It’s no surprise that our feet often hurt considering that an average day of walking exerts a force on the feet that’s equal to several hundred tons. An average person takes between five and seven thousand steps per day. In a lifetime that is equivalent to two times around the world! All that rushing around makes our feet more prone to injury than any other part of the body.

Your feet mirror your general health. Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet – so foot ailments can be your first sign of more serious medical problems. Studies show that 3 out of 4 Americans experience serious foot problems in their lifetime. Despite the millions of aching feet out there, many of us don’t seek the medical attention we need for relief. Foot pain is never normal, and you shouldn’t be resigned to teetering around on sore feet.
