 feet facts:

  •     Between 75% and 80% of the adult population have some form of foot problem
  •     The average adult walks 4000 to 6000 steps a day and our feet carry us the equivalent of five times round the earth in an average lifetime
  •     The foot contains 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles
  •     1/4 of all the bones in the human body are down in your feet; when these bones are out of alignment, so is the rest of the body
  •     There are 250,000 sweat glands in a pair of feet. Sweat glands in the feet excrete as much as a half-pint of moisture a day
