Good Foot Biomechanics Are Vital For Good Posture
The biomechanics of the feet are fundamental to good posture and healthy joints. Foot biomechanics may alter position or posture of your knees, hips, pelvis and spine. Additionally increased movement in the feet as is normal in people who over pronate leads to excessive rotation at the knee and hip joints. In fact, according to one recent study, people suffering with forefoot varus (one of the conditions leading to over pronation) were up to 5 times more likely to have had a total hip replacement. It is for these reasons that supporting your feet correctly is vital to healthy knees, hips and spine.
