It is not normal to have to do one’s supermarket shopping in bare feet to feel safe. Yet this is what our client has done for some time!
After suffering a brain aneurysm the reality for a client at Happy Feet Pedorthics, has been a huge change in her feet and body. These changes have in turn affected the person’s ability to exercise, control her weight, and live in the way she knows she once did. It was not a head ache. Accepted as a workplace accident and having gone to arbitration with a huge expectation of the physiotherapist, the cost of providing orthopaedic or pedorthic footwear was accepted. Physiotherapy sessions had to be cancelled because the mutual client did not have appropriate footwear to undertake her exercise program.
Having received the approval, the client was so elated to be on the pathway to wearing shoes and having happy feet. The client now has the opportunity of shoes for shopping, to attend a meeting, to wear walking, and even the opportunity of colour to wear with the more outrageous party gear!
