It is important to fit the foot properly!
Both feet and shoes come in different shapes and sizes. Make sure that you are getting properly fitted for the shoes you need.
The foot is a very complex part of our body. It consists of 38 bones connected by ligaments, tendons and muscles. Because the feet carry our entire bodies weight, they are prone to many stresses. These stresses are what cause foot pain or inflammation. When your feet become injured, it can change your gait and therefor put undo stress on your ankles, knees, hip and back. If you are having foot problems, you probably can relate those problems to the shoes that you are wearing. A large number of people do not wear proper fitting shoes, and this can cause foot pain. Having the correct style and size for you can prevent the onset of foot problems and skin irritations. Finding shoes with a solid platform, strong heel counter, and proper arch curve, will help to keep your feet healthy.
At Kuebler Shoes, we strive to find the perfect shoe for each individual that means our standards for fit, feel, function and fashion. When looking for shoes, here are a few tips to follow:
At Kuebler Shoes, we want to find the absolute best shoe for your specific needs. If we do not have the style or size that you require in stock, we will gladly order for you at no additional cost.
Foot Problems = Back Problems?
Did you know that many adults under the age of 45 suffer from back pain? Studies show that 80% of adults will experience some form of back pain in their lifetime. Symptoms of back pain can be a result of poor muscle tone, muscle tension or spasms, ligament tears, degenerative arthritis and nerve or disc problems. Factors such as age, occupation, poor posture, and overall fitness can play a role in back pain. The body needs a sound structure to support the weight it carries. When this structure is compromised, the body has to work harder to keep the feet, ankles, knees, hip, and back in proper alignment. This misalignment over time can lead to back problems.
Your feet are the foundation of your body. They are the bodies shock absorbers, balancing agents, and propulsive levers. When wearing shoes that do not support your feet, undo stress is placed on the ankles, knees, hip and back. When there is a problem with your feet( such as pronation or fallen arches), the rotation of the bones in your legs can become excessive- leading to increased stress on the lower back.
At Kuebler Shoes, we know that finding the proper shoes for your specific needs can go a long way in preventing or reducing lower back pain!
Reducing The Pain of Plantar Fasciitis!
One of the most common foot conditions diagnosed by doctors is plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the tissue of the plantar muscle on the bottom of the foot. The tissue is called the fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes and helps to create the arch of the foot. The term plantar fasciosis is used to describe a more degenerative situation within the plantar region. It has been reported that two million Americans a year develop plantar fasciitis. This condition can strike anyone. The pain is usually felt at the bottom of the foot under the heel area. The pain normally is the greatest when the individual first gets out of bed in the morning, and slightly lessons throughout the day.
Kuebler Shoes professionally trained staff is on hand to help you reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis. We know that there are three parts to conservative treatment of this inflammation. First, overall motion of the foot must be reduced. A shoe with a strong heel counter and wide platform, plus an addition of a supportive insert will work. Second, the heel area should be cushioned to reduce pain. Third, proper stretching of the foot and leg must be consistently administered to reduce tension.
If you know of anyone suffering from this condition, you can trust that we have the knowledge to address all of their needs.
