At the Movement Assessment Technologies we believe the foot is the switch that turns the rest of the body on in upright function. Without great feet, it can make it difficult for anything else up the chain to do its job as effectively.
For most of us though we cover our feet for the majority of the day in sensory inhibitors called shoes. Combined with hip inhibitors called chairs it may be an environment that can lead to an array of dysfunctions and pathologies.
Make sure you consider the feet when you are dealing with any lower limb or spinal pain patient or client.
If you would like to learn how to assess for healthy, fully functioning feet make sure you check out the Movement Assessment Technologies Functional Assessment course:
