The feet are the support for the entire body, so problems in the feet = problems in the body. The effect of not retaining proper arch structure in the feet can result in malfunction of the knees, hips, low back and much more!
Let’s take a look at a few important statistics regarding the feet:
- 1/4 of the body’s bones are in the feet
- 1% of the worlds population has optimal foot structure
- 5117 average number of steps taken daily
- 99% of the population pronates or supinates
What does it mean to pronate or supinate, simply put this is when you walk more on the inside or the outside of your foot. You will be able to easily spot this by looking at the wear pattern on the bottom of some shoes that you have put some miles on.
