Your feet are the foundation of our entire body but the majority of us hardly give them a second thought aside from squeezing them into our joggers. For Dr. Emily Splichal – podiatrist, movement specialist, author, and global leader in barefoot science and rehabilitation – clueing people up on the importance of our extremities is a personal mission.

“As the only contact point between the body and the ground, our feet are not only our body's foundation (base) but also our brain's gateway into the perception of the ground we walk on,” Emily says. “Any imbalance in our foundation (feet) will impact our body's alignment proximally. Similarly, any disconnect between the feet, brain, and ground can result in delayed stability when we move and increase our risk of overuse injuries.”
