As a podiatrist, I may be biased about the role of the foot in providing a stable foundation; it is what we stand, walk and run on.  If the feet are not functioning properly, then our base of stability would be lost or compromised. If the base is unstable, then the other areas that depend on this support would also be compromised, i.e., hip, knee, lower back, etc. In addition, these areas have to adjust accordingly to maintain some level of support.  This change of alignment of the body is one important cause of foot and ankle injuries.
