ANATOMY 101.1
"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!!

Our feet & ankles are part of our bodies that need special attention, care & basic fitness; Especially keeping our "fore-foot, our toe nails appearing at their "healthiest!"!!

Keeping our FEET "feeling & looking" healthy, does take periodic maintenance! Regular trimming of the TOE nails & conditioning of the cuticles, is an "all year commitment, especially during, the Summer months, as we wear our sandals & flip-flops with our Beach apparel!

"That's, if, we want to look our best!"
