Podiatry in Taekwondo
I did a quick search and didn't come up with anything much on podiatry in taekwondo. I train in it very often and compete as well... Now since its a martial art...there's obviously quite a lot of injuries but the competition, sports (olympic) aspect of taekwondo places all emphasis on kicking and footwork...so the feet get quite a pounding.
Anyway, I was wondering if any there has been any research into the biomechanics of taekwondo, possible applications of orthotic devices, training shoes and injury prevention/rehabilitation...
I've been searching through my uni library and their subscriptions to other databases but can't seem to find anything related to what I'm looking for. Actually about the only thing I found was the article on the IPJ injury by some Korean authors but that was also on this forum to xD
