Hi, my name is David Nicholls and I am a Podiatrist specialising in Biomechanics and Nail Surgery.

Biomechanics is the study of the human gait and how it impacts on your musculoskeletal structure. As your foot is the first and last point of contact with the ground, so, has a direct impact on the rest of the body. Your foot during the walking or running gait has to perform 3 main tasks :-
1.) Shock absorb on impact with the ground.
2.) Propulsion, or push the body forward.
3.) Swing to allow the none loading foot to clear the ground.
Any of these tasks performed inadequately or overly can lead to foot, leg, knee, hip and back ache.
Your foot is your foundation, it needs to be stable to support the rest of your body, therefore it is so important to check.
