Common Foot Problems
The human foot has 42 muscles, 26 bones, 33 joints, and at least 50 ligaments and tendons made of strong fibrous tissues to keep all the moving parts together... plus 250,000 sweat glands. The foot is an evolutionary marvel, capable of handling hundreds of tons of force - your weight in motion - every day. The foot's myriad parts, including the toes, heel, and ball, work in harmony to get you from one place to another. But the stress of carrying you around puts your feet at a high risk of injury, more so than any other part of your body.
