What Is Biomechanics?

A Biomechanical Examination Involves Assessment Of The Structure, Alignment And Function Of The Feet And Legs.

In Podiatry Biomechanics refers to the way the bones, muscles and joints of your feet and lower limbs interact and move. They will look specifically at Pronation – how impact is absorbed and Supination – how you are propelled.

Pronation – Absorption

The best way to describe this is the movement of your foot as your weight is transferred from the outside of your heel to the inside of your forefoot.  This helps your foot adapt to different surface and cope with the impact when you put your foot down. Pronation is a natural movement when you are walking or running, but too much or too little can cause problems leading to chronic pain.

Supination – Propulsion

Supination happens after your foot has absorbed the impact of putting your foot down. The front of your foot pushes forward to lift your heel and move your weight forward to the front of your foot and your toes. This is what propels you in the direction you want to travel, like pronation it is a natural movement but too much or too little can cause problems.
