My Feet Hurt!
‘My feet are killing me’ is a common cry, yet research shows that only a fraction of those suffering from sore feet seek professional help. A common misconception is that sore feet are normal; they are not.
Some feet have special needs – children’s feet, sporting feet, working feet, mature feet and feet affected by disease.
Clinical studies show that by 50, we are 80% more likely to develop arthritis in the foot and ankle as well as being highly likely to develop toe and joint deformities.
By the time we reach 50, our feet have covered 86,000 kilometres, making them more prone to injury and disease.
