As I was looking around the internet for something to write about I decided to go to the main Aetrex website to do a little reading about the company. Lynco orthotics is a subdivision of Aetrex in case you are unfamiliar with the company. They have a quote by Socrates on their website and it reads as follows: “When our feet hurt, we hurt all over.” Pretty profound. I must say, I completely agree. The last time my feet hurt I couldn’t think about anything else except that fact that my feet were killing me which made me feel horrible in general. Each step I took would make me feel slightly worse until I could barely stand on my sore feet. It was miserable! These experiences have really shown me how important it is to take care of my feet as you should yours.
Foot pain radiates through the entire body affecting other areas of your body and can also alter your personality and state of mind. You are less likely to engage in any activities you normally would because you know how bad the pain feels or will feel. Foot pain can also physically harm other parts of your body because you may walk differently or favor one side more than the other. This could lead to other parts of the body becoming sore or hurt such as your legs or back. Essentially, the foot pain can lead to other pains in the body that are unnecessary.
It is unfortunate, but true. This is why it is important to treat your symptoms and prevent your feet from going through the same pain and torture. There are a variety of products out there such as orthotics that can help prevent foot pain from occurring.
