The foot is a complex and intricate structure – a testament to the engineering of the human body. With 26 bones, over 30 joints and more than 100 muscles tendons and ligaments, our feet require careful maintenance if they are to function effectively during the activities that we undertake on a daily basis. The average person will walk approximately 2.5 times around the world in their lifetime, that’s a lot of mileage and means that almost everyone will suffer from some form of foot problem during their life.
