How PigaONE© helps with injuries
It’s easy to forget that each of our feet is composed of 28 bones, 38 muscles, 35 articulations and 56 ligaments! The feet are our most strategic elements to biomechanics. They allow us to stand, to spin, and to maintain our balance. Without strong healthy feet, many of our daily activities can become difficult, if not impossible.
The feet’s mechanics can falter, often because they are being underused, stressed by ill-fitting shoes, injuries or excess weight. Throughout our lifetime, nearly 8 out of 10 people will experience foot pain. In many cases, this will impact someone’s ability to walk, participate in sports, or even remain standing.
If you're unable to perform the majority of your daily activities barefoot, then you may have a foot and ankle deficiency. You may also have pain elsewhere in your body. Improving foot and ankle function can do wonders for movement mechanics, particularly in the hips and lower torso. The feet and ankles are best trained with a variety of exercises that focus on stabilization and balance – and PigaONE© can help in that journey.
PigaONE© can help you avoid compensation which leads to pain or trauma when the body creates an imbalance in the upper body. To properly rehabilitate the foot, and relieve pain throughout the whole body, PigaONE© can be combined to a re-education program following injury or trauma (once prescribed by a physician). In a combination program like that, you will experience less fatigue, decreased tension in the foot, decreased demand of energy to perform movement and maintain your balance. Plus, you will recreate proper foot posture.
