A problem in the base impacts the very top of the structure. Think of a child building a block tower. He or she stacks blocks, then tries to remove one small block from the bottom. Even if the tower doesn’t immediately fall down, it will become unstable and collapse with the slightest draft or tremor in the floor. Just like an unstable foundation impacts the top of a block tower, problems in your feet reach all the way up your body and affect your knees, hips, and back. Footwear can make a difference—which is why Podiatry Associates, Inc. recommends Vionic shoes with Orthaheel sandals.
Shoes Designed with Support in Mind
Footwear is meant to support your feet, not the other way around. It’s supposed to help your lower limbs absorb shock, protect them from sharp objects, and keep your feet stable and functioning well when you walk. Unfortunately, many shoes aren’t very helpful in any of these areas. This might not be a big problem for most people. For anyone with flat feet or high arches, however, unsupportive footwear is an issue. Your feet need something to help them appropriately absorb impacts and distribute pressure throughout your foot structure evenly.
Vionic shoes are made with this understanding in mind. The Orthaheel technology the company developed is a podiatrist-designed inside that is made to transform an otherwise normal pair of shoes or sandals into a supportive style that helps stabilize your lower limbs. Deep heel cups offer more stability than ordinary footwear. The orthotic-like arch support accommodates and helps your natural arch.
Why We Recommend Them
This is an opportunity to find fun, fashionable shoes that actually provide the support you need. Most people dislike wearing podiatry shoe brands, since they can be large and clunky-looking in order to accommodate most lower limb needs. Vionic shoes with Orthaheel technology break that trend. These shoes match modern styles without looking large and awkward. More importantly, Vionic shoes are the only styles that have earned the American Podiatric Medicine Association (APMA) seal of acceptance.
Orthaheel sandals also provide an opportunity for you to wear comfortable, open-toed shoes without suffering. Because the sandals are made with the Orthaheel technology, your feet will still benefit from the podiatrist-designed interior. No need to worry that you’ll end up with hip or back pain when you show off your toes.
That is why we now offer Vionic footwear in our Wellness & Shoe Center. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to obtain shoes that will relieve your arch pain and help you enjoy your active lifestyle again.
