About Me

I wear sensible shoes

I used to love wearing heels all the time, and then I started getting terrible foot pain all the time. I visited my podiatrist, and she showed me how much damage I was doing to my feet. She showed me how much better my feet would be able to react if I wore shoes with proper arch support and convinced me to try some sensible shoes. It made such a difference. My boyfriend says I'm a whole new person - a new person who doesn't complain about her aching feet all day long. Now I proudly wear sensible shoes and enjoy my life!

Can You Get Shin Splints From Walking?

Shin splints are painful and preventable, and runners — the people who tend to get these, according to popular belief — take steps daily to avoid letting the condition develop. But running isn't the only way you can end up with shin splints. Any motion that results in your feet hitting the ground can lead to shin splints even if you don't run. This can be very annoying if you're sidelined from the sport because you didn't realize you were susceptible to shin splints.
