The word "biomechanics" (1899) and the related "biomechanical" (1856) from the Ancient Greek βίος bios "life" and ηχανική, mēchanikē "mechanics", to refer to the study of the mechanical principles of living organisms, particularly their movement and structure.
i.e. the study of joints and their movement.
Orthotics, also known as prescription insoles are inserts that are placed in your footwear. They are specifically designed to improve the alignment of the lower limbs which can improve the biomechanical function of your feet whilst improving your posture.
Orthotics can provide support and help to improve and restore the correct alignment of your feet and lower limbs. They can help to reduce abnormal stresses placed upon tendons, ligaments, muscles and the joints and bones which can reduce irritation, pain and inflammation.
Orthotics can often help treat the following conditions:
Leg length differences
Forefoot pain (neuroma)
Pain from corns and callus
Some back pain
