Foot Anatomy

Ahh! The best for the last. Foot anatomy!

The 'inside' story. Really 'INSIDE'!

Don't worry. This is a SIMPLE overview, not a medical or technical dissertation. We leave that to the experts.

Here you can get a much better appreciation of your feet. It will help you understand why we spend all the time we do on the 'foot thing'.

We've already talked about the various Foot Pain issues and proper Foot Care.

And about the importance of Shoe Fit and how it relates to your specific foot 'construction' or make up.

By now you probably already know that your foot is an incredibly complex entity that's made up of many:

  • Bones & Joints
  • Ligaments & Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Nerves
  • Blood Vessels

OK. That's as technical or detailed as we are going to get here.

It's time you took a quick look 'inside' that old foot of yours. And we do mean 'inside'. These computer generated images let you see only some parts of the foot anatomy. This helps make it easier for you to see. All have the bones, some have ligaments and tendons, some have blood vessels.

(These 3D Computer Graphic images of the human foot are used with the kind permission of Primal Pictures of London, England. (opens new window). Since 1991 they have pursued their goal of generating a complete and medically accurate computer model of the complete human anatomy).
