At Happy Feet Pedorthics it could asked: what do we sell – the sausage or the sizzle, the shoes or the comfort. Actually we don’t think we sell anything! We assess and fit people for footwear and make a pedorthic recommendation, the shoes at times literally walk out the door and we receive payment for our work along the way for our quality service and product.
So when we look at these feet – they look pretty normal but why the walking stick?
The shoes the clinet came in with are the burgundy coloured ones with the material at the heel which does not tone in very well. This man has a condition called Essential Myoclonus. Myoclonus refers to a sudden, involuntary jerking of a muscle or group of muscles. A hiccup or a twitch – or in more severe cases a person’s ability to eat talk or walk can be affected. Essential Myoclonus is a form of Myoclonus.
Back to the sausage or the sizzle – the shoe or the comfort! For comfort – the difference was the SACH heel. Not a short angled cushioned heel – SACH heel like in the burgundy shoes, but an extended SACH heel like in the picture of the brown shoes. (The colours are in the pictures for explanation purposes only.)
Finally many people at Happy Feet Pedorthics say – Happy wife, happy life! And we know that there are many Happy Feet walking out the door of Happy Feet Pedorthics with modifications and repairs toning in with the original shoe!
