Biomechanical Pathology of the Foot and Ankle in Plain English:
Each foot has 26 bones; some inherited from mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, etc. The best analogy is to compare this combination of 26 bones to the front suspension of your automobile. If the front end is “out of alignment”, normal driving will result in excessive wear of the tires. Similarly, if the combination of bones is “out of alignment,” then excessive wear and tear will slowly happen. Bunions, hammertoes, heel spurs, and neuromas, are all examples of such wear and tear. Other times, new tires are required along with re-alignment. In this case surgical reconstruction is followed by custom orthotic therapy.
