The Complete Legs Feet and Ankles Chapter
- Legs, Feet and Ankles Chapter (Duration 13.13s)
Our feet and ankles do a huge amount of work. They are like springs. Arches length ways and across the fore foot act like shock absorbers. They are held and maintained by muscles and ligaments in the foot and up into the leg. A number of common situations can result in foot, ankle and leg problems.
Excessive muscle tension in the leg prevents the foot from flexing thus placing more strain on the spring dynamic of the foot and muscle attachments. This commonly presents as Achilles tendon inflammation at the back of the heel. Also shin splints where the muscle on the front of the leg (shin) is pulling excessively at its attachment to the bone.
This chapter will explain the triggers to legs, feet and ankle problems and the 3D animation will show how these function and the reasons for discomfort or pain. The stretching routines will overcome present problems and prevent future ones.
