Flat feet, also known as fallen arches, occur when the arch of the foot collapses, causing the foot to flatten out. While some people with flat feet may not experience any pain or discomfort, but most people experience pain, swelling, or fatigue in the feet, legs, or lower back.
Kau's Method Gait Re-Training, recover foot arch with skilled muscle-controlled walking without the help of a foot orthosis (a.k.a insole) or invasive surgery.
These are the steps to restore a flat foot:
Stage 1: Sitting Mode (Static Condition)
To develop an awareness of the arch muscles and learn to lift the arch without the influence of gravity.
Stage 2: Standing Mode (Static Condition + Gravity Influence)
To activate and strengthen the arch muscle while bearing the weight of gravity.
Stage 3: Walking Mode (Dynamic Condition + Gravity Influence + Slow Speed)
To walk with arch muscles under body weight-bearing conditions.
Stage 4: Squatting Mode (Multi-Joints Dynamic Condition + Gravity Influence + Slow Speed)
To further strengthen arch muscles through dynamic squatting training.
Stage 5: Jmping Mode (Multi-Joints Dynamic Condition + Gravity Influence + Fast Speed)
To solidify arch muscle memory, ensure the arch muscle operates subconsciously during daily walking.
Stage 6: Running Mode (Multi-Joints Dynamic Condition + Gravity Influence + Fast Speed)
To be able to run with the arched foot and also to solidify arch muscle memory.
Each training session lasts approximately 30 minutes, with sessions scheduled once every week or every two weeks.
The whole restoration takes about 1-2 months, depending on the severity and age.
