PODIATRIST STATES THAT FLIP-FLOPS RESPONSIBLE FOR FOOT, HIP AND BACK PAIN

 
Podiatrist, Dr. Lori Steiner states, "they were once the lowly 99-cent beach sandal at the corner drug store. But today, flip-flops have been elevated to a fashion mainstay for millions of wearers. While they are fun and cheap, they also can be a pain — literally.  I see a lot of patients complaining of foot pain from wearing flip-flops constantly.  They suffer from overuse injuries of the foot, causing pain that extends from the heel and arch, and often all the way to the back and hip. And I’m certainly not alone on this; the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons blame regular wearing of flip-flops for an increase in heel pain in patients 15 to 25 years old, a group that normally doesn’t have this issue."
 
The Foot Specialists at Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics only recommends Flip-Flops when around the beach and pool or in communal showers only  If you are doing any amount of walking make sure that you always wear appropriate footwear.  If you or a loved one requires honest, competent advice or quality foot care and custom orthotics, please do not hesitate to contact us at 416-465-8737.
