Most of us enjoy shopping, but if you have an abnormal foot structure – a Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity – shopping for shoes is not only unfulfilling, but a frustrating nightmare. And even when you think you’ve found a pair that just might work, they usually end up in the closet along with all the rest of your uncomfortable shoes.
Following is a letter I received from a woman I’ll call Brenda. Brenda writes, “A while back I had a conversation with Helen (name changed) whom you treated last year, in which we discovered we both had boxes and boxes of new shoes stacked in our closets. Helen even sent me a photo of new shoe boxes stacked under her dining room window because she’d run out of room elsewhere.
Each of us had spent many years and a whole lot of money buying progressively more and more expensive shoes, trying to solve the problem of why we could never find a pair of shoes we could walk in comfortably.
We’d go to the shoe store, find a brand or style we hadn’t already tried, walk a few steps back and forth in the shoe store and think, “Well, maybe these will finally be the shoes I can walk in.” Out would come the credit card, and I’d wince as the clerk rang up $100, or more often, $200.
Back at home, I’d put the shoes on, wear them for half an hour, then take them off and put them back in the box. Another failure. More wasted money. More frustration. More wondering what on earth could be wrong with me that there wasn’t a single pair of shoes on earth that I could walk in without pain.
Never, in all that time, did anyone suggest to me that all those uncomfortable shoes in my closet were a prime indication that I had an abnormal foot structure.”
How An Abnormal Foot Structure Will Make Your Shoes Feel Uncomfortable
A common symptom of both the Rothbarts Foot and the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity is foot twist (abnormal pronation).
Because your feet twist as you stand and walk, they expand in both width and length. So when you you’re sitting, your shoes may feel comfortable, but when you stand or walk the expansion of your feet makes your shoes feel tight.
So if you’re having this problem of finding shoes that are comfortable, it’s a good indication that you may have one of these two abnormal foot structures.
A story with a happy ending: Brenda (the author of the letter above) has the abnormal foot structure, PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity. But after having completed Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, she now walks comfortably and lives pain free. If, like Brenda, you or someone you know is in chronic pain and has a closet filled with shoes they can’t wear, I urge you to learn more about the abnormal foot structures I discovered.
