One quarter of all your bones are in your feet! Biomechanics describes the study of the way that the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, fasciae, muscles, nerves and blood vessels work together (in the foot and lower limbs) to perform movement, like walking, running, kicking or jumping. Our bodies need to absorb and release shock with every step, and this is amplified when we run or jump. Lower limbs with poor biomechanics often develop injuries and pain, resulting in reduced efficiency and athletic performance.
Our Podiatrists can assess the mechanical function of your feet and lower limbs, and work with you to improve efficiency, minimise pain and maximise performance.
