First of all, what do Foot Biomechanics & Graceful Ageing have in common?

Foot biomechanics describes how the foot and leg work, while graceful ageing is a multifaceted art form.

 

Because biomechanically correct feet absorb and dissipate shock best, any desire to age gracefully must address how stress travels throughout the entire body AND that starts at the ground.

Constant wear-and-tear stress into the ankle, knee, hip, and spine.

Bad foot biomechanics contribute toward the development of Osteoarthritis.

Three Examples of Wear & Tear Osteoarthritis:

Left hip is fine, right hip needs a replacement.

Right foot arch is collapsed while the left foot remains normal.

Left knee has excellent joint space, right knee partially degenerated. 

Here’s the Point…

Both sides of the body… SAME AGE.

Uncontrolled shock is damaging.

Bad foot biomechanics is damaging!!!

Wear-and-tear ages the body unnaturally fast.

-Graceful Ageing Requires Good Foot Biomechanics-

On the one hand, good biomechanics represents the best functional relationship possible between each foot and leg.

On the other hand, Bad biomechanics is an uncooperative relationship.

As a result, so begins the degenerative process of wear-and-tear.

Not convinced?!

Seems silly, but offers a quick lesson in bad biomechanics.

Stop the wear-and-tear with good foot biomechanics!
