Heel and Lower Leg Pain

Biomechanics, Aches and pain

The structure and function of lower limbs are incredibly complex. The foot alone is composed of thirty three bones, thirty joints and more than a hundred muscles tendons and ligaments. These are arranged in an intricate manner that makes it strong, stable and yet flexible enough for movement.

Lower Leg Pain Auckland

Foot is subject to pressure and loading forces from the ground while walking. Upon running or jumping this pressure increases and often feet are exposed to pressure as high as 20 times the body weight.  This excessive pressure in combination with alignment issues, inappropriate footwear can lead to ligament, muscle or bone damage and can result in chronic pain in feet and lower leg.
