Your foot is an extraordinarily complex mechanism. There are 26 bones in each foot, held in position by ligaments, tendons and muscles. These are all arranged to create several dynamic arches which support the weight of your body, absorb shock forces and provide leverage while walking. These arches yield when the foot hits the ground. Various joints shift and rotate in a carefully timed sequence. As you begin another step, the arches spring back and the joints lock to help push your foot off the ground. We make these incredibly complex movements a staggering 4,000 to 10,000 times a day over an almost unlimited variety of surfaces and terrains, each demanding a different series of foot motions. The total force on the feet accumulated every day is well over one million pounds for the average adult! Your feet act as an amazingly versatile and complex set of shock absorbers which protect your body with every step.

It is therefore vitally important that if you are experiencing any of these symptoms then a full assessment is carried out.

The analysis of the results used in combination with the full assessment of the structures in the leg and foot will lead to the formulation of an individual treatment plan for the patient.

"Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Opera. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos"By: portes de garage alu
