The human upright gait takes its toll on the body. It creates considerable stress for our locomotor system (the ability to move using the muscular and skeletal systems) and especially for our feet.
The feet carry the whole of our body weight and walk an average of 5,000 steps a day. Our modern lifestyle and leisure activities for example sports, and the wearing of high-heeled and uncomfortable footwear, make us more prone to pain in the feet.
