Richard H. (What Good Feet Offers is Priceless) I've been dealing with heel sore pain for over a YEAR!! I googled my foot pain and found what the problem is. There are many so called remedies for heel sore... cortisone injections, surgery, soaking in cold water, rolling your foot on a golf ball etc. All of them are temporary pain relief methods. None of them are long term and do not FIX the problem. Believe me when I got out of bed in the morning and could barely put my foot on the floor, I needed a solution, not a temporary pain relief. My biggest issue is that I want to start exercising and with heel sore the more you walk (or jog/run), the worse the pain is AFTERWARDS.
So I googled again and found someone recommended this store called good feet. They had a store about 5 miles from my apt so I went there with my teenage daughter. They were very nice and we sat down and discussed my pain. They show you why heel sores occur and while they're not doctors, they might as well be as they _really_ know their stuff. I always thought heel sore was a bone issue in the foot, it's not, it's a muscle issue and how you take each and every step affects the muscle and they show you how! They are really incredible.
They fit you for an insole for your shoe and show you exactly which one is right for YOUR feet. There is no small, medium or large. It's based on your YOUR feet. They also discuss shoes and they showed how most shoes do not support your feet. In fact the shoes I wore into the store were a joke. If you can take your shoe and bend it in half like a piece of paper, they you need better shoes. They sell a small variety of shoes but there's not a single shoe they sell that you can bend. It's like there's a steel rod in them.
The insoles are NOT cheap but considering they are going to HEAL my HEEL PAIN and I'm going to be able to exercise without being in pain or having pain afterwards, to me what good feet offers is PRICELESS.
