The human foot is designed for weight-bearing and force distribution and is a functional masterpiece for mobility and gait. However, it can also be the root cause of pain and dysfunction. This course, the third of nine in the Gait Analysis and Training Programme, continues to explore important gait deviations, this time travelling down the lower extremities to focus on the lower leg and feet. This course will compare the expected movement patterns of the lower leg and foot with deviant patterns, highlight gait features of the deviant movement, and describe commonly associated pain syndromes.
