Do you have flat feet? Do you know how to tell if you do?
You're not alone - almost 75% of people in the United States
will suffer from foot pain at some point in their life.
Your feet are a sensory organ just as much as your hands and
eyes are. And while flat feet or fallen arches may feel like a
permanent sentence - they're not.
I've been the person with custom orthotics and thick cushioned
shoes. And I'm now the person who prefers barefoot and can go all
day in minimalist shoes.
And while the difference between the two might feel like an
impossible leap for you right now, I promise you that it's not.
So whether you have any number of foot ailments like plantar
fasciitis, flat feet, heel pain, tendinopathy, or more (or you just
want to prevent them), today's episode is for you!
