Biomechanical abnormalities

Merrion Foot Clinic Dublin

As humans we bears our maximum weight on only two limbs, and only one limb when run or hop. The correct transfer of force to the walking surface is essential to avoid damaging joints, muscles and ligaments. The foot is maintained by passive mechanisms (Ligaments) and active mechanisms (muscles). Abnormalities such as flat feet, fallen arches, and restricted joints in the weight bearing function of the foot may therefore expose us to the development of painful conditions in our feet. Some of these conditions will include acute injuries which occur suddenly, such as ligament and tendon tears and sprains, Achilles tendonitis and Shin splints.

Chronic conditions such as various forms of arthritis where “accumulated micro trauma” has, over the years, resulted in wear and tear on a joint, may also originate from biomechanical mal-alignment of our feet and lower limbs. These restrictions can also lead to stiffness in joints within the foot, leading to extra strain and stress on the surrounding soft tissues.

  • 1. Built in heel cushion reduces pressure to the heel.
  • 2. Arch support will treat any biomechanical (walking) abnormalities such as flat feet and over pronation, therefore treating the root cause of the foot or leg pain.
  • 3. A metatarsal support (forefoot support) will provide relief and comfort to the soles of your feet.
