OUR FEET ARE OUR FOUNDATION - AND THE FOOT MUSCLES ARE THE ALPHA AND THE OMEGA FOR A HEALTHY POSTURE
"The foot is a work of art made up of 26 bones, 19 muscles and 107 ligaments. A work of art needs a frame, not a cage."
Leonardo da Vinci
However, many conventional shoes are just that: A cage that clamps and fixes our feet, contributing to atrophy of the muscles and reducing the mobility of the tendons and joints. The feet lose their strength, and therefore their function as a stable foundation of our body.
The consequences of this can be skew foot, sunken arches, and flat foot, ham- mer toe, hallux valgus, splay foot and heel spur. And higher up in the body there are knee, hip and back problems, and even neck-ache and headaches.
