Flat Feet

Focus on two periods in a person's life that may arise in the formation of starting torque of static flatfoot in varying degrees. Pregnancy is a period of full flowering of the female body. At the However, this period can become an agent provocateur number of undesirable consequences. Since we are talking about feet, it should be noted that during pregnancy, especially in recent months may be "settling" of the foot as longitudinal and transverse. Why is that? Weight gain of pregnant women, decreased physical, muscular activity during this period are natural to the whole organism, but for the lower neblagopryatnymi extremities. How does this affect the feet? Muscles, ligaments, support the arches of the foot, can not cope with the increased demands of the above reasons.

This leads to the initial development and clinical the appearance of flat feet – foot flattens out, there are pains. Already in this period may be necessary to use larger size shoes. By the way, pregnancy can often cause initial venous disorders of lower limbs and, as a result – the development of varicose veins "venous mesh" so-called "stars" on the skin surface of the small veins. Anticipating such additional burden on the body of a pregnant woman should carry out preventive measures, which we'll talk further. Another, fairly common cause of the initial manifestations of flat feet, are injuries of the lower limbs, forcing to walk with crutches, as well as injuries and illnesses with prolonged exposure to the need bedrest. The reason is the same – reduced overall activity, but consequently, the load on the muscles, which become unable to perform fully its function in starting the load on feet, resulting in the arch "settle." In cases where the victim is forced to go on crutches, body weight falls on one leg. The foot is loaded, is spread. At the same time broken leg does not participate in the walk, not loaded, and atrophy of muscles.

Start the load on the injured limb without preliminary training of the muscles often provokes the beginning of the flat foot. During pregnancy, injuries, illnesses, with a decrease or complete cessation of the load of the lower limbs for a long time be taken into account and control two things: 1. Maintain tone and strength of muscle systems 2. Tselenopravlenno maintain the correct anatomical position of the stop under load until it is restored muscle activity and force . How to prevent the development of staticheskogoo flat under the above conditions of the human body will be discussed in one of the following discussions on the prevention of flatfoot. Please be aware that prevention flat – is prevention and follow-up of possible foot deformities and toes. Source:
