There are lots of small muscles under the plantar surface of the feet and in all probability due to their dimension they haven't gained much value. It has begun to change lately as research has begun to demonstrate just how significant those muscles will be to natural function and biomechanics of the foot. They seem to play a critical function in the way you balance and problems with these little muscles is most likely a factor in most of the digital deformities. This issue was discussed within a recently available episode of the podiatry chat show that goes out live on Facebook known as PodChatLive. In this PodChatLive the hosts chatted with Luke Kelly who has published frequently in the area of plantar intrinsic foot muscle function and exactly how significant they are. He talked about the spring-like function of the human feet while walking and running as well as the function of these muscles in that. He also discussed precisely why it's incorrect to believe a flatter foot is actually a “weaker” foot. He also discusses why he is personally NOT a fan of the ‘short foot exercise’ and just exactly why conditioning the intrinsic musculature would not make the medial longitudinal arch ‘higher’ that could be a frequently believed misconception.
Dr Luke Kelly PhD has more than 15 years of clinical experience helping individuals with pain because of orthopedic injury as well as chronic health conditions. He has accomplished a Doctor of Philosophy in biomechanics and is actively associated with research which tries to enhance our knowledge and treatments for prevalent foot conditions, for example plantar fasciitis, foot tendon disorders, osteoarthritis in the foot in addition to children’s sports injuries. He currently is a Senior Research Fellow within the Centre for Sensorimotor Performance at the School of Human Movement & Nutrition Sciences in the University of Queensland in Australia. Luke’s latest scientific studies are studying how the brain and spine brings together sensation responses to adjust the biomechanical purpose of the feet during walking.
There is a weekly livestream named PodChatLive for the regular professional growth and learning of Podiatry practitioners and various clinicians who could be interested in the foot and related topics. PodChatLive is sent out live on Facebook and next it is edited to further improve the quality and then uploaded to YouTube to reach a broader audience. Each livestream has a unique guest or number of guests to discuss a unique subject in every episode. Inquiries are answered as they are posted on Facebook by the hosts and guests whilst in the stream on Facebook. Additionally there is a audio version of each show located on iTunes and also Spotify and the other common podcast websites that will get uploaded following the original live. The stream has created a big following which keeps getting more popular. PodChatLive can be regarded as a good way in which podiatry practitioners might get free professional development hours or education credits.
The range of themes is pretty diverse. In the second stream as the notion of the show was still being produced, the two hosts ended up being asked a live question that they didn't feel competent enough to reply to, consequently for the following episode they had on their first guest that was actually the beginning of the PodChatLive format. That first guest was Chris Bishop from Adelaide in Australia who is an authority on the 3D evaluation of gait or the assessment of how that people walk or run using sophisticated systems. The episode talked over the key benefits of and drawbacks of these techniques for use by podiatrists and also the costs involved with setting up a facility to complete a high level 3D analysis of gait. The problem of how much the setup costs in connection to the enhancement in clinical outcomes was an important part of that discussion. Chris was certainly a helpful guest and allowed the hosts to try the structure of getting a guest on remotely during a live show.
