Arch Height. Most footwear companies are talking about it, every shoe store or doctor’s office tries to fix it. So we’re here to tackle some big questions today. What does a healthy arch look like? More so, is arch height even important?
There are two competing logics at the heart of this debate. One holds that when the foot is in pain, we must alleviate that pain with support: heel cups for heel pain, arch support for collapsed arches and extra padding for a sore foot.
Our feet are the powerhouse of our movement, and yet, they are one of the most neglected parts of the body when it comes to care. Incorporating a routine that includes exercises to strengthen the feet will result in increased athletic performance and reduced injuries.
