Short Foot by Janda
Short Foot / Propriozeptive Sensorimotor Facilitation by Janda
This technique has been developed by the Czech neurologist Vladimir Janda (1928 - 2003)
The short foot is a special physiotherapy exercise which reactivates reflexively driven, weakened or inhibited muscle groups by intensifying and optimizing one’s soles contact to the floor.
By regularly repeating the exercise and integrate it into the daily life physiologically advantageous patterns of movement can be relearned in order to avoid bad posture.
