This branch of medicine has grown tremendously as more and more evidence shows how much of our health is tied to the wellbeing of our feet. We often forget that our feet are the interfaces between our bodies and the earth. Much of our lives are spent on our feet, with the pressure and weight of our entire bodies concentrated in two small areas.
As all the parts of the skeleton and musculature are interconnected, there is no wonder that so much of our bodily function, structure and mobility is intricately tied to the feet.
