Today's Episode:

The Feet

What's the first thing you think about when you think of walking? For many of us it is the feet. In this episode, we explore the feet and their myriad bones, muscles, and connective tissue and how to best care for your feet to keep them pain-free and healthy into your golden years.

In this Podcast...

We discuss:

•  How the feet works with the rest of the body to walk

•  Foot problems like heel spurs (plantar fasciatis, bunyons, flat feet, Morton's neuroma)

•  The anatomy of the foot, and ankle, the miraculous arches and the muscles that bring them together

•  How bad positioning of the feet when walking can lead to knee, hip, neck and other issues

•  Walking with shoes versus walking barefoot

•  How to care for your feet (exercises for strength and release)

• How to run correctly
