It is very likely that you can correct your Flat Feet. While every situation is unique, I present five methods that have helped me attain a stronger and more stable foot.
Babies are often born with flat feet, which may persist well into their childhood. This occurs because children’s bones and joints are flexible, causing their feet to flatten when they stand. Young babies also have a fat pad on the inner border of their feet that hides the arch. You still can see the arch if you lift your baby up on the tips of the toes, but it disappears when he’s standing normally. The foot may also turn out, increasing the weight on the inner side and making it appear even more flat.
I’m ticking all these boxes. APT, tight calves and especially along the outer edge of my shin, cramping, weak hamstrings and glutes, pronated feet, squashed toes, no toe spread, weak big toe ( it hardly moves independently). I cannot get any power through my legs so walking stairs any weight redistribution or balance is now a challenge. I am at a very low point. It took me a long time to work out why. Now wearing barefoot shoes and going to see a podiatrist but I’m sure they will tell me what your videos have confirmed. The problem is these exercises are frustrating and take a lot of effort to get any reaction in my feet. I will have to persevere so I am glad to hear from you that you have overcome the same issues.
I’m glad you are taking the chance to correct your feet. It will take some time and effort, but after 4 weeks, you will get an idea of what is exercises are working. I know it is easy to dive deep, but the feet in the early stages are not used to heavy dedicated exercise, no more than 3x a week. As you practice, you will adapt. buy some toe spreaders or wear Vibram Five Fingers to allow your toes to spread.
