Are you a woman that loves to wear nice shoes? Do you find your footwear options are limited? Have you had foot pain and tried orthotics and are frustrated because they only fit into your runners? Make sure you watch this video because I’m going to give you our top tips to being pain-free in the shoes you love.

The problem is that traditional treatments for foot pain generally involve orthotics which don’t address the underlying cause, aren’t corrective long-term, and don’t fit into any shoes that are stylish. At Alternative Foot Solutions we specialize in foot mobilization therapy that addresses the underlying cause intrinsically without relying on the device so the change is seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Not to mention, you can where the shoes you love. Let’s discuss how we can get you into the shoes you love pain-free. Make sure you watch the whole video, because the most important tip is at the end.

Top tip number one is the tennis ball exercise. This exercise will help to loosen the joints of your feet and remove restrictions that have occurred the day before. This will help the natural lubricant of your joints flow through the relevant areas and stimulates blood flow in the area. Sit on the edge of a chair with the tennis ball underneath your toes. Roll the tennis ball for your toes to your heel, applying as much pressure as you can tolerate. Do this for 60 seconds. Then roll the ball around in small circles on your forefoot from your toes to underneath the ball of your foot. Now roll the ball around in small circles on your architect. Then roll the ball around in small circles around your heal. Roll the ball around on each of the three sections of your foot for 20 seconds. Repeat the above process on the other foot. You should do this exercise morning and night for three weeks.

Top tip number two is the toe crunches. This exercise is called a toe crunch. Stand with your feet hip width apart. Roll your ankles out so that your weight is on the outside of your foot and your big toe is off the ground. Curl your toes like you’re making a fist with them. Hold for three seconds. Do ten times; do it once a day. Both of these exercises are good to do in the shower or while you’re cleaning your teeth.

Due to the fact that we specialize in foot mobilization therapy, we can correct the underlying issues intrinsically without having to rely on a device such as an orthotic. The advantage of this is that women have options when it comes to footwear. Our patients can wear anything from ballet flats to heels. The great thing about this treatment is that we don’t have to limit activity or footwear. In fact, we are acutely aware that people come to see us so that they don’t have any limits placed on either.

Top tip number three is to get assessed to see if Alternative Foot Solutions can help you. It is essential that you find the underlying cause of your problem. Without doing so, everything else will be a band-aid approach and the problem will return. With 12 years experience at Alternative Foot Solutions, we are very proud of our record of finding the true underlying cause. We are the only practice in New South Wales to use weight-bearing x-rays to diagnose the cause of the problems, and the only practice to specialize in foot mobilization therapy in New South Wales. We specialize in helping fashion-conscious women get out of orthotics and treat the underlying cause. Our treatments consistently achieve results so that you no longer need orthotics, and can remain active and avoid surgery.

We have a special offer to anyone who wants to where the shoes they love. For the next month you can get a free assessment with one of our practitioners with a hundred dollars at no charge. This offer is valid for one month, and only valid to the first 20 people to book. To find out more, please call the clinic on 8966-9300, or email us on info@alternativefootsolutions.com.au.
