A few facts about the foot...

  • A human foot & ankle is a strong, mechanical structure that contain 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons & ligaments.
  • The 52 bones in your feet make up one quarter of all the bones in your body. When they are out of alignment, so is the rest of your body.
  • There are approximately 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet, and they excrete as much as half a pint of moisture each day.
  • The soles of your feet contain more sweat glands and sensory nerve endings per square centimeter than any other part of the body.

Yet, the foot is one of the most ignored members of the body.
