It’s not surprising to have ankle and foot aches and pains. Long work days, Calgary’s winters, sports injuries can all easily add up to constant discomfort.

On average, we take over a 1000 steps per day. While walking your feet should naturally roll inward after contacting the ground. This allows the foot to adjust with the contour of the ground and act as a cushion to the body.  But flat feet, over-pronated feet, walking and running style and different shoes are all factors that can negatively affect this natural motion. As well, existing muscular-skeletal conditions from the neck down play a significant role.
