If the Shoe Fits

85% of Americans are wearing the wrong size shoe according to the American College of Sports Medicine. Wearing the wrong size shoes could be the reason that you have pain at the end of the work day or even a work-out.

Some problems that shoes can cause include:

  • Wrong foot posture

  • Excessive rubbing

  • Formation of open wounds

  • Decreased performance

  • Leg muscle fatigue

  • Increased amount of Injuries

  • Feet Swelling

  • Faster progression of foot deformities

  • Toe Nails are bruised, thickened, or fall off

Often these foot fails can be fixed with proper footwear that is the proper size.

A Brannock Device, pictured above, is used to accurately measure feet. All clinical staff at Frederick Foot & Ankle have been trained in a four-point measuring system to put you in the best shoe possible. The four points of measuring include (1) heel to toe (2) heel to arch (3) width (4) semi-circumference. When ordering shoes staff keeps in mind orthotic devices, braces, and foot deformities. Once shoes are delivered to the office minor adjustments can be made to shoes and assistive devices to give you a more comfortable fit.

We are happy to measure your feet and provide our expert shoe opinion even for individuals that are not currently patients of Frederick Foot & Ankle.
