Walking

teal tennis shoe bottomsWalking is a complex activity that involves a kinetic chain of movements, starting from your feet and moving up through the ankles, knees, hips, and thoracic region.

Every step you take sends force through this chain, and any blockages or improper movement patterns can disrupt the system and cause pain or discomfort. This is where chiropractic care comes in.

Chiropractors like Dr Pieter understand the intricate mechanics of the body and how each part affects the others. They know that if something is out of alignment, it can throw off your entire gait. They look at every aspect of your movement, from the way your foot hits the ground to the mobility of your pelvis and thoracic region.

Addressing Muscle Function & Connective Tissue

Chiropractic care doesn’t stop at joint mobility. It also delves into muscle function. Are there areas that are too tight or too weak? Are your glutes firing as they should be, or is another muscle group dominating? All these factors can affect your walking pattern and lead to pain or injury over time.

Your connective tissue plays a crucial role. If it’s too tight, it can restrict movement and result in pain. If it’s too loose, it can lead to instability. Dr Pieter can assess the state of your connective tissue and make recommendations for improvement.

The Role of Footwear in Walking

Even the quality of your shoes can impact your walking. Poorly fitting or worn-out shoes can change the way your foot strikes the ground, which can lead to issues higher up in the kinetic chain. Your chiropractor can provide advice on the best types of shoes for your specific needs.
