Check out some of these recent testimonials…

“I was having knee problems, my Chiropractor suggested Foot Levelers and my pain is gone! Worth every dime and recently bought my daughter a set.” –Melissa Williams

“I have scoliosis and have been in pain for at least 30 years. I purchased the inserts and flip flops. The inserts can be used in all my shoes and the flip flops are worn 90% of the time in the summer. Foot levelers are heaven sent. They are invaluable in keeping my hips and spin in alignment and are worth every penny I’ve spent.” –Georgianna Lund

Wall Street Journal: Surgery Not Needed for Most Foot Problems

…Course, we already knew that. Foot problems can usually be treated without surgery! 

In “No Surgery: Fresh Cures for Common Foot Pain” by WSJ Health Reporter Angela Chen, the writer speaks with experts who say that most foot problems–from bunions to plantar fasciitis to hammertoes to ball of foot pain–can be treated successfully without surgery. “Some treatments, such as insoles that redistribute the pressure on the foot…aim to address the cause of the foot problems, which can help them from recurring,” writes Chen. (Hey! That’s what we’ve been saying all along!)

“‘I think people come in wanting surgery because they want a quick fix and want to be back to normal,’ says Norman Turner, an orthopedic surgeon at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. ‘Unfortunately, in most cases surgery isn’t a quick fix because it can take just as long, or longer, to get back on your feet.'”

“The knife” is not the answer–it’s costly, potentially dangerous, and could have you down for months. Got foot problems? Read the full piece here, then read what a difference custom orthotics make, and find a health professional near you who can help.

What Custom Orthotics Did for Heather’s Plantar Fasciitis

We love to hear from folks who have gotten better, faster, stronger, more pain-free-er using our custom orthotics.  Here’s what Heather from Maple Grove, Minnesota shared with us last week:

“For years I suffered on and off with plantar fasciitis. Last fall it was so severe that I had to stop exercising because I was in so much pain. People told me to try custom orthotics, but I never did because I didn’t think they would help me. Heather BlumerI finally tried over-the-counter orthotics but they didn’t help at all. After suffering for so many years, I finally decided I would try custom orthotics by Foot Levelers. Wow! What a difference they have made! I no longer wake up in the morning with heel pain. I can go running once again! I’ve also used the FootWheel which has been a tremendous help! The combination of the custom orthotics and the FootWheel have made such a difference in my life!”
