At Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates, we can expertly determine the source of problems related to biomechanics and provide the necessary treatment to provide you or a loved one the relief you need.
What are Biomechanics?
In a nutshell, biomechanics is the study of structure and motion in living creatures.
You may have heard your body described as similar to a car before, and that really isn’t too far off. Although getting around in both a car and on foot can feel quite simple, the reality is that there are complex structures in place to make that possible.
One foot alone contains 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 soft tissues – including muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Proper, comfortable motion means many of those parts have to work together not only with each other, but the structures of our legs and other parts higher up as well.
And just like with a car, trouble can begin when something in the system is out of form.
How Can We Help Your Feet Feel Better?
Aches, strains, and other conditions that result from biomechanical problems are never something that anyone should “just learn to deal with.” Ignoring the symptoms can very well lead to them becoming worse over time.
The sooner you come to see us about any foot or ankle trouble you are experiencing, the sooner we can help you get to the root of the problem and find an effective solution. Whether custom orthotics, laser therapy, or simply rest and medication is best for your individual needs, we always want to make sure you receive it!
