I grew up with a tough father who did not believe in doctor visits nor medicine. If something hurt, he would tell you to drink some water, run, or rub some dirt on it. I suppose his words have truly resonated with me throughout the years, because even now as an adult, I try to ignore any pain.
I have been working here at Heartland Foot and Ankle Associates for almost a month and have learned so much! We have so many products that not only help heal pain but also help your feet long-term. Luckily, I have never broken any bones, but have always been an active athlete. I have sprained my ankle, stepped on nails, and dropped heavy boxes on my toes from time to time. After years of ignoring my heel pain, I have decided to take some initiative! Allow me to tell you about one of our amazing, life changing products I discovered here at HFAA.
With summer here, sandal season is in full effect! Let me be honest, I love buying sandals and I am a complete girly-girl when it comes to painting my toenails. However, I am so sick of buying flip-flops that do just that –FLIP FLOP! My poor feet have zero support and as a result ache by the end of the day.
I have finally found the solution! Here at the office, we sell Sandalistas! Sandalistas are sandals that mold into the shape of your feet for comfort. Diana, our Head Medical Assistant says it best, “Birkenstocks take up to 6 months to mold into your feet, where as Sandalistas mold within minutes!”
Sandalistas have mosaic technology that allow you to alter the support specifically for your feet. Also, there are a variety of colors and styles to suit your taste. These sandals are great for both the busy soccer mom and the fashionista college student! I can finally have both cute and comfortable sandals.
