The foot acts both as an adjustable adapter and as a rigid lever. This occurs from the point of heel strike (deceleration) through the adjustment of mid stance to a toe off position (acceleration). It also is used for all flexsion, extension, adduction, (in) abduction (out) and the triplaner motions (rotation) ot the sub talor joint. These movements all combine to allow all the full ranges of motion that we daily take for granted from this incredibly complex structure.
The lower limb (below the knee) apart from being the main extensor, flexor and aid to all main foot movements plays a vital part of the bodies venous pump system. The heart is a powerful muscle that pumps blood to all to extremities of the body the foot being the furthest and most importantly the lowest. There is no venous heart to pump the blood back to remove toxins, CO2 and return blood to the heart and lungs for reoxygenation.
This action is therefore performed mainly by the calf mucseles (the triseptssurea group) gastrocnemius and soleus. Therfore through their usage (exercise) they enable aid the against the resistance of the factors of distance and gravity to return of blood to the heart. It is easy to see then the benefits of Reformer Pilates (Resistance based training, includes feet) to the upkeep and maintenance of these structure. It will increase blood supply to and from the foot. resupplying O2, energy and nutrients to the lower limb and foot and removing toxins and CO2 from them.
The benefits of The Lower Back Fix program is in my opinion, even better than Pilates. Same as Pilates theory, we start the work at the Pelvis to ensure there is full ROM (Range of Movement), so that there is less tension on the frontal plain of the body, enabling you to get better heel connection. In my opinion, this training is even safer for anyone to undergo without supervision as you are going to feel the work. Disassociation/ isolation, actually takes a lot more Mindfulness, Breath & Patience practise before trying to execute the action with grace & precision. As the quality assured, direct, short videos & equipment give you precise teachings you well feel it working well if you follow the provides to the function of the structure’s of the lower limb and foot are multifarius especially through stretching. This is especially noticeable on the muscle layers of the sole of the foot which acts as a strap holding together the many bones together thus preventing any collapse of the arches of the foot. Overall function of adaptability , articulation and complete range of motion are vastly improved.
Alongside the great advantages of an improvement in blood circulation which greatly assists with breathing, one can see the many advantages that can be achieved with M.O.T.
