Plantar Problems


The price tag for a gait lab is not cheap, but Albert Pujos and Alex Rodriguez are quarter billion dollar bodies. For the price of two games, that $320,000 price tag could be paid for in loss production if Albert is injured.

It was no random example using Albert Pujols for gait analysis as his contract is huge and the FMS can’t solve everything. Here in Boston a similar problem exists with Kelly Olynyk with his plantar pain and Canada is up in arms. Plantar pressure mapping is a key technique to look for injuries root problems and I suggest reading Dr. Williams post on the BSMPG regarding this topic.
