The foot core system: a new paradigm for understanding intrinsic foot muscle function

The foot is a complex structure with many articulations and multiple degrees of freedom that play an important role in static posture and dynamic activities. The evolutionary development of the arch of the foot was coincident with the greater demands placed on the foot as humans began to run. The movement and stability of the arch is controlled by intrinsic and extrinsic muscles. However, the intrinsic muscles are largely ignored by clinicians and researchers. As such, these muscles are seldom addressed in rehabilitation programmes. Interventions for foot-related problems are more often directed at externally supporting the foot rather than training these muscles to function as they are designed. In this paper, we propose a novel paradigm for understanding the function of the foot.

Turning up the heat: Julien Périard on heat illness, acclimatisation and cooling strategies

Many athletic events, such as the current Wimbledon Tennis Championships, are staged in hot to very hot environmental conditions. Clinicians should be aware of the risks posed to athletes competing under heat stress and how to mitigate them.

Dr. Julien Périard is a former successful triathlete and now works at Aspetar, Qatar, as a senior research scientist investigating athletic performance under heat stress conditions. BJSM’s Liam West (@Liam_West) poses questions about what heat illness encompasses, what signs and symptoms to look for and how to take care of athletes.
