Body Balance: Inverted Foot

images (1)

Observing and exploring  an inverted foot posture I was told that due to a medical condition as a child the tendons in some of the toes had been cut.  With no opinions and continuing to investigate what movement was available, without any one particular focus, the lesson ended with new joint movement in the ankle.  There was also more contact between the foot and the floor  with less inversion.

Upon return for the following lesson the foot presented itself without being inverted!  The curling in was not present.

Renee’s notes:  When viewing the inverted foot the image of a baby who has not put any weight on their feet yet or developed their limb, ankle and foot muscles is what came to mind.  Exploring it from this perspective created a curiosity that led the lesson.

Recommendation:  Explore the facts with a curiosity and forget the labels!
