Foot (Left)

Body Part Overview

What:The foot is home to four unique layers of muscles that work together to provide shock absorption when our foot hits the ground and then propulsion when we push off of it. If there is any disruption in this process (due to tight muscles or joints for example), it is very common for the small structures to break down under the load of the body. Some examples of injuries that can occur include plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, sesamoiditis, neuromas and bunions.
