Foot conditions: symptoms, treatments and footwear advice


The human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and over 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons made up of tough fibrous tissue that hold all the moving parts together.

The foot is an evolutionary marvel, capable of supporting hundreds of tons of force - your weight in motion - every day. The countless parts of the foot, including the toes, heel and metatarsal heads, work together to allow you to move and stand for long periods of time.

 

But the pressures of weight-bearing put your feet at a higher risk of injury than any other part of the body. Many foot problems, such as claw toes, blisters, bunion, corns, flat feet, sunken feet and metatarsalgia can develop because of underlying diseases, ill-fitting shoes or simple wear and tear with age.
