In medicine, the terminology is accepted; flat feet is a decrease in the height of the internal arch, when the balance of forces is disturbed in the system of paired muscles. Specialists lift and hold the arch with hard insoles, not realizing that this way the muscles do not contract at all. Reduction of the vault is always a loss or change in its functionality. The function of the muscles of the arch is not only to compensate for the load, but also to raise lymph and blood to the organs. Already between these two functions, a certain contradiction is seen: to keep the load and pump blood. That is why a misunderstanding of the physiology of the body is seen in the actions of orthopedists. The body, being in a stable vertical position, constantly strives to fall, its body's BCT constantly fluctuates about the vertical axis, which causes the muscles to contract, to support the metabolic processes of the body's cells. It follows that it is impossible to raise and maintain the inner vault. The internal arch has a large clearance, which can be compared to the braking distance of a car, which dampens the speed of the transfer of the leg to zero, before stepping from the other limb. The beginning, the command to turn the arch is the appearance of a support under the cuboid bone of the external supporting arch. Thus, an overturning moment of forces, incomprehensible to orthopedists, arises. Another reason for the overturning of the inner arch is the difference in leg lengths that each person has. The calcaneus of a long limb is always inclined to the inside, from which the internal arch, which rests on the tubercle of the subtalar joint, overturns and turns inward.
