How feet work vs how shoes work

Feet are amazing things. There are 26 bones packed into a tight little package that is designed to support the whole body, both resting and in motion. The foot can be divided into two major parts, the foot, and the toes. The toes are for balance, The foot is a springing, balance and also a pivot point. In an ideal world, when we walk or run, the earth would give way to the weight of our body. Think sandy beach. But that is not the reality of the world, which is why we have shoes.

Shoes are like gloves for the feet. They have a purpose. It is to protect our feet from whatever we are doing. If you are a logger, wearing ballet shoes is not maybe the best choice. Shoes are also designed to function in a certain way. Your heel is supposed to be securely fastened into the heel of the shoe, which is why shoes have laces and straps.

When feet are not operating properly or the foot is not securely fastened into the shoe, then that’s when problems happen. Problems like plantar fasciitis, corns, and calluses, tired legs, and sore ankles. A lot of that can also be attributed to not actually balancing on your feet well. In order to fix these problems a lot of people spend a lot of money seeking answers. At Footcare by Nurses we think there is a different way.
