Podiatric biomechanics has been taken to advanced levels in recent years with entire university degrees being dedicated to the understanding of it. It involves the assessment of the structure, alignment and function of the feet and legs.

The average person takes between 5,000 to 18,000 steps per day. This low-grade but repetitive motion can place stress on the foot, legs, pelvis and spine predisposing to pain and discomfort. If you have a low-arched (pronated) or high arched (supinated) foot then you may be more predisposed to problems. However, muscle inflexibility and weakness, footwear and activity levels can all affect function.

A detailed assessment of underlying structure and function can help to identify factors that may be causing or contributing to injury or lack of performance. The use of shoe insoles can help to control the way in which the foot and therefore legs function and thus reduce risk factors associated with injury.
