Foot health: the unsung hero of whole-body happiness.

Posted on

Your feet might be the hardest working part of your body. They carry the load, set the course, bear the weight and form the foundation. Our feet are fine-tuned instruments, with 26 bones, 30 joints and countless ligaments, tendons and muscles, all working in unison to function properly. They're responsible for shock absorption, weight distribution and alignment of the whole body. And yet most people's feet get a raw deal. You squeeze them into shoes that don't quite fit, because what's a little toe pain in the grand scheme of things? You revel in the relief of kicking off your shoes at the end of the day, because how would you even know you'd worked hard if your feet didn't ache? You wear thin, flimsy flips because they look cute. It's all par for the course, you say. But it needn't be. And if we want to get the best out of our bodies, we should pay more attention to the parts of us putting in the hard yards. Sure your calves look amazing in high-heels, but are those extra inches worth the pain they can cause through conditions like Plantar Fasciitis?
