Lack of proper care, ill-fitting shoes and general foot neglect are responsible for the majority of foot problems.
It’s important to understand your feet have direct impact on the rest of your body and support you with each step. A small abnormality in foot function can have a large impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort.
When you are running, the pressure on your feet can be three or four times your body weight. Even walking can produce more pressure than the sum of your body weight. The American Podiatric Medical Association says that the average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. That adds up to about 115,000 miles in a lifetime or more than four times the circumference of the globe. That is a lot of walking with ill-fitting shoes or painful feet!
Remember if you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your ankles, knees or hip joints the direct cause may be the function of your feet or ill-fitting shoes.
