Healthy Feet

100 moving parts…26 bones…33 joints…countless muscles, tendons, and ligaments…an engineering miracle! The importance of FEET cannot be underestimated. Our feet are the basis of our gait and posture…absorbing 3 times our body weight with every step…cushioning compression for our knees, hips, and spines.

To keep them healthy, free the “10 little piggies” and walk barefoot whenever possible, and balance on 1 leg for a few minutes each day. Both of these activities “fire” the proprioceptive nerves in your ankles, and strengthen your feet and calf muscles.
