FUSS about FEET, judge for yourself.

  • Each of our feet contain 26 bones – which accounts for 1/4 of the bones in our entire body. When these bones are out of alignment, so is the rest of the body.
  • It’s also interesting that there are 26 vertebrae in our spine which is the same number of bones that is in each foot.
  • There are 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons in each foot.
  • Each foot has approximately 125,000 sweat glands. This means that the average person can produce up to 22 liters of sweat in just one shoe, every year!
  • The skin on the sole of your foot can be up to 20 times as thick as the rest of the skin on your body.
  • One of the reasons that feet are so ticklish is because there are more sensory nerve endings per inch than in any other place on the body.
  • Your feet mirror your general health. Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet – issues that show up in your feet can be your first sign of more serious medical problems.
