A quarter of all the bones in the human body are in the feet, and each foot has 26 bones and 30 joints. There are 52 bones in both feet out of 206 bones in our whole body, which makes up more than 25% of the total bones in the human body.
It may sound strange to read and listen to but think about it, our feet support all the weight of our body and allow us to stand, walk, jump, run and climb.
The bones and joints in our feet absorb energy and release it efficiently. This is one of the reasons why humans can surpass any other animal in the race for endurance.
