April is National Foot Health Awareness Month!

Your feet are the support system for your whole body. Twenty separate muscles work together to operate the joints of your feet, which are home to more nerve endings per square centimeter than any other part of your body! The condition of your feet affects your knees, hips, and spine, so careful attention must be given to ensure proper support.   Many people underestimate the importance of foot health and often don't seek treatment until there are serious issues or pain. 

Imbalances in the feet can cause issues like Plantar Fasciitis or low back pain, on which $50 billion is spent annually just in the US for treatment. But pain doesn't necessarily have to be present for a problem to arise. Below are a few facts that point to the great importance of foot support:


  • Each foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 100+ ligaments
  • When running, pressure on your feet can be up to 4 times your body weight.
  • The average person walks 7,500 steps a day and 110,000 miles in their lifetime.


The good news is, imbalances or issues like Plantar Fasciitis don't have to be life-long struggles! It may be surprising that a simple arch support can dramatically decrease pain and increase mobility, but that is exactly what it can do!
