More importantly, if you have a foot & ankle issue - in particular the arch of your foot, we're going to teach you how to manage it with exercise! There are dozens of bones, muscles, ligaments, and 3 main arches that are a part of the foot & ankle. The coolest part is that they all work together to facilitate 3-dimensional coupled motions. This motion is what allows the bones to move amongst each other in different directions, but together as a unit.  The way the foot & ankle moves in the air is different than the way it moves on the ground. In the air, just the foot & ankle are moving, but on the ground, the rest of the body is stacked on top of the foot & ankle. This really influences arch position. Be sure to watch the entire video as we review 4 different exercises designed to teach you foot arch control in addition to how the strengthen the muscles of your foot & ankle that support your arch. Not only will you feel your foot & ankle as well as your calf working, but you'll feel your entire leg working in order to better control your foot arch position!
