When 26 Foot Bones Fail to Stay UP...

Fantastic Foot Fact

You’re the victim of a Fallen Arch!

It’s that simple.

26 bones in their MASS Posture equals Good Shock Absorption.

-But Why?-

Fallen arches are most commonly due to inadequate support against the overwhelming force of gravity and one’s body weight.

In other words, the mass produced shoes you buy and wear are not made to support your foot shape.

Foot Arch Reset

This particular treatment for fallen arches is a sequence of exercises designed to help isolate and strengthen the lateral arch and metatarsal arch of the foot.

You can only strengthen muscles, not the seat-belt like ligamentous supporting arches.

Muscles are like rubber bands whereas ligaments are like seat-belts; try stretching a seat-belt. In other words, you cannot strengthen that which doesn’t have the ability to become stronger. Ligaments hold bones in place and are subject to alignment; end of story.
