No matter how scary it might be to find out about an ailment in your foot, it can’t be any scarier than worsening the problem by leaving it alone.
Despite their distance from your heart, the health of your feet can affect your overall health. Foot pain and variances in appearance can have many causes and should not be considered to be a normal part of life.
Both of your feet contain more than 50 bones, accounting for roughly ¼ of all the bones in your body. Add the over 60 joints and 200 muscles, ligaments, and tendons that hold them together and you have a marvel of engineering. They have a tough job, so it’s not surprising that many problems can arise if left unchecked.
If you notice and are concerned with any changes in your feet, don’t be
scared! It’s time to schedule an appointment with your doctor or a podiatrist.
