Solution to pain may be at your feet


Can’t shed those last 10 lbs. because your feet hurt?

And if you suffer from hip, knee or back pain, a little TLC to your FEET may be your solution as well.

Foot Solutions’ mission is to get people up and active again. Foot Solutions is unique because it’s a one-stop solution to a wide variety of foot problems and it is staffed by pedorthists who have completed courses in foot pathology, physiology, biomechanics and the art and science of shoe fitting.

They use state-of-the-art digital foot scanning technology to analyze and fit each customer to their specific footcare needs. They spend an average of 45 minutes with each person to ensure they’re in the properly designed shoe or custom product, and the analysis is all done free as part of their service.

“We meet so many people who want to live active, healthy lives, but have given up because of pain.” said owner John Cain. “This can lead to weight-gain and other health issues … it’s a vicious cycle. Our motto is when your feet feel good, you’ll feel good and perform at your best. We’ve gotten countless hugs from people who have finally found relief for the first time in 20 years ... literal tears of joy in their eyes.”

“There’s no need to sacrifice style for comfort,” said Naperville manager Debbie Weinstein. “We carry a wide selection of footwear that includes athletic, dress, casual, walking and work shoes. If we don’t have what you need in stock, we’ll fit you on the spot and order what you need.”

“When people come in, they can expect to see a fresh new look, many new styles, plus the

latest technology in walking footwear, but they’ll also find old favorites, like Finn Comfort. Most important, they’ll find smiling faces and a staff ready to help them get healthy without the pain.”
