  • NY PODIATRIST STATES, "SHOES AND SOCKS BLOCK SENSORY INPUT TO THE FEET"

 

NEW YORK PODIATRIST, DR. EMILY SPLICHAL STATES, "EACH FOOT IS MADE UP OF 33 JOINTS, 26 BONES, AND MORE THAN 100 MUSCLES, TENDONS AND LIGAMENTS, AND IT IS LOADED INSIDE AND OUT WITH SENSORS.  RESEARCHERS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA MADE A HUGE DISCOVERY IN 2002:  104 UNIQUE, ULTRASPEEDY "MECHANORECEPTORS" ON THE SOLE.  THEY MEASURE PRESSURE AND INDENTATION WHICH TOGETHER TELL YOU HOW TO BALANCE.  THESE PLANTAR NERVES HELP YOU SEND MICROSECOND ADJUSTMENTS THAT KEEP YOU UPRIGHT AND STABLE.  EVER WONDER WHAT PUTTING ON SHOES AND SOCKS DOES TO THIS VITAL INPUT?  IT BLOCKS IT AND FORCES THE BIGGER, LESS-PRECISE SENSORS IN THE ANKLE AND LOWER LEG TO DO THE JOB INSTEAD."

SO I GUESS THE MORAL OF THIS STORY IS IF WE WERE BARE FOOT WE MIGHT HAVE BETTER BALANCE, BUT PROPER SHOES WITH CUSTOM ORTHOTICS ARE ABSOLUTELY VITAL FOR PROPER HEALTH AND ALIGNMENT OF THE ENTIRE BODY.
