When you run your feet experience 6 times
the normal force they feel when you walk. It is no wonder
that many problems occur when people start becoming serious
about sport or even dance and aerobics.
Podiatrists assess foot structure. If your
foot bones are not in the right position many symptoms can
arise. These can include:
- Toe joint and arch pain
- Pulled muscles
- Shin splints
- Heel pain
- Knee and hip pain
- Lower back pain
Treatment is aimed at getting joints to
move about their normal positions.
This can be achieved by an orthotic (specialised
insole) device made from a plaster cast of the individuals
Gait and posture is assessed by using biomechnical
analysis so that the correct orthotic may be prescribed for
the appropriate condition, foot type, and foot wear.
A walkway and treadmill maybe used as well
