Patient Education

  • The average adult takes in excess of 18,000 steps a day (even more for kids)
  • Most people walk about 70,000 miles in a lifetime – that’s 4 times around the Earth
  • Leonardo da Vinci called the foot “A masterpiece of engineering”
  • Every time your foot hits the floor when walking, it’s the equivalent of twice your body weight. Running increases this up to three times your body weight
  • The foot has 250,000 sweat glands releasing about a quarter pint of perspiration a day
  • An adult has 26 bones in each foot
  • There are over 7,000 nerve endings in each foot
