1. Why does the arch of the foot collapse?
When we stand, run, jump or land on the ground, the arch of the foot will spread the weight of the foot. The plantar fascia is like a spring and can absorb the body's weight. The only muscle will also try to contract to prevent excessive stretching of the fascia. However, if the force is too strong (falling from a height) or the stress lasts for too long, the soft tissues of the sole will become strained or fatigued, making it impossible to support the arch of the foot. If you continue to load the foot, it will cause the arch of the foot to collapse.
2. What damage does the arch of the foot cause?
The arch of the foot is collapsed, the sole of the foot is almost flat on the ground, the spring is stretched to a certain extent, the elasticity and shock absorption ability are reduced, and the cushioning elasticity becomes poor. Excessive stretching of the plantar fascia will cause pain, and changes in the body's center of gravity will cause greater pressure on the thumb and toe joints and increase the chance of hallux valgus. It can also change the angle of the knee joint and affect the balance of the spine. It cannot be ignored.
3. Matters needing attention:
(1). Gradually adapt to the insole, starting from 1 hour a day, adding up to 1 hour a day, preferably half an hour a day. When you go home, don't be impatient. This does not cure the disease and may damage your feet because the foot deformity needs to be corrected slowly, and corrections too quickly can strain muscles and ligaments.
(2). When wearing orthopedic insoles, you must wear soft shoes instead of hard shoes or high heels. This orthopedic insole has a good corrective effect for patients with mild flat feet.
