Ten (or so) Fun and Nerdy facts about the Foot & Ankle
“When the Foot hits the ground everything changes.”
– Dr. Gary Gray
- The Foot has 26 bones….that is a lot of bones and joints!! And they all have a role in everything we do on our feet!
- The Ankle has 12 strong muscles supporting it plus all the ligaments and tendons so considering its complexity, mobility and stability of your Ankle is important in your training.
- The joint between the ankle and the heel is called the subtalar joint and it is a torque converter. It converts rotation of the leg (tranverse plane) into a side to side movement (frontal plane) of the heel and vice versa.
- The anatomical name for the Big Toe is THE GREAT TOE… so it’s pretty special… well, at least it thinks so.
- THE GREAT TOE requires 60 to 65 degrees of flexion for normal gait. That means at least 80-90 degrees for a stretch in flexion.
- First the Foot and Ankle is a shock absorber when the foot hits the ground. Then the Foot and Ankle needs to be able to reverse this motion to become stabile and a strong platform to propel off of.
- SOOOOOOOO what you put on your feet when you are moving about really matters! Flip Flops maybe not so good …just saying!
- Why did one foot not get along with the other foot? Because both of them can not be right😂.
