While in Las Vegas for a reunion, Larry Schneider learned about a unique arch support sold by Good Feet. An avid tennis player, Larry suffered from ankle pain that limited his time on the court and affected his day-to-day life. Having worn prescribed orthotics for many years, which only provided minimal relief; Larry was intrigued by the Good Feet product and gave them a try. Larry noticed a difference almost immediately and within just a few weeks of wearing the new arch supports was back on the courts and virtually pain free. Amazed at his results, he opened the first Central Valley Good Feet store in Fresno, California on March 1, 2001, in hopes of helping other people return to the lifestyles they once enjoyed. Stores in Visalia and Bakersfield followed in January 2003 and 2004, respectively.
Studies show that 75 percent of the population will experience foot health problems at some point in their lives and yet, more than half of Americans believe that foot pain is normal and that there is little that can be done to stop or prevent it. But, Good Feet customers now know the truth! Foot pain isn't normal and it can be minimized, even eliminated or prevented, by wearing Good Feet arch supports.
Doctors and researchers agree that people can experience discomfort in their feet, legs, hips and back due to foot problems. In fact, studies show that nearly 87 percent of the population suffers from a foot related problem, such shin splints, knee, leg and back pain. Many of these common everyday complaints are caused by wearing improper footwear, walking or standing on hard surfaces for long periods of time, being overweight or sports injuries.
The theory behind Good Feet arch supports is simple, if the over time the structure of the foot fails due to things such as physical activity, weight gain, pregnancy, etc, what's to stop it from being realigned back to a more natural position? Your body has a foundation, just has your home does ... sorts of structural problems. The same holds true for your feet. If your feet are not properly aligned and supported, the rest of your skeletal structure can become misaligned, causing strain on the ankles, knees, hips and back.
