I love my shoes! However, after many years on my feet, I have become much more discerning about the type of shoes I wear. My shoes not only have to look good but feel good. Gone are the days when I can squeeze my feet into a fancy pair of heels and not have very sore feet the next day.
As a runner, I have experienced plantar fasciitis, a painful overload injury involving the thick fibrous tissue which runs from the heel to the sole of the foot.
Diagnosing my own feet problems and working out the best treatment approach is what got me interested in lower limb biomechanics, one of many musculoskeletal physiotherapy sub-specialities.
