Foot pain, joint and muscle pain can be traced to over-pronation and supination. Learn how to relieve body pain with ProKinetics® Insoles instead of big bulky arch supports.
Better Ways to Sit, Stand, Move and Present Yourself to the World
"Stand up straight!" "Pull your shoulders back!" As children, we were told to have good posture. Yet we were seldom taught effective ways to accomplish this. Indeed, we were often not even told just what “good posture” is.
http://www.mariantoniettafusco.com/engl/ Dr. Maria Antonietta Fusco has devoted considerable time to the study of posture and musculoskeletal illness. She emphasizes the importance of a dynamic understanding of the feet as the foundation for postural correction and stability. She has identified numerous proprioceptive stimulus points on the feet which activates various muscles controlling the feet including the longitudinal arch. ProKinetics® Insoles focus on the first metatarsal and the big toe which is the most significant elements under muscular control influencing pronation and therefore the posture of a typical person with Morton's Foot Syndrome and an elevated first metatarsal.
