Why are your feet important?

Updated: Mar 28

#1 They keep you active, mobile and independent!! Keeping your feet healthy can improve overall well-being and happiness

#2 They tell a much bigger story: Your feet and lower limbs are often a critical factor in developing or avoiding non communicable health diseases elsewhere in your body. ⠀

Even if it doesn't immediately seem connected to foot health, the link is real. Think obesity, arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and a range of other conditions.

#3 They are a work of art! ⠀

Or at least Leonardo Da Vinci thought so when he said:⠀

‘The human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.’ ⠀

Did you know that your foot contains 28 bones, 33 joints, more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments, and 250,000 sweat glands? ⠀

Your feet support your entire body and need to work well for you to be active and healthy.
