Foot Anatomy

From our Biomechanics series so far…
We’ve had a look at the Running Gait Cycle
And then we considered Pronation and Supination in the Gait Cycle

Now is an opportune time to look at the anatomy of the foot, its bones, ligaments and muscles.

By looking at the design of the foot, we can better understand how the foot:

  • moves the way it does, through both pronation and supination
  • dissipates forces through pronation
  • adjusts to varied terrain
  • acts as a lever through supination

And will prepare us for more advanced bio-mechanical mechanisms explored in future articles.

So let’s listen to orthopedic surgeon Randale Sechrest.
