Our feet are the most important part of our body. We use them every day and we can walk over 3 millions steps in each year. This is the reason we should take proper care of our feet.

But scratching the bottom of my feet is one of the ways to get me to do anything so that you’ll stop! It’s one of my biggest secrets. Shhh, don’t tell.
Of course I asked my acupuncturist what she thought of acupuncture as a bunion treatment. (I had hoped she could tell me that she had successfully treated people with bunions before!)

It is not fair to say that all these conditions are only associated with flip flops. Any type of non supportive or open back type shoe can lead to some of these problems. It should also be noted that some individials are less inclined to suffer these symptoms than others. People with excessively high arched feet or excessively flat feet or certainly more vulnerable than those with a more neutral type of foot.

Rather than adapting to your flat feet, you can work towards altering problematic foot structure.

We may recommend insoles that can be easily upgraded as the foot structure improves. The fifth or little toe sits at the end of a long bone called the fifth metatarsal. At the junction of these bones is the joint where the bunionette forms.
