“The childhood song, Dem Bones where “The foot bone is connected to the leg bone” adequately describes how I look at the body. When an injury occurs in one area of the body, changes in posture in response to that injury can create stress, limitations and pain in other areas far removed from the point of initial insult. These secondary areas, can present with pain, dysfunction and limitation of motion and act as a primary site of distress. Without a comprehensive history and evaluation the interrelationships between these sites are never addressed and therefore limits the potential of full recovery of either site. So, in my experience, the foot bone is connected to the neck bone and the neck will not function properly if the compensations the body makes to the foot injury are not addressed ” C.
