The Human Spring Approach
What is the Human Spring Approach?
In short, this approach starts with viewing the body, particularly the foot and leg as a spring. Similar to a spring, when stretched, it recoils and bounces back to its original shape and length. The configuration of the foot bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles makes it work just like a spring. Previous theories described that foot biomechanics worked purely like a system of levers and pivots, however, new technologies developed by Dr James Stoxen (Chicago, Illinois) have helped to clarify that the foot and lower limbs actually work more like a spring and a lever.
Dr John Petrozzi PhD is currently the only practitioner in Australia trained in this approach and is available for consultations and treatments at Body Mind Central.
