Up to 87% of people have painful feet at some time in their lives for many different reasons. One-third of older adults experience foot pain, stiffness, or aching feet. On average, people spend about four hours standing on their feet each day and take about 5,000 steps.
Only a small percentage of the population is born with foot problems. Many of our foot problems come from poorly fitting shoes, neglect or a lack of awareness of proper foot care.
