The old saying, when your feet hurt you hurt all over, couldn’t` be more true. The body is an amazing piece of equipment, it always tries its best to fix itself. In the foot it usually done so, by compensating how it moves without you consciously realizing it. That is why it not unusual to start with pain at one spot and develop more compounding pain all over.
- Foot mechanics, which is how your foot and legs move, is an inherited trait.
- If the foot is not perfectly balanced and structured, over time the bones in the foot change their position and alignment, thus creating deformities. The ill fitting shoes worn, will ultimately make you very aware of those deformities.
- It is our job to act like a detective and ask a series of questions to figure out when, where and how a problem started. Once we decipher the problem, we will try our best to explain it to you, so you can avoid repeating the injury again or further worsening the problem. This understanding usually helps instill confidence. When you understand it and it makes sense, you are more enamored to follow the program and increase our success rate.
