* 3 out of 4 Americans experience serious foot problems in their 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 your body.

*Only a small percentage of the population is born with foot problems.
-It's neglect and a lack of awareness of proper care-including ill fitting
shoes that bring on problems.

* Women have about four times as many foot problems as men.
-High heels are partly to blame.

* The average person takes 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day, which adds up to
about 115,000 miles over a lifetime.
-That's enough to go around the circumference of the earth four times.
* Women on average walk 3 miles farther per day than the opposite sex.

* 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.

* Your two feet may be different sizes.
-Buy shoes for the larger one.

* Your feet mirror your general health.
-Conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show
their initial symptoms in the feet. Therefore, foot ailments can be your first
sign of more serious medical problems.

* Walking is the best exercise for your feet.
-It also contributes to your general health by improving circulation,
contributing to weight control and promoting all-around well being.
