Any doctor will tell you than an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We wear our seat belts to protect ourselves and we eat our vegetables to take care of our bodies. There are many ways that we prevent hardship in our daily lives. This conventional wisdom holds true for our feet as well! Some may think that a little foot pain is okay or even normal but we are here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way! Our feet communicate with us, telling us when something is wrong. Pain is a signal from our feet to our brain that something isn’t right and it’s our job to listen!
Foot pain can be caused by many different issues but can most commonly be solved by wearing properly-fitted shoes with adequate support! Food pain from ill-fitting shoes is NOT normal and can lead to more serious problems down the road. The longer you wait to remedy the problem, the longer it will take to heal and, chances are, the more expensive the treatment will be. If you begin to develop corns or bunions or even plantar fasciitis, proper footwear can often correct the issue before it becomes serious. However, waiting until the problems become more acute means often a few doctor visits and more expensive foot support, in addition to longer healing time.
So, do yourself (and your feet) a huge favor. When you begin to notice regular foot pain, come down to Cobbler Bill’s and get on the road to good health! Listen to your feet! They will tell you what they need!
