With our feet providing the body’s primary base of support,
their condition is vital to our whole body’s structural
Biomechanical Podiatry focuses on how the movement of the
feet affect the way the ankles, knees, hips and lower back
tissue work -
Due to the bipedal nature of humans, a considerable amount
of strain is placed on the muscles of our feet. Similar to the other
muscles of the body, tightness and restriction in the muscles of the
feet results in soreness and loss of function. At PIHC, we work towards
improving the health of the muscles in the feet, allowing them to work
more efficiently during the day and improving energy.
In the concrete world that we live in, our feet are adapting by
increasing movement to provide a greater degree of shock absorption.
This excess movement can cause a multitude of overuse injuries, such as
tendonitis, arthritis, bunions and heel spurs to name a few. Orthotics
can be used in footwear to increase the stability of the foot and
weight-bearing joints, thus reducing the risk of wear and tear injuries.
Development of children -
Natural development in children also places a
significant amount of stress on the body,
particularly with the rapid bone growth,
over-stretched muscles and increasing nerve
activity. To prevent issues in adult life, early
intervention is vital. This can be achieved
through the assessment of early walking patterns
to identify damaging walking habits and prevent
the overuse of muscles.
Our podiatrist provides consultancy and
treatment for feet problems, shoe apparel and
diagnosis of feet-related pathologies.
