3 Arches of the Foot

As promised here’s some info about the three arches of your foot.

Most of this information is taken from content that can be found at happyfeet.com/3-arches.aspx.

The bones provide the framework around which the ligaments, tendons and muscles form the supporting structure of the foot.

Medial Arch

The largest longitudinal arch is the Medial Arch. It is located on the inside of the foot and is typically described as “Flat”, “Normal” or “High” (see last week’s blog for more information).

Lateral Arch

The Lateral Arch is the smaller of the two longitudinal arches and is found on the outside part of the sole.

Metatarsal Arch

The Metatarsal Arch is the primary transverse arch. This arch created by the Metatarsals is not as obvious as the large Medial Arch, but without support it too can cause painful injuries such as Metatarsalgia.

Footwear with good arch support, especially in the Medial and Metatarsal Arches, can help people suffering from Plantar Fasciitis or Metatarsalgia.

Wearing supportive footwear can also help prevent foot ailments. Finn Comfort and Birkenstock footbeds provide excellent Medial, Lateral and Metatarsal Arch support.

Supportive footwear like Birkenstock or Finn Comfort also have desired features like a wide toebox and a broad, stable sole which can help people suffering from Morton’s Neuroma, Hammer Toes, or Bunions.
