Foot biomechanics is a complex activity because there are so many bones in the feet in addition to muscles moving the feet that will be difficult to grasp. There are several concepts on foot function which further more confuse it. Sometimes it will become so sophisticated it really is difficult to understand. PodChatLive is a monthly live discussion for the continuing learning of Podiatrists and others who may be interested. There have been several shows of PodChatLive devoted to the subject of the different biomechanical ideas and the ways to have an understanding of them. The livestream is broadcast live on Facebook and then is later on transferred to YouTube. Every live show has a different expert or number of guests to talk about an alternative topic each time and a few shows are already dedicated to biomechanics. Queries are usually responded to live by the hosts as well as experts during the live on Facebook. Additionally there is a PodCast version of each live on iTunes and Spotify and the other typical podcast sites. They've developed a large following that is still growing. PodChatLive is recognized as a good way by which podiatry practitioners may get free continuing education hours on biomechanics.
One of the experts that they had on to discuss the sagittal plane theory of foot biomechanics was Howard Dananberg. He is generally understood as the podiatric physician which begun this idea of this hypothesis of foot perform. He described what it really was that set him off along that pathway of his approach to the understanding foot dysfunction. Howard outlined just what it was which first started his contemplating sagittal plane biomechanics with the perspective of ‘functional hallux limitus’ and what that is and exactly how which determined his practice during the last 30 years. Howard routinely instructs and lectures about the notion of sagittal place dysfunction in many different places since his retiring from clinical practice.
