In today’s program Dr. Reminga talks about the importance of moving and how healthy feet play a key role. In the modern age we live in, we have become less and less mobile in our everyday lives. Sitting at a computer for work or enjoyment, watching TV, sitting behind the wheel of a car, sitting down to eat 3 meals a day, sitting while waiting for an appointment, sitting and chatting with a friend, sitting at the movie theater… you get the point. Americans are sitting more than ever and it’s taking a toll. From the driver’s seat, to the office chair, to the couch… most of our waking hours are spent sitting down.

Dr. James Levin director of the Mayo Clinic-Arizona State University coined the phrase.. “Sitting is the new smoking” which implies that sitting for long periods of time, day in and day out, can have a negative effect on our overall health… worse than smoking. Through research, it has been revealed that prolonged sitting increases the risk of developing serious illnesses such as: various types of cancer, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes.

If your feet aren’t functioning well or you feel pain with each step, moving can become problematic. Your feet are the vehicle to get you where you need to go and therefore an important part of a health lifestyle. Your foot health has a direct relationship to how much or how little you move in a day. If your feet are sore and achy, or if they hurt and cause you pain… you’re more likely to rest more and stay off your feet. Listen to today’s program as Dr. Reminga talks about the important role your feet play in staying active.

Dr. Daniel Reminga's Weekly Radio Show "Your Feet Your Health" airs every Wednesday at 10 am & 5 pm on WKMJ 93.5FM, WMPL 920AM, WUPY 101.1FM radio. Listen to past recordings here.
