Agony of "De-Feet"
 

Feet are said to be the "mirror" of an individual's health because medical problems such as arthritis and circulatory disorders often reveal their symptoms in the lower extremities. Serious consequences can arise without proper examination, diagnosis, and treatment of foot and ankle problems in the earliest stages possible. Yet, foot disorders are among the most widespread and neglected health problems in our culture.

The tendency to overlook symptoms of the foot and ankle disorders may be attributed to a generally accepted misconception: many people assume that a certain amount of foot pain is normal, and therefore resign themselves to living with problems that could be treated, relieved or eliminated. The importance of foot and ankle health cannot be overstated.
