Fun Foot Facts!

Here are some interesting facts about feet I bet you didn't know!
  • Did you know that your feet account for almost 25% of the bones in your body? Each foot is an intricate structure containing 26 bones. Thirty-three joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and tendons hold the structure together and allow it to move in a variety of ways. This is significant because it really shows you how important the health and proper functioning of your foot is to the rest of your body. 
  • There are over 250,000 sweat glands in your foot. Are you sure you want to cover them up with shoes and socks? Imagine how good it would feel to have those feet free and uncovered while running!
  • The average foot should get about 2 sizes bigger when a person stands up. So if we are wearing shoes that restrict our feet from shifting and flexing, doesn't that seem a little wrong?
