a lot of people often encounter such a situation: a pair of new shoes, wear a period of time, found that has the sole heel side especially serious wear and tear, and the other side is intact. When you meet professional guide shoe, he usually will tell you, you varus or valgus you, should choose a correct varus or valgus foot shoes or insole is more suitable for you.
a, varus or valgus foot exactly?
when you stand up, look from behind, the foot of the talus and with normal bone should be in a straight line, and perpendicular to the ground. If you from fragments for calcaneal twisted outwards, is strephenopodia. If you from fragments for calcaneal inward slant crooked, is sufficient evaginate.
in clinic, valgus is also called foot pronation. The structure of the ankle joint, the main can help the sagittal plane ( Plantar flexion and dorsiflexion) , so basically the eversion of valgus position will appear on the feet, and the joints between talus and calcaneus. The abnormal symptoms is characterized by the foot of sinking to the flat and low position, so that the outer edge to bear too much load.
valgus common cause in addition to genetic, abnormal foot bone structure, with support of foot joint ligament function damage, to help support the arches of intrinsic muscle weakness, subtalar joint activity is excessive, the feet are related to the improper use.
most of the clinical cases of spin front feet associated with flat feet, therefore the valgus caused by dysfunction, with flat feet treatment to correct.
because of flat feet valgus structural problems involved and so may not be able to restore the position of the foot, but still suggest that incorporate movement therapy.
this symptom is the opposite of valgus, foot in present state, also known as foot supination ( 旋后) And most of the load falls on the foot of the ongoing.
varus foot common cause in addition to genetic, abnormal foot bone structure, also with the foot joint supporting ligament function is strong, the intrinsic muscles help support arches too rich, insufficient subtalar joint mobility, foot are related to the improper use.
2, valgus and varus foot self exercise therapy:
this two kinds of abnormal foot position, all can through appropriate treatment for improvement, emphasis on treatment, are as follows:
exercises to strengthen the movement of the arch support
training dorsiflexion and plantar flexion, 2 – every time Three groups, each group 30 – 60 seconds, it is recommended that the training of the total time of at least 30 minutes a day.
practice foot fixed movement
five fingers grip, 2 – every time Three groups, each group 30 – 60 seconds, it is recommended that the training of the total time of at least 30 minutes a day.
learning and training of balance, make the body is arranged on the foot all the strong point, see below.
above five fingers grip walk along a set of straight line or curve, suggested to do 2 – at a time Three groups, each group of 10 – 15 back and forth, concrete intensity varies from person to person.
more diligent practice training needs, work can be done, even as a family, parents and the game of life, such as shop keepers who do standards, whose balance better. Insist for a long time there must be a good improvement.
