Run - Walk - PLAY
with a big smile is the name of the game!
Run - Walk - PLAY with a big smile is the name of the game! That's exactly what Kyra can do now! Thanks to a correct diagnosis of her Tibialis posterior pain.
Did you know that there is a really powerful muscle that runs down the inside of your lower leg called the Tibialis posterior! The muscle helps control your arch, and it helps roll your foot back out, Giving you an arch.
A Tibialis posterior can become really sore and tired if it becomes overused. Often the pain is in your arch or just under your inside ankle bone. People with this problem who walk a little more than usual, spend longer on their feet, perhaps play sport may find that this area becomes very sore.
This is what lead Kyra's parents to bring her along to visit us. She had six months with pain in her feet, legs ankles. Her parents had tried several things before visiting us. A month into care with awesome orthotics and Kyra has NO more PAIN in her feet.
Her orthotics work by balancing her foot posture so that her arch is the right spot at the right time when walking + running. The Tibialis muscle then doesn't need to do as much work!
She is LOVING HER new orthotics and comfortable in them. She happily runs walks and plays sport in them.
