Archies thongs now at Malvern Physio

The foot typically has 28 bones, 33 joints and more than one hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments, making it a very complex moving structure. It also has two main arches through it, along the length and width of the foot. All these structures allow for many functions, but two are particularly important: shock absorption on impact, and creating a rigid structure for the calf to pull on to generate propulsion.  Pronation, or the collapsing of the arch of the foot is part of this shock absorbing process..
