The feet are the final barriers between the body and walking surfaces. If the feet struggle to maintain a proper alignment, they will transfer pain into other areas of the body. This pain is most often felt not only in the feet, but in the ankle, knee and hip joints as well as the lower back. How the feet work can affect nearly every muscular and skeletal part of the body. If you’ve noticed pain in your feet or lower body as a result of walking, it might be time for a consultation with a shoe-fitting specialist. A professional foot analysis can help you to determine the optimal shoe type for long-term pain relief.
The Active Foot Store combines all the benefits of a comfort shoe store, diabetic shoe store, and orthotic specialist service. Under the supervision of Dr. Jack Reingold, our experienced pedorthists and shoe fitters work tirelessly to match clients with shoes that provide relief for foot, ankle, and lower back pain, and we have access to the widest selection of comfort footwear in California.
Much of the pain associated with abnormal foot features comes from wearing standard shoe designs. Conventional footwear providers use numeric shoe sizes as a universal metric for fit, but we know that achieving the perfect fit is about much more than size. It’s about finding the ideal width, shape, and support for each individual. That’s why it’s so important to work with experienced shoe-fitting specialists who can learn about your unique conditions, needs, and lifestyle, and equip you with footwear that truly feels custom-made.
