Shoe Store in Goodyear Arizona for Foot Problems


So Patti, my friend says that I need to go
to Foot Solutions to help my aching feet feel better. Why would she send me here? Well a
lot of people come to Foot Solutions because we are Pedorthists, Art is a certified Pedorthist,
and I am a Pedorthist. What we do, we are like a Pharmacy for the Doctors. We can help,
we do not diagnose, but what we do is, you can tell us some of the issues that you have,
and we are versed on all of that. Including Plantar Fasciitis, achilles problems, shin
splints, metatarsalgia, hammer toes, bunions, we know all about those issues. And what we
can do is help you with the proper support to get you in balance to help accomodate those
problems and put you in the proper shoes for that foot type. So are you Doctors? No, we
are not Doctors, we’re a Pharmacy for a lot of Doctors per se, We work with physical therapists,
chiropractors, orthopedic, chronologist, endochronologists, MD’s and DPM’s. We work with all the Doctors
out there that work with the human body skeletal. So what we do is they send patients to us
also, with a script, and if you have a script you’ll save tax. But the Doctors will send
you here for shoes and some do send for orthotics and for shoes. A lot of the Doctor’s that
do Orthotic’s, we just accommodate them just with shoes. What we do, is we make custom
arch supports and shoes for people who have different problems with their feet. So what
is a pedorthist expert versus a certified Pedorthist? Ok. I said Art is a certified
Pedorthists, because he took the exam, the State Board, and he has a certificate. A Pedorthists,
I studied, but I just haven’t taken the exam. So, you’ve already had your schooling? I had
all the testing, yes and all the studies, but the only thing I lacked is that I didn’t
take the exam. Ok, and what’s involved with the foot gait and balance assessment and what
does it cost me? It’s a free evaluation. What you do, is you come in and we look at your
foot type, how you stand and we have you walk to watch how your feet make contact with the
ground so we can see how your body functions. And then we can put you in the proper footwear.
So, once you’ve done that test, what does it tell me? You will know whether you pronate
or supponate, you will know if you need a a nuetral shoe or a postage shoe and also
if you need any type of support system to help accommodate. I’ve heard people talk about
overpronation, what is that? Over pronation is when the foot drops medially and the nervicualar
bone has dropped, the ankle is tilted medially and the calcanus is tilted outward. So what
that does is it affects the knees, the hips and the back. So you really need some type
of support or a postage shoe to go with that foot type. What is plantar fasciitis? Plantar
Fasciitis is a pain that can occur on the bottom of the foot, whether its on the heel
or on the arch. It can hurt on the dorsal, which is the top of the foot or the rear foot.
But the fasciia is longest, strongest ligament in the foot and it runs through the foot like
that, it’s connected to the large bone which is the calcanus and sometimes it can be waking,
it could be over exercising, even an improper shoe can cause this. A lot of people who are
on ladders, or a lot of athletes get plantar fasciitis. So what you need to do with that,
you need to support the fasciia, because we can’t stay off our feet long enough for that,
So if we put support under the arch, we use the ice, and no bare feet and stretch.
