Why do we have toes? – In short for balance. The great toes, in particular, take much of our body weight as we balance.
One of our team members at Happy Feet Pedorthics commented recently that the word “toes” written in the space for pre-existing condition is not a medical term. True but it is the one we use all the time. Why because it is just so inclusive of what we see every day! And, use of the term puts it well and truly in our mind what we have to think about as pedorthists when we are completing the assessment and fitting to then make the pedorthic recommendation, at Happy Feet Pedorthics.
