What is Biomechanics?

To understand what biomechanics is, we simply need to break down the term into two parts. The word ‘Bio’ is a shortened version of the word ‘biology’ and the term ‘mechanics’ refers to the functional movement of something. So in summary, biomechanics refers to the study of human functional movement, in this case specifically the study of the lower limb. Biomechanics is a very broad spectrum term and covers many conditions within podiatry.
