Welcome to week two of my Summer Foot Fun Series, where we look closely at the physiology of the feet in order to have a vibrant, pain-free summer. This week we're talking about a summer classic: flip flops.
Flip flops are so light and easy to slip on. However, after consistent use for long periods of time, you might start to notice some foot pain and discomfort. They're even the archenemy of some podiatrists who tell you to never wear them.
In this episode, I'm not telling you to throw away your flip flops, but I am here to suggest ways you can make your body more comfortable so you can recuperate from wearing flip flops for a period of time that might be too long for you. Discover the biomechanical happenings that can occur when you wear flip flops and how to remedy them.
