How many bones are in a foot?

The foot consists of 26 to 28 bones, and the five triangular arches connecting the heel and each toe, and the semicircular arch consisting of the apexes of these triangles, provide the unique functionality of the human foot.

This complex structure provides propulsive force when stepping back and absorbs the shock of walking by slightly bending the articulated bones.

If you experience pain or discomfort in your feet, it is possible that a misalignment of tendons or muscles may be affecting the bones in your feet.  Exercise using the upper body is also important as it balances the muscles throughout the body.
