For the life of me I can’t get my right navicular bone to drop. I literally came across it because I was explaining to people how to create an arch, but my right foot just simply always has one. It was then I noticed my left foot caves in and I have to be mindful of creating that arch. I know the treatments for the feet, but I was just wondering what upstream symptoms come from this?
You don’t want your navicular bone to drop.
Episode 07: Bro, Your Navicular Bone Dropped
Episode 349: What If We Just Used a Joint Stability/Function Approach?
I know not to let the foot drop in its just odd that my left is the one that drops in. My right hip is way more tight then my left. My left external rotation is worse then my right but it’s nothing serious. External, internal, and flexion seem pretty good compared to my right.
Gluts activation is something I don’t understand too much. I think It’s because it’s not really discussed too much. But I can control my gluteus and even flex each side separately.
ha yeah maybe i shouldn’t say glute activation because it implies activation/control of an individual muscle which isn’t as helpful as dealing with movement which is more than just the glute.
I think my left glute is lacking behind my right glute.
When you descend into squat, the glutes are mostly trying to lengthen so flexing them isn’t going to work. however, it’s the glute medius that helps drive the knee outward and upper leg into external rotation. this is the glute you want to activate which also helps keep your navicular bone off the ground.
did you mean my query about the knee? yes if you have an arch, then the knee will most likely be facing outward. if the knee starts rotating inward, then the nav bone will most likely drop….
