Foot function can be a sophisticated activity because there are lots of bones in the feet and muscles manipulating the feet that will be difficult to understand. There are numerous concepts on foot biomechanics that even more confuse this. Sometimes it will get so complex it is hard to understand. PodChatLive is a weekly live talk for the regular education of Podiatry practitioners and others who may be interested. You can find several livstreams of PodChatLive about the main topics the several biomechanical ideas and the ways to understand them. The live goes out live on Facebook and after that is later submitted to YouTube. Every livestream episode has a different person or range of experts to go over an alternative area each time and a few shows were dedicated to biomechanics. Queries are replied to live by the hosts and also experts while in the live on Facebook. Also there is a audio form of each show on iTunes and Spotify and the other usual podcast sites. They have developed a large following that keeps increasing. PodChatLive is certainly one of the ways by which podiatrists may get free continuing education credits on biomechanics.
One of the experts that the hosts had on to talk about the sagittal plane theory of foot biomechanics was Howard Dananberg. Howard is generally understood as the podiatrist which began the idea of this idea of foot function. He talked about what it was that set him off down that path of his solution to the understanding foot function. Howard mentioned just what it was that initially starting his thinking about sagittal plane mechanics with the framework of ‘functional hallux limitus’ along with what that is and just how that inspired his practice over the last three decades. Howard regularly instructs and lectures on the concept of sagittal place function in many different countries since his retiring from clinical practice.
