In our Romford practice on Tuesday we saw a lady seeking our expert help.
She had had debilitating pain for over 6 months.
After scanning and assessing her we found that a key factor in her symptoms were a low arched foot type and poor fitting footwear. She was wearing a pair of flimsy trainers for work which she was not lacing up and sloppy slippers were worn at home.
So, our key focus was to give footwear advise. We fitted her with a pair of our house shoes and supportive orthotics/insoles into her shoes.
She felt immediate relief and reported a feeling of being supported and comfortable in her shoes.
We also showed how to tie her shoe laces correctly and explained the importance of this. We sent her away with an easy to follow rehabilitation programme. She was so pleased with the outcome and happy on leaving. We will review her in 3 weeks.
