Foot pain is very common
About 70% of Britons will suffer foot pain at some time in their lives. The foot is a complex structure of 26 bones and 33 joints, layered with an intertwining web of more than 120 muscles, ligaments, and nerves. If you consider that with each step we take, a force of 2-3 times our body weight is placed on our feet and during a typical day we take 8,000 - 10,000 steps, it comes as no surprise that at some time in our lives we will all suffer from some type of foot pain. The purpose of this website is to provide you with detailed information regarding the most common types of foot pain, why it occurs and what you can do to alleviate foot pain.
