The Feet could be classed as a miracle of natural engineering, The foot is made up of 26 bones, 33 joints,107 ligaments and 19 muscles. In fact the 52 bones in your feet equal a ¼ of all the bones in your body. Your feet are complex pieces of machinery and need regular maintenance.
Each of these bones work together to form lever which will lock and unlock as the individual moves forward.
The average person walks about 10,000 steps a day. During a lifetime it is thought that a person has walked enough steps to have travelled around the planet more than 4 times which is approximately 115,000 miles, hence The foot accepts as much load as the hip and knee and indeed some of the smaller joint accepts even more per unit area and its disorder can produce variety of dysfunction leading to pain pathological conditions such as calluses corns and variety of foot pain therefore they need maintaining, repairing and regular servicing.
