Rob's Road to Recovery: Overcoming Foot Pain with Arch Supports

Written by The Good Feet Team  •  Last Updated: Nov 30, 2023

Rob's journey to find relief from excruciating pain in his feet is a story of perseverance and the importance of finding the right solution. For Rob, pain was not a new concept. He had always believed in the mantra of 'no pain, no gain', and as a result, he had pushed his body to its limits during his younger days playing rugby league and later on in his career as a bodybuilder, which he pursued seriously.

Despite his active lifestyle, Rob's pain caught up with him, and at the age of 65, he found himself struggling to walk and even finish a game of golf. The pain was severe and ran up his legs from both heels. He tried every possible method to find relief, from soaking his feet in ice water to cortisone injections, but nothing seemed to work.

Realising that this was no way to live, Rob visited his GP, who diagnosed him with spurs in his heels and prescribed cortisone injections. Unfortunately, the injections did not alleviate the pain.

It was at the Good Feet Store that Rob finally found a solution to his problem - he was fitted for arch supports!

To Rob's surprise, the arch supports not only provided support for his feet but also re-aligned his whole body. They were also incredibly easy to use, as they fit into every pair of shoes he owned. After three or four weeks of using the arch supports, Rob finally found relief. In two or three months, there was no pain whatsoever. This was a significant turning point for Rob.

The Good Feet Store's arch supports are designed to provide relief to people suffering from foot, knee, hip, and back pain. The arch supports are designed to support the arch of the foot, which helps to distribute body weight evenly across the foot, reducing pressure on the heel and ball of the foot.

In 2018, Rob took a trip to London and walked 27 thousand steps in a day. Still, there was no pain. He trekked around Ireland and Scotland, flew to Spain, and went all over Italy without experiencing any discomfort. After 11 weeks of travelling, Rob flew back home, and there was still no pain.

Rob is now back to playing golf, and his handicap has dropped. The arch supports not only alleviated his pain but also improved his overall well-being. Rob's journey highlights the importance of never giving up until you find the right solution.

The Good Feet Store offers a range of arch supports to cater to different foot types and conditions, including flat feet, high arches, plantar fasciitis, and bunions. The arch supports are custom-fitted to ensure that they provide maximum support and comfort.

Aside from the relief of pain, the arch supports provide several other benefits, such as improving balance and posture, reducing fatigue, and increasing overall comfort.
