Foot Wear

 

Most people are affected at some point with foot problems.

The one general recommendation is that you always investigate how well your shoes are fitting.

Many common foot problems are directly related to ill-fitting shoes.

Poorly fitting shoes can make symptoms of foot pain worse and in many cases be the source of the foot problem.

It is important to purchase footwear that fits properly from the moment you buy them. Never buy footwear hoping they will “break in” later.

 

Typically an assessment includes history taking, bony palpation, range of motion testing, gait analysis, all during your footwear consultation!

 

Signs that your shoes fit too small include “foot cramping” or “falling asleep” while walking or running as well as blistering on or between your toes.

Properly fitted shoes allow adequate room to freely wiggle your toes.

Poorly fitting shoes can also cause or aggravate bunions, calluses, hammertoes, and other common foot problems.

Looking at the inside and outside of your shoes for pressure points and wear is a good starting point.

For many people with more serious conditions like diabetes, proper fitting footwear is even more critical.

 

Schedule a foot wear consult and you may be surprised by what you learn!
