What is Combination Foot
Combination foot (also known as;Elvis Foot, Rock & Roll Foot) occurs when your feet over supinate and over pronate with each step. Generally a person who has a bad walking gait either over pronates or over supinates, however in some cases both abnormalities appear in combination.
Inspection of the sole of walking shoes will show excessive wear on both outside edges of the shoe with virtually no wear in the centre of the sole.
- Difficulty walking long distance without ankle pain
- Instability of the foot with a tendency to roll the ankle
- Calluses on outside and inside edges of the feet
- Knee and hip pain
GAIT CYCLE ANALYSIS
The Gait Analysis pages describe how each of the 12 common foot problems affect the way you walk and how this affects the physiology of your body as a whole. An awkward gait causing abnormal steps will change how your weight is distributed across your lower back and lower body joints. An awkward gait can lead to back pain, hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain & heel pain and in many cases; shoulder and neck pain! Its important to remember that your feet are the foundation that support your whole body. If the foundation is faulty, your whole body is affected.

Bio Human 3D Model
Click on the image to the left to see a 3d Bio Human model of the Anatomy and Physiology of your foot. By selecting any component of the anatomy of this model of your foot you can view it on its own. You can turn the model 360 degrees, zoom in and out and strip away parts to reveal the functions of the foot. This is a medical tool and is used by doctors and surgeons world wide and accurately depicts the physiology of the human foot in detail.
Select the “click to interact in 3d” to manipulate the model. Select any anatomical component using your mouse pointer. The Anatomical component will change colour. Go to the menu that appears on your screen where you can the select different menu items that allow you to manipulate the model. Note: Edit items in the menu allow you to isolate parts, dissect parts and cross section parts of the foot anatomy.
