PODIATRIST OFFERS SHOE-BUYING ADVICE
posted: Jun 18, 2014.
Podiatrist, Dr. Paul Atlas states, "I'm never surprised when patients tell me that they wear fashionable shoes that are uncomfortable. They’re not alone. According to a 2010 survey conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association, over half of women experience foot pain, and two-thirds wish they felt more comfortable in shoes. The obvious solution – wear low heels – is not very popular with our patients. So my number one suggestion is to shop for shoes that are comfortable for your feet and to choose styles that don’t rub against or put pressure on your problem spots. If you can, also fit a cushioned insole under the ball of your foot to offer extra padding.”
