If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your feet, ankles, knees, hips, or lower back, the cause may be a functional problem with your feet. The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps each and every day. Studies also show that 85% of the population overpronates – a biomechanical problem that can have a major impact on joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort.
25% of all the bones in your body are in your feet. Feet are a complex arrangement of 52 bones, 66 moveable joints, 214 ligaments that hold these joints together, and 38 muscles with tendons that move these joints. Small changes in foot function can lead to a variety of health problems including plantar fasciitis, shin splints, patellofemoral syndrome, hip bursitis and mechanical low back pain just to name a few. The health of your body really does rest on your feet.
