Structure of the Foot
The foot is a highly complex structure, containing 26 bones, 29 joints, and 42 muscles. In a lifetime, an average individual will walk around the world more than 4 times - some 115,000 miles. Therefore, it is not surprising that even a "healthy" person can develop many foot problems. Click here to view an MRI scan of the foot.
