This letter is to thank you for sharing such wonderful educational information regarding foot care. In September of 2014 I injured by inner right knee by jumping. I’d read somewhere that jumping in place a few time per week should help to build bone in those with osteoporosis. My age is 68. From that time in September 2014, I was barely able to walk due to the pain, swelling, and stiffness of the knee. I began using a four prong cane. My Podiatrist suggested by April 2015 that I see a knee surgeon as my walking had become ever more difficult. The knee continued to be painful and swollen in spite of cold compress applications, knee wraps, and elevation of the leg. For about seven years prior to the injury, I’d worn very hard custom made orthotics that never stayed in place in my shoes. In addition to those orthotics, in the latter years (about four years ago), I wore New Balance hiking shoes for their firmness and stability. I’d been told years ago that I am flat footed and an over pronator. Additionally, I have bunions, most prominent on the right foot.
Instead of seeing a knee surgeon, I went on the Internet and aimlessly did some research. The research was aimless because I wasn’t sure of what I was looking for. I chose to research foot problem sites rather than knee sites because the knee problem happened when my inner right foot struck the hard orthotics as I came down from the jump. I happened on various Youtube videos during my research. Your videos and website were intriguing. Your information proved to be an absolute blessing for me. It may sound like an exaggeration but as soon as I ceased wearing the hiking shoe and motion shoe and began wearing the Lems Primal 2 in latter May 2015, the pain went away and I am able to walk without knee pain. I’m no longer using the cane. A few weeks ago I began wearing the Correct Toes. Though my knee has some residual stiffness, it has just about healed. Your program seems miraculous. My knee and feet are in much better condition now. There is no knee surgery in my future.
Thank you so much again for sharing this on your website and youtube.
