I’m a Healthy Foot Practitioner, a Restorative Exercise Specialist™, am passionate about the workings of the feet, and someone who’s suffered with a LOT of foot pain…
Not so much as a child, but more so in my 20’s.
I’m a plantar fasciitis survivor and received some very poor advice about fixing this condition at the time (which is close to 10 years ago now).
If you’d like to give your children’s feet (and you as an adult!) the best chance at NOT getting dysfunction later on in life, watch this video.
I spell out the 3 basic attributes your children’s shoes (and yours!) should have for optimum function:
Our feet are our platform, so what we stick on our feet really affects what our knees, pelvis, lower back, the shoulder and even the neck do further on up the chain.
I deal with a lot of back pain, foot pain and pelvic floor dysfunction, and so many of the clients I rehabilitate have very poor foot mechanics.
I mention Vivobarefoot Shoes in this video as a barefoot shoe brand you may like to investigate.
If you care about the health and wellbeing of your children’s feet, and your own, feel free to use my discount code ‘RESTORATIVE25’ to receive 25% off (for which I receive no reward from Vivobarefoot themselves, I’m just happy to spread the word of happy feet).
Enjoy, and if you have any questions, do get in touch!
