WEARING FLIP-FLOPS CAN LEAD TO A HOST OF PROBLEMS

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. JOHN GIURINI STATES, "IF YOU WEAR FLIP-FLOPS FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME, THE LACK OF SUPPORT CAN LEAD TO STRESS AND STRAIN ON JOINTS AND TENDONS. IF YOU HAVE A MECHANICALLY UNSOUND FOOT TO BEGIN WITH, WEARING FLIP-FLOPS CAN ACTUALLY LEAD TO A HOST OF LOWER EXTREMITY PROBLEMS, SUCH AS ARCH PAIN, HEEL PAIN, ANKLE PAIN, OR KNEE PAIN."

AT MY FOOT CLINIC WE ONLY SUGGEST THAT PATIENTS WEAR FLIP-FLOPS AROUND THE POOL, COMMUNAL SHOWERS OR THE BEACH.  ALSO THERE ARE NOW FLIP-FLOPS THAT HAVE A SIGNIFICANT DEGREE OF SUPPORT AND YOU CAN ALSO ORDER ORTHOTIC FLIP-FLOPS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
