedic insoles for flat feet
For the treatment of flat feet, look for shoes with a combined sole, in which the insert of hard material is made to the full length of the sole, for example, "Adidas Cairo".There are sneakers in which the sole has a rigid insert only in the heel area. As Dr. Cheryl Rigter-Crewe believes, for the treatment of flatfoot you need shoes that cushion the heel well, but at the same time it does not allow the foot to bend too much in the central part. Solution: orthopedic insoles and inserts. According to Professor Kenneth Holt, "you fill the space between the surface of the earth and the foot."
The orthopedic insert is placed on the inside to prevent too much rolling of the foot inside. You can purchase orthopedic insoles for the treatment of flat feet without a doctor's prescription. The following are recommended by AAPSM:
- «Pro Lab Gold»,
How to treat flat feet?1.
It is recommended to walk barefoot in sand, grass and even stones in summer, and if you walk barefoot at home, you will not get much effect. To treat flat feet it is necessary to walk in nature.2.
Try to take different foot baths. Treatment of flat feet can be done with the addition of chamomile or make a bath with sea salt. At the end of taking a warm bath, rinse your feet with cool water. Be sure to find on the Internet a foot massage and regularly spend it.3.
Buy special massage mats to heal flat feet and scatter around rooms in places where you have to stand for a while. For example, in the bathroom near the washbasin or near the stove. On the rug, try to perform such an exercise: roll the foot from the toe to the heel and climb on the toes.4.
Special insole instep for the treatment of flat feet is sold in stores. Be sure to buy such insteps, consult with an orthopedic physician to choose the right model.5.
Do gymnastics stop from flat feet. Use a rolling pin. We roll the rolling pin back and forth. Such an exercise as collecting scattered small objects with your feet. Walking on tiptoe. Walking on socks. Walking on one side of the foot is external / internal.
Causes of flatfoot
When walking, the foot bends naturally, providing a damping effect when lowering to the ground. This bending of the foot is called "pronation".However, this action should take only a few seconds before the end of the step, until the heel begins to break away from the ground. If the rolling is too long, then you have a flat foot! Over time, structures that support the shape and position of the foot begin to collapse;Joints, ligaments and muscles supporting the arch of the foot, lose this ability. This is the main cause of flatfoot.
Causes of flatfoot development:
- plantar fasciitis is the cause of flat feet - a painful condition of tendons and ligaments on the sole of the foot;
- Inflammation of the periosteum - painful sensations along the tibia or lower leg;
- disease of the medial side of the knee joint - pain on the inner side of the knee.
- neuromas are also one of the causes of flatfoot, the condition of the foot caused by its abnormal function, as a result of which the bones clamp the nerve, usually at the base of the third and fourth finger;Neuromas are characterized by pain, swelling and / or inflammation of the nerve;symptoms include acute pain, burning sensation and even loss of sensitivity in the affected area;The
- bag on the outside of the big toe is a protrusion of the joint of the big toe, also known as the metatarsophalangeal joint;
- hammer-shaped curvature of the toes - a condition in which the fingers are bent and begin to bend inward, leading to an external deviation of the joint of the thumb;
- dislocation of the lateral ankle - stretching structures on the outside of the ankle.
Effects of flat feet
What is the danger of flat feet?
Initially, the development of flatfoot you will encounter minor problems: inflammation of the periosteum or scar tissue along the soles, the so-called plantar fasciitis.
If not treated, flat feet can cause much more serious problems in other parts of the body, because when you finish the step, your foot still tries to take the lower leg forward, which at this time wants to go back. Two opposing forces create a huge skew in the knee joint, which pinches the periarticular capsule. Dr. Holt explains that skewing with flat feet actually starts to destroy the supporting structures of the knee joint. The damage is caused to the joints of the femur with the patella and tibia. The reason for this is flatfoot. Pain with flat feet usually occurs on the inside of the joint. Sometimes the inward forces arising in the lower part of the foot even cause an increase in rotational movements in the thigh and back.
If the knee joint is fixed stably, the stress passes from the foot through the shin and thigh to the hip joint. Because of this, excessive stress arises in it. Flat feet can also worsen posture, as your body will lean forward, which will lead to stoop.
Another serious consequence of flatfoot is the so-called ileal-tibial ligament syndrome. This ligament is located between the upper and lower leg, it rubs against the outer wall of the thigh at each step. Bending of the anterior part of the foot with flat feet leads to densification of the lateral ligament of the knee joint. In this condition, inflammation and pain occur on the outside of the joint. When this ligament loses its elasticity and weakens, it causes increased pain. Typically, the pain occurs after a kilometer of running and subsides after a stop. When the heel strikes strongly against the ground, the pressure on the lateral surface and the stiffness gradually rise from the heel to the thigh.
Now you know all the causes of flatfoot, the ways of its treatment and the consequences that can arise if you do not take measures to eliminate it.© medmoon.ru
What are the causes of flatfoot and how to prevent it?
I have a congenital flatfoot, I'm 38 years old, I've been tortured all my life, I can not warn you.
wrong shoes.and pedupredit just shoes with a sticky knee in childhood or the right form of
weakness of the ligamentous apparatus of the foot. To give the baby a foot massage. Walking barefoot on an uneven surface, there are special children's boards for feet( by the type of a washing board), to buy a child shoes with insoles insole.
agree with Elena. But only external action is of little help.the ligamentous apparatus must be treated internally by a healthy organism.and connect the swim.
can not yet be found people who will study this problem thoroughly before the cause of the pathogens or this gene where it fails.even if they come up with something tolkolovat money and use the patient for life.
ligamentous device is one for the whole organism. Protect joints from destruction. Gymnastics and swimming for life-help.
Heredity plays a big role. And walked barefoot, and did not get out of the water. And special gymnastics did with the ball. But my father has a flat feet and I have. And terrible. And a weak ligamentous apparatus. Apparently, too innate. Since my childhood I remember there was a problem with skates. Then the boots were low. Wild pain in the ankle during riding and hours after. None of my friends or sister had this. And the ligamentous apparatus of the back. The first pain in the spine began as early as 16. It would be an exhausting rural work. But I grew up in the city. Everything was in moderation.
Our body is a single entity and that's why flat feet can be a projection of poor internal organs or joint muscles. I have a lot of excess weight for a long time, but it did not bother me especially, as I am a man of the active and active. But the last 2 years the condition of the feet has worsened, the cervical collar zone was hurting from sitting at the computer, it became painful and difficult to walk.2 years ago I went to the masseur, to the osteopath - it became easier, but this summer I got to a wonderful masseur: she kneads not only fats, but every finger of the hands-feet, the entire foot, all the muscles. Did massage 2 times a week, now 1 time. I made individual insoles in the orthopedic center, I hope that after a while I will change to less "flat feet", and I hope that in a few years I will completely give up insoles, because I also found a diet for weight loss and maintaining a stable weight. When the masseur stretched me and put my muscles in place, many problems took off. For example: 26 years of excruciating leg cramps - forgot about this problem! !!!Good luck to you!
