Biomechanical

Podiatrists use the principles of human movement and biomechanics to assess and optimise body function, specifically in relation to the foot and lower limb. At Entire Podiatry, to assist with assessing foot biomechanics we use specialised equipment to conduct biomechanical gait analyses.

In the ideal foot position, weight-bearing forces are evenly distributed, with the whole foot supported in a neutral position. However, many people have feet that either roll in (flat feet) or out (high arches). Read below to find out more about these foot types and how podiatry can help.

Flat feet (pes planus)

If you have flat feet, you may notice that the arches of your feet collapse, so that all or most of the sole of the foot makes contact with the ground when standing or walking. It can occur in one or both feet. Flat feet may be apparent in childhood, or may not develop until later in life. For more information on flat feet please click on the relevant link below.

High arched feet (pes cavus)

If you have noticed that the arch of your foot sits quite high, then you may have a ‘pes cavus’ foot type. While this is not an uncommon foot type, it can cause problems with pain, mainly due to the smaller weight-bearing surface of the foot. Podiatry for high arched feet focuses on reducing pressure by re-distributing body weight across a larger area of the foot. Click for more information about high arched feet.
