Biomechanics is a term coined in the early 70s when scientists started applying engineering principles to the human body. It is the study of the mechanical laws relating to the movement and structure of living organisms. These techniques are used to identify and help eliminate the root cause of pain throughout the body.
The orthotics are wonderful! They have straightened out my posture. I walk much more erect now, and I have far less back pain. My shoulders do not slouch anymore, and my feet do not get as tired when I stand 8-10 hours at work. – Oriana Peay, Winston-Salem, NC
Your Feet Are The Foundation of Your Whole Body.
The human foot is a strong and complex mechanical structure made up of 26 bones and 33 joints. Over 200,000 nerve endings. More than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Your center of gravity needs to be on the strongest part of the foot – the transverse arch. If your center of gravity is not on the strongest part of your foot, it can cause misalignment and imbalance problems in your feet which can lead to chronic problems throughout your body.
