Today we're going to talk about arch supports and how they could actually make someone's flat feet worse. My theory is that the cause of flat feet is either a manganese deficiency at birth or a vitamin D deficiency at birth. I believe this could set a child up to have either a weakened structure of the arch or a bone malformation.
Over time, I have found that stretching and working on the front part of the leg and the top of the foot brings much more relief than working on the parts that are in pain, like the under part of the leg or the bottom of the foot.
If the bottom of the foot is cramping, by stretching the muscles in the top part of the foot that stem up into the front part of the leg, you will send signals to the muscle that's cramping. These signals will relax the muscle.
What you could do for flat feet:
1. Stretch the feet (try my unique flat feet stretch)
2. Get a foot massage (have them work not only on the foot but the front part of the lower leg as well)
3. Allow your feet to strengthen on their own (take the arch supports out)
