The Foot and Ankle, what you need to know.
Almost all sports begin start with the feet. The foot is the major point of contact for generating force in sports. If there's any deficiency within your feet, the rest of it your body must overcompensate and can be dysfunctional overtime. The feet govern your fast twitch capabilities, your hand-eye coordination, and help prevent injury. This can be optimized through a series of balance and strength modalities, that will hyper train the feet.
