Strong, active feet are the foundation for a strong, active body
Human beings are designed to move. We are motion machines, designed to feel good while on the go. BUT, we’ve stopped moving and we are “sitting ourselves to death”. You may have heard that sitting is the new smoking. Today, Americans spend an average of 13 hours a day sitting. Dr. James Levine, the director of the Mayo Clinic – Arizona State University, argues that sitting for as little as 2 continuous hours increases the rate of heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cancer, back and neck pain and foot orthotics problems.
Let’s face it, walking on grass and sand is no longer the daily norm. Your feet adapt to the earth and provide feedback to your brain about where you are going and how you need to get there. Our feet are our foundation and the connection between our bodies and the ground. Unfortunately, we spend our days walking on hard man-made surfaces and wearing shoes 90% of our days, weakening our feet over time.
Your feet are your foundation for MOVEMENT. They are active and complex networks of bones, joints, tissues, muscles and nerve endings that all work together to help coordinate motion in the rest of your body. Imbalances in your feet can be felt all the way up your body into your neck and shoulders. Your feet have many purposes. The foot acts as a shock absorber, a balance mechanism, a propulsion system and a sensory organ. They MOVE YOU. The health and strength of your feet determine how easy it is for you to stand, walk, run, jump, skip and dance your way through life.
