As chiropractors, we are often asked questions about back and neck pain. Which relate to the spine, but what most people neglect is the importance of your feet! You walk, run, sit, stand, etc. You sometimes wear shoes that don't fit or that are brutal on your feet, and then wonder why your back hurts! Give your feet the love and appreciation you deserve! Here's what you need to know.

Your Feet Enable Your Movement

Did you know that your feet have over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments and 52 bones! So obviously taking proper care of your feet is important.

Proper Foot Care

Pain is usually an indication of bigger problems. For example, plantar fasciitis showcases itself through pain, but is due to neglecting your feet. Here's what you can do to prevent issue:

  • Wear comfortable shoes

  • Use arch supports

  • Walk on soft surfaces whenever possible (i.e. avoid concrete!)

  • Visit your chiropractor regularly
