Foot

When walking, over twice your body weight goes through your foot (even more so when running or jumping) - this happens about 10,000 times per day. So it's not really surprising that small imbalances in your foot can lead to large amounts of pain.   This may appear purely as foot pain but can also cause pain into the low back and sometimes even into the neck.  75% of foot pain is caused by Plantar Fascitis.
