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.
