The human foot is an amazing thing and something we rely so much on – It shouldn’t be taken for granted. This is a great video by the BBC that demonstrates and discusses our amazing natural foot mechanics of our feet and how it works to keep us moving efficiently.
There is some dissection in the video so be warned if you are a bit squeamish, but it is well worth it!
There is also a great explanation in here of the plantar fascia and windlass mechanism and how this natural spring mechanism helps us move – you will be surprised how complicated our feet are!
What do you think about our foot mechanics? Pretty bloody lucky aren’t we.
