When the foot strikes the ground all 33 joints must have full springiness, joint play and mobility. Any excessive movement, stiffness or locking of any one of these joints can lead to abnormal stress on the area. A stiffness or locking of the inside portion of the first metatarsal cuneiform joint, the second and third metatarsal cuneiform joints or what I call the arch spring! A weakness in the middle spring suspension system muscle of the arch spring of the foot (the tibialis posterior muscle). If you see any flaws in your walk or run then you MUST work on your walking and running form and technique. You should also be doing gentle calf stretching exercises. This will reduce stress on the plantar fascia in two ways. The first manner in which a relaxation of the tension in the calf muscles can help heel pain is that it will reduce the direct pull backwards on the heel bone (calcaneus). The second reason is a little bit more complicated, but essentially it is that a tight achilles tendon and calf muscles causes the rearfoot to move in a manner that causes over pronation as your leg and body move forward over your foot. To strengthen the muscles in your arch toe curls or "doming" can be done. Most cases of heel spurs can be treated by the simple, conservative means of our Heel Cups, Heel Seats, Heel Pads, Arch Supports, and Insoles They use acupressure as an effective way to treat the pain associated with heel spurs. Our unique treatments not only effectively treat the pain, they also reverse the heel spur growth. They cradle the heel and arch of the foot, providing the support and reinforcement of the heel which is necessary to relieve stress and pain in the tissue around the heel spur. Night Splints or taping are both very useful for heel spur treatment since they help stretch your plantar fascia while you’re sleeping. Heel spurs can be caused due to many reasons. A type of pain in the heel that is detected in children is known Sever's disease. This is one condition that is caused by damage to the cartilage. Conducting activities or any type of strain that is applied has the potential to break the cartilage, thereby causing pain. The cartilage that is situated along the outline of the heel gets injured and suffers damage, leading to an uncomfortable feeling in the heel. This condition is treated by placing heel pads in the shoes. In fact, elite athletes and even students in grade schools are now doing high impact training to bolster explosive power by conditioning the body to react elastically. They call it plyometrics and it’s employed at every training center in the world from the Olympic training center and currently the grade schools. I learned the principles of plyometrics from the father of modern plyometrics, Yuri Verkhoshansky, at the Central Institute of Physical Culture and Sports Sciences, in Moscow, USSR, in 1989, when I was 27 years old. Watch the video above as Dr. Stoxen explains How the spring suspension system muscles help you spring off the ground!
I want to be the woman he will give his hoodie to wear and cuddles up close to when ever it is chilly, he'll be the one that shows up behind me, wraps his arms around my waist, catches me off guard and whispers you look spectacular.
