Every year you dread spring cleaning. Not because of the work, but because those added steps to get the winter dust and clutter out of the house have caused you some foot pain. You don’t want this to compromise your vacations and summer events.
Now, I recognize that some of you ladies thoroughly enjoy spring cleaning. But for many of us, it’s a chore we’d rather pass on! But spring cleaning isn’t the only warm-weather chore that causes problems. Planting flowers in the garden can be just as much of a problem with all of the bending, twisting, pivoting, and digging we have to do.
If warm weather activities have brought about foot pain, you probably don’t have the right type of shoe on.
You’re walking along, focusing on work or your children or your grocery list. But then a sharp pain shoots up from the arch of your foot. It’s so sudden you stumble.
What is this pain? What causes it? Arch pain has many forms and causes, and it all depends on where the pain is located in your foot.
A good foundation is the beginning of a new, more successful you. And it all starts with a good mental outlook; positive energy coming from within; and a desire to function in a healthier and more active way.
Let us help by supporting you. Our new, functional women’s foot orthotics recently added to our product line can give you the added support you need.
When your feet hurt, you can hurt all over. We’ve all heard “the thigh bone connects to the hip bone.” And while you can have pains in our back, hips, knees or legs that aren’t related to the foot or the way you walk (termed biomechanics), often times the feet are the cause of symptoms in these upper areas.
Heel pain – ouch! It can really hurt and affect your lifestyle. During the early stages of this condition, stiffness in the foot might be your first clue. It may have started with a sensation like a stone bruise under the heel of your foot.
