is Foot Pain Normal?
Absolutely not! Your feet are very specialized structures with 26 bones, 33 joints, with more than a 100 structures including tendons, ligaments, muscles, nerves and vessels in each foot. Pain is your body telling you that something is wrong and needs attention. That’s where a podiatrist comes in...
