Planovalgus deformity in children

The parents of the children diagnosed with planovalgus deformity contact Dr. Nikolai Nikonov and ask for help. Problems are noticeable in children of different ages. During examination, Nikolai Nikonov first focuses on the muscle mobility of the child's foot. The doctor checks whether the patient can take the fetal posture or the frog posture. In no other related problems have been identified during the examination, these are physiological forms of flat foot:

Mobile flat foot this is a physiologically normal state.

This diagnosis does not cause any pathological changes in the future. It can be said that the foot becomes a normal physiological form in the process of child growth.

The examination of a child with planovalgus deformity is more complex. A patient with this diagnosis has difficulties and will not fully take a frog posture (if at all). There's no problem with the fetal position. In this diagnosis, the foot movement is limited.

Planovalgus deformity is the pathological condition of the foot (ugliness).

Planovalgus deformity

Planovalgus deformity limits mobility in the foot muscles. According to pediatric orthopaedists, mobility is restricted in the joints of the foot. However, they still agree with my point of view. Although, they add that the limitation of the joint mobility is caused by a dysfunction of the tibialis anterior muscle and the long fibular muscle, not the joint.

My point of view. The pathological condition of the child's foot is directly related to the limitation of the muscle movement of the foot, lower leg, thighs, buttocks, and back. Its main cause is protein swelling of the muscle cells.

The scientists of the University of Cambridge found the following in the pedobarographic study:

In planovalgus deformity, the load on the middle part of the foot is significantly increased from 4% to 30%.

Orthopedists generally consider that adjusting of the heel valgus position and increasing the load of the plantar surface of the foot in the standing position are achieved by placing an insole under the inside of the heel. They think that under such conditions, a normal longitudinal arch of foot should be restored and the pressure on the middle part of food should reduce.

I believe that whn wearing of orthopedic insoles or shoes, pressure on the middle part of the child's foot is increasing rather than decreasing as they claim. All because the tibialis anterior muscle and the long fibular muscle, suffering from severe protein swelling, cannot stretch and not to press on the foot from the top. It turns out that the proposed insoles are putting pressure on the bottom of the foot and the shin muscles are press on the the foot from the top. As a result, the pressure increases from both the top and bottom.



The pressure on the shin muscles is increased from the bottom because of insoles. The swollen shin muscles press on the hip muscles, which exert pressure on the muscles of the buttocks and the back muscles. It turns out that:

Orthopedic insoles increase problems in all muscles, including the foot muscles. Insoles only create the appearance that the child has no planovalgus deformity.

leg muscles

The shin muscles, which have protein swelling, cannot stretch completely.

Pediatric orthopedists are aware that surgical treatment of flat foot in childhood is ineffective. But yet they developed many tendon-muscle plastic operations to threat this condition. Surgical treatment, which forms the arch of foot by blocking subtalar joint movement results in its secondary changes. Only later orthopedists realized that the secondary changes are so terrible that they decided to abandon this kind of treatment.

The emendic procedures developed by me eliminate protein swelling from the muscles of the back, lumbar area, buttocks, thighs, shin, and foot. As a result, conditions for the restoration of muscles and the normal formation of the child's foot are created.


My recovery method is based on 30 years of experience and an array of knowledge accumulated during that time. You can remove the deformation only if you know the cause of planovalgus deformity. Treatment, in this case, is effective. I do not work with the consequences, the emendic massage is designed to eliminate protein swelling. The latter is precisely the cause of this deformity.

Pediatric orthopedists believe that planovalgus deformity is a consequence of the improper intrauterine foot position.

I believe that planovalgus deformity is the result of protein swelling of the muscles of the back, buttocks, legs, and foot. 50% of all newborn children have the diagnosis described in this article. Planovalgus deformity is not accompanied by changes in the bones and joints of the foot. Therefore, no test prescribed by doctors will show abnormalities in the child's joints. If you look at the shoes, the diagnosis will be confirmed:
