Concerned pathologies

  • Pronation of the foot

    The pronation is primarily defined in relation to a neutral or universal foot. The pronator foot represents 40% of the population.

     Pronation of the footUniversal foot

    The pronation is a dynamic definition of the foot roll while walking or running, which is mainly concentrated on the interior side.Press and hold on the ground on the interior side

    The distribution of ground support is therefore more important on the inner edge.

    Logically we will observe a more pronounced wear of the inner part of the shoe sole.

    An excessive foot pronation is associated with the sagging of the arch of the foot.

    The pronation of the foot may be hereditary so monitor your children’s feet.

    In order to correct your pronation, reduce the tendency of your arch of the foot to sag and fight against the premature wear of your shoes;

    - Place the Supinator Heels inside all your shoes in order to correct your pronation.

    - If the wear of the shoes is too pronounced repair them or replace them.

  • Calcaneal Valgus

    It is the slope of the heel bone (calcaneus) inwardly. Note that the axis of a “normal” heel is perpendicular to the ground.

     Heel with calcaneal valgusNormal heel

    The classical complications of this posture are;

    - the sagging of the arch of the foot until reaching flat feet;

    - the risk to develop a hallux valgus;

    - and with age, the appearance of hyper pressure on the inner side of the foot .

    When observing the shoe you will get the confirmation of the valgus by the deformation of the rear stiffener sloping inward.

    The calcaneal valgus may be hereditary so monitor your children’s feet.

    In order to correct the calcaneal valgus, reduce the tendency of your arch of the foot to sag and fight against the premature wear of your shoes;

    Place the Supinator Heels inside all your shoes to straighten up the heel.

    - If the wear of the shoes is too pronounced repair them or replace them.

  • Genu valgum

    The legs have an X shape, which means that, when the knees touch there is a distance between the internal malleolus.

    Legs suffering of genu valgum

    This deviation of the legs leads to a difficult and unsightly way of walking.

    There may be painful repercussions at the knee level as the knees don’t work in their normal axis.

    The genu valgum may be hereditary, so monitor your children’s legs.

    To fight against the genu valgum :

     - Place Supinator Heels inside all your shoes.

     - If your shoes are too distorted repair them or replace them.

  • Flat feet

    The flat foot has two symptoms: the collapse of the arch and the calcaneal valgus* (the heel bone leans inward).

    Photo flat feet 3rd degree, total collapse of the arch

    While walking or running, the foot roll is in pronation*.

    It is often associated with a genu valgum*.

    There are 3 degrees to define a flat foot.

    At each step, the internal longitudinal arch, which is the main architecture of the plantar arch, acts like a cushion which absorbs the body weight.

    The causes of a flat foot are most of the time:

    - The ligament hypermobility

    - The muscle atony

    - The overweight

    A flat foot causes tiredness while walking or while standing in upright position for a long time. It may have a resonance at the spine level. With age, we may see forming a hyper pressure on the internal side of the foot. At last, in some cases it increases the risk of forming a hallux valgus.

    For a flat foot, even 1st degree, it is important to adopt inside all your shoes, the Supports for the arch of the foot in order to give height to the internal longitudinal arch so it can play its role of shock absorber.

  • LEJARS venous insole

    LEJARS venous insole

    The plantar venous insole described by LEJARS is a network of veins in the fat tissue that lines the bottom of the foot.

    At each step, the compression of soft flesh crushes this superficial network to quickly send the blood to the deeper venous system.

    It is the first stage of the venous pump. It is essential for the good quality of the blood drainage from the periphery inward, at the risk of seeing a venous stasis.

    It slows down the blood and it dilates the blood vessels.

    The second stage, the muscles of the leg and mostly of the calf contract, which accelerates the venous return of the lower limbs to the heart.

    Our Supports for physiological arch of the foot, inside your shoes, will increase the venous pump effect and will participate in the fight against heavy legs effect.

    We also recommend you to wear heels of reasonable height around 3 cm.

  • Sagging arch of the foot

    The arch is part of the architecture of the foot which is made of 3 arches that draw a triangle on the ground.

    This bone structure, subtended by ligaments, muscles and plantar fasciitis, is able to deform itself :

    - To support the weight of the body;

    - To absorb the shocks;

    - To allow the foot to adapt to any kind of ground;

    - To participate in the phase of propulsion in walking or running.

    From these 3 arches, the most important in size and function, is the internal longitudinal arch.

    It forms an arc of a circle which starts at the calcaneus, passes by the navicular bone (the keystone) and it ends at the head of the 1st metatarsal.

    It is a stretchable arch.

    The second is the external longitudinal arch.

    It forms a curve that starts from the calcaneus, passes through the cuboid bone and ends at the head of the 5th metatarsal.

    It is a press and hold arch.

    The third and last is the transverse arch.

    It forms a small bridge that links the 1st metatarsal head to the 5thmetatarsal head.

    It is an arch of connection.

    diagram transverse arch of the foot

    We talk about sagging arch of the foot, when the curve of the internal longitudinal arch flattens, getting closer to the ground.

    It is not yet a flat foot and there is no calcaneal valgus.

    In this case, the amplitude of the shock absorber that represents the arch of the foot is diminished and its efficiency reduced.

    Tiredness will install itself while walking or while standing in upright position for a long time.

    The causes are most of the time the ligament hypermobility and or lack of muscle tone.

    Our Supports for the arch of the foot, inside your shoes, will restore in your feet the necessary curve in order to regain their function of shock absorber.
