The human body consists of 206 bones, 26 of which are in each foot. That means that more than a quarter of our bones reside in the feet. That being said, there are numerous issues that involve the foot bones. Most foot conditions can go unnoticed for months to years, and present as dull achy pains in the foot or ankle.
However, if left untreated, they usually spawn into more serious conditions such as arthritis, foot deformities, tumors or fractures. As bones can take a while to heal, its highly recommended that any concern involving them be assessed sooner rather than later to improve outcomes.
