"The foot & ankle is a strong & complex mechanical structure, containing more than 26 bones, 33 joints, 100 muscles, tendons & ligaments."
"The foot is subdivided in "3" parts: Hind, Mid & Fore foot."
The HIND representing the ANKLE area; The Mid representing the ARCH area & the FORE part representing our TOES!
"It took `4 Million years to perfect the human foot."
And, it's important to include enough "fat" in our diets, to collect in the FEET to act as "shock absorbers!"
When ya think about it, really! Our feet are amazing, allowing us sensational mobility & locomotion!
And,How lucky we are, living at this point of human development, to appreciate & respect our FEET & ANKLES!!
