How do I fix my flat feet? This is a question I get all the time in person and on social media. Addressing something like a flat foot can be easy or difficult, depending on how many distortions a person has in their body. Most of the time, a flat foot is an issue with people who have a completely disconnective upper body from their lower body. That’s what I am going to focus on today. The connection we are going to form here will involve the Posterior Oblique Sling
Although this connection of muscles does not appear to have relation to a flat foot, it’s actually very important for it. If you follow the Anatomy Trains system, that the foot connects to glutes and lats via myofascial force transmission (muscle to muscle connections. Of course the foot is has tons of ligaments that do not connect muscles to muscles, but the tension on those ligaments is completely dependent on balance within muscles like your Tibialis Anterior, Gastrocnemius, Soleus, Flexor Hallucis, Flexor Digitorum Longus, Tibialis Posterior. Those muscles greatly depend on larger muscles like the Glutes and Lats. Point being that it’s all connected.
In this video I showcase a new approach to connecting your movements that has never been seen before.
