Our feet are amazing things. In fact not many people realise that they house a quarter of our bodies bones, contain over 100,000 receptors in each foot and have a very large role in movement.
So why does such a small area of our body contain so many bones and receptors? It’s because our feet are designed to move and interact with the environment around us to guide our movement. As with any area in the body, when its job is no longer being done, other areas of the body need to compensate and take extra load – and the foot is no exception!
