We have sprung ahead an hour and now we are looking forward to saying good bye to "ole man" winter. Spring is here and summer not too far behind. With change of seasons come changes in shoe gear. Just a few tips to better prepare your feet for the upcoming season(s):
First, examine your current spring/summer foot gear to make sure that they fit correctly and are comfortable. Second, make sure that they are not worn out. Check both the outsole and insole (if removable). If you have orthotics (foot supports) that you haven’t worn in your winter shoe gear, gradually break back into wearing them an hour or two a day to allow your feet and extremities to get re-acclimated.
Ladies (and men) if you desire to wear open shoe gear, look for adequate arch support to prevent injury or recurrence of arch or heel pain. Our office sells Spenco brand sandals which provide support for your arch. They are available in different styles and color choices for both men and women. Call us at 440-777-5358, or stop in the office.
