Thanks to your feet, you can stand tall, and run, jump, swim, kick a ball, walk across a balance beam and do a myriad of other incredible feats!
When ballet dancers go en pointe, they are able to stand on their toe tips; circus tightrope walkers grasp the ropes they cross with their feet; and for those people who are unfortunately born without their hands, feet prove to be the perfect substitute. Feet can do nearly everything that anyone would ever use their hands for, including painting masterpieces.
This site celebrates the astonishing human foot, looking at it in new, marvelous ways.
This site is a work in progress. When finished it will be a resource for “everything feet,” from how to prevent foot infections to understanding how the foot functions when in outer space-without gravity to keep us on the ground.
As a practicing podiatrist and having treated over 10,000 pairs of feet, I am committed to helping America look at their feet as they never have before. More than learning about feet, I am committed to teaching people superb foot and ankle health.
Our feet act as our basic point of contact with the earth; if they don’t work well, our entire body becomes at severe risk to develop a range of pain or problems.
As you follow my adventure through this blog, I hope that you will enjoy learning all about your incredible feet, and that you go on to enjoy your wonderful, fit and healthy feet for the balance of your long life. If you have a question or a comment, or an interesting story about your feet, please visit the Forum area, or visit me at Friendly Foot Care.
Yours in good health,
Michael Nirenberg, DPM
