Do you struggle with foot pain? Although a relatively small part of your body, your feet play a large role in enabling you to do what you do each day. Unlike other parts of the body, foot pain often gets “swept under the rug” as a necessary evil when it comes to being on your feet. You probably wouldn’t ignore excessive pain coming from your ear, so why do you ignore it when it comes from your feet?
As you walk, your foot absorbs not just your entire body weight, but one and a half times your body weight as it propels you forward in each step. The average moderately active person is estimated to take 7500 steps per day, equaling out to 110,000 miles throughout the course of his or her lifetime. To put this into perspective, this is equivalent to walking around the earth’s equator FIVE TIMES.
