It is advisable that people, who regularly practice a sport, undergo a biomechanical study to check the likelihood of improving foot support. This has a direct impact on improving athletic performance and preventing injuries.
Most of the ankle, knee, hip and spine injuries are directly related to how people tread.
Your feet support the full weight of your body and any change in them, or an insufficient shock absorption by the sole of the foot, affects the entire kinetic chain and the rest of your joints.
Our aim in the sports environment is to:
- Evaluate the morphology and functionality of the sportsperson’s foot.
- Examine the foot as an integral part of the kinematic chain, from a biomechanical point of view.
- Prevent the appearance of injuries derived from the structural changes in the inferior extremity.
- Plan the care, from apodiatric point of view,at the pre-competitive, competitive and post-competitive levels.
- Treat, from an orthotic point of view, the deficiencies and changes that are common to the lower extremities.
- Evaluatesports shoes so as to optimise them.
- Treat the injuries and pathologies common to feet.
- Determine the specifics of the movement, evaluatetheir effectiveness and economy and diagnose and implement possible improvements to that sports action.
