Our feet are too often the most neglected part of our bodies. This should not be the case as they walk us through life”. How often have you said to yourself “My feet are killing me”? It is probably true that the only time that we think about our feet is when they are tired and aching or when we are about to buy a new pair of shoes. Yet we rely on our feet every day, they move us about, they are often squeezed into ill-fitting footwear and they support our entire body weight! It is no surprise that they sometimes have a cause to complain. Maybe it is because we take our feet for granted that we tend to neglect them.
