The foot is made up of 26 bones. The foot is crucial to how the rest of your body is able to position itself. The foot is your body’s interface with the ground you walk on. Apart from soft pedestrian surfaces such as sand or mud, the ground does not give, so your foot needs to have the ability to control and adapt to surfaces without stress transferring to the rest of the body.
Too much pronation in one foot can cause a rotation in your pelvis and create problems along your spine and back.
Most times the foot can be aligned with physiotherapy and proper biomechanics restored. In some cases you may also need orthotics. We can fit orthotics for mild cases or refer you to a specialist podiatrist.
