It’s easy to underestimate the role our feet play in our health and daily lives but when people start to realise just how much we use them, it’s a bit of a shock! They are the first interaction our body has with the ground, the pivot point to which the body moves. It is estimated they will carry us over 130,000 Kilometres over our lifetime. It’s not hard to see why they are one of the most important parts of the body.
