Our feet are the foundations of our bodies, yet we give them little respect. Your feet are probably the last part of your body you think about and we take them for granted until they start hurting. They're too important to overlook, though: With some 26 bones and a complex framework of muscles, tendons and ligaments, your feet absorb the impact of your full body weight with every step, keeping you balanced and upright in the process
The problems that can afflict your feet are numerous. Foot odour, cracked skin, fallen arches, corns, ingrown toenails, fungal infections and even damaged bones can cause discomfort and reduced mobility. You don't need an expensive spa treatment to take care of your feet. Spending just a few minutes a day on foot care and choosing the right support, shoes and socks can keep you free of problems that may lead to pain and even disability.
