Collapsed Arches- What cause them? Shoes!

If you have ever had a collapse arch then you know the pain that can cause.  In a lot of cases it pulls on the other muscles in the foot causing it to feel like you got a sprained ankle. One of the main reasons this happens is due to improper footwear.  Improper shoes can cause all types of problem with your body, from lower back pain or even a pinched sciatic nerve.  If you are like a lot of my clients, you work in the corporate world where you have to wear heels or dress shoes that in most cases provide little support.  Many seek insoles and other types of shoes inserts to help resolve the issue. There is a reason there are so many types of shoes, because everyone’s feet are different. One of my clients had been having the same problem for a month or so.  He would come in and I would perform our bodywork session that involves advanced deep tissue massage and cranial structural techniques that rebalance and realign the body.  He felt great after he left and within days his body would revert back to the same painful problem.  After further consulting, we had determined that the shoes he was wearing was causing his body to go back out of alignment every time he wore them for a long period of time.  I am happy to say once he got a new pair of shoes that we tested to make sure his body was supported and stabile the pain went aware. In short, proper footwear can make a big difference in your posture and the way you feel, just be sure to change them periodically once the arch support has worn out. Prevention and proper education can save you a lot of pain and discomfort, that why we at Surgical Alternative take the time to understand the underlying problem so that we can properly address the issues.
