Feet are remarkable things. Did you know that more than a quarter of your body’s 206 bones are in your feet? Yes, it's true! Each of your feet has 26 bones, plus two sesamoids (bones embedded within a tendon), and 33 joints that work with a complex array of muscles and tendons, every time you take a step.
But your feet don’t just take you from here to there. They help you balance, support your body, and act as your body’s shock absorbers, enduring enormous amounts of pressure every day (several tons over the course of a one-mile run).
With that much going on below your knees, it’s no surprise that your feet need plenty of care to keep them at their best.
Tips to Keep Your Feet Healthy
TIP: Shopping for new shoes? Buy shoes at the end of the day when your feet are the largest so that you can find the best fit.
Lastly, being active improves blood flow to the feet and helps to keep them happy and healthy. Enjoy these first few days of Fall with a brisk walk through the woods. If you're sitting inside for prolonged periods of the day, keep your feet moving by wiggling your toes and making ankle circles.
