Get help for aching feet and sore ankles with Foot & Ankle Health – a new report from the experts at University Health News!
Your feet are the first part of the body to touch the ground. You rely on them every morning when you get out of bed and head to the kitchen for coffee. Their primary function is to serve as shock absorbers for your entire body. That’s why when you have problems with your feet or ankles it often triggers problems with your knees, hips, and possibly even your lower back.
Your feet and ankles are made up of 28 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments that work together to provide support, balance, and mobility. Each time you walk your ankles support 1½ times your body weight. If you’re running or jogging they’re taking on as much as 8 times your weight.
No wonder foot problems send more than 7,000,000 Americans to the doctor every year. To help keep your feet and ankles healthy, take a look at Foot & Ankle Health from the experts at University Health News.
