What’s Causing Your Foot Pain?
Is there a relation between foot pain and lower extremity joint pain? Researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) and Harvard Medical School found out that there is a significant association between foot pain and knee or hip pain.
“Studying the interaction between the knee and the foot or the hip and the foot is very important because it’s a kinetic chain.”
“The foot is the first part of the body that makes contact with the ground. Its primary function is a shock absorber. If the shock-absorbing capability of the foot is somehow altered or minimized, it’s going to affect other body parts,” says Dr. Positano director of the Non-Surgical Foot and Ankle Service, Joe DiMaggio Sports Medicine Foot and Ankle Center at HSS.
