Biomechanics is the science of movement of a living body, including how muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments work together to produce movement.
Biomechanics of the feet can result in changes to ankle, leg, knee, hip and lower back. The body has kinetic chains from the feet to the head and vice versa.
As you can imagine – having weakened or tight muscles, poor technique, excessive force to bone or soft tissue structures can cause pain if the tissue cannot tolerate the load – resulting in tears, inflammation, swelling, breaks, fractures etc.
