If your feet are well-aligned, your toes will point straight ahead when you are walking. The first point of contact is your heel, then the outside border of your foot, then the ball of your foot and finally the big toe.
It’s rare that two feet are exactly the same; one of them is often larger than the other and the gait pattern of your right foot does not usually match that of your left.
Seventy-five percent of Canadians will experience foot health problems of varying degrees of severity at one time or another in their lives. About 19 percent of the Canadian population has an average of 1.4 foot problems each year.

Plantar fasciitis is a common foot problem.
Plantar fasciitis is a common foot problem, starting with a dull intermittent pain in the heel and sometimes progressing into a sharp persistent pain. The pain is often at its worst upon awakening and getting up in the morning (or after sitting down for an extended period and then resuming activity), causing hobbling or limping for a few minutes before a comfortable stride can be resumed. As weight continues to be applied during walking or standing, mild or severe pain may persist.
