Podiatry at Reynella Medical Centre
How are YOUR Feet ?????
From the moment they hit the floor first thing in the morning , until we finally get off them at the end of the day , do we really give our feet a second thought ?
Did you Know??
In an average lifetime your feet will carry you approximately 150,000 km,
that’s approximately the equivalent to walking around the world FOUR times
You sweat approximately ONE Cup of perspiration through your feet every day
We cover about 5-8 km per day on our feet
There are 26 bones in the foot
Every toe has at least four arteries, four veins and four nerves
It takes a toenail about a year to completely grow
So if you think your feet are tired at the end of the day you have some very good reasons to feeling so.
