Most of us plod around on our feet all day without giving them much thought. However, the foot is one of the most complex and important mechanisms in the human body. The structure of your foot allows for proper ankle alignment. If the ankles are out of alignment, the knees don’t stand a chance… If the knees are off, the hips are off, and upwards it goes, all the way to the neck and shoulders.
At Highlands Pilates, we understand your body’s relationship to gravity, and thus how very important your feet really are. We will help you to build your posture from the ground up!
Your foot is made up of 42 muscles, 26 bones, 33 joints, and at least 50 ligaments and tendons. Just like every other part of your body, by releasing tight muscles and strengthening weaker ones, you have a tremendous amount of control over the healthy function of your feet. Combining in-session apparatus work with homework exercises, you can reshape your arches and feel the change reverberate into your knees, hips, and even your spine.
Our instructors have helped their clients find relief from many foot conditions as well, including bunions, Morton’s Neuromas, plantar fasciitis, hammertoes and claw toes.
