The human kinetic chain begins with our feet. It’s incredible how many health problems can begin with the feet. Your feet are a complex system of 52 bones, 66 joints, 214 ligaments and 38 tendons and muscles, containing 25% of all the bones in your body. In your lifetime your feet will take over 100 million steps, with every step making an impact on your body.
Abnormal stresses and structural problems in your feet can cause pain throughout your entire body. Knee, Hip, Lower Back and even Neck problems can be traced to poor foot mechanics. More than 2/3 of the population have structural foot problems either due to genetics or abnormal development.
Custom made orthotics can help these problems. Many of Dr. Colhoun’s patients have been helped with orthotic use. Dr. Colhoun has been a member of the Orthotic Group for the past ten years. This Canadian company is a leader in this industry. During that time Dr. Colhoun has taken many post graduate courses to keep current with trends and research in the field of foot care.
Remember if you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your ankles, knees, hip joints, or lower back ....the direct cause may be the function of your feet.
