Hydrofeet® Helps People with Foot Problems



My family is prone to common foot problems. I am not ashamed. Seventy-five percent (75%) of Americans are expected to experience a common foot problem in their lifetime. I got that report from the Illinois Podiatric Medical Association so it must be true.

My father has bunions. My mother has high arches; my husband has Achilles tendonitis; while his father has peripheral neuropathy.

I didn’t develop bunions, but I have plantar fasciitis. Thanks to Hydrofeet® feet insoles for plantar fasciitis, my husband’s Achilles tendonitis and my plantar fasciitis stopped progressing. They are now manageable. Hydrofeet® helps us function normally. We can still do long walks, and travel a lot.

I know your family is not as different. If 75% of American’s would have a foot problem in their lifetime, then a family of four would have three members having a foot problem.

One of the most common foot problems is plantar fasciitis. People with plantar fasciitis experience pain at the base of their feet, most especially when they take their first step in the morning. For mild cases of plantar fasciitis, doctors recommend wearing foot splint at night, and shoe inserts during the day.

In worse cases, a person could take pain medications, do plantar stretching and other foot massage, get corticosteroid injections, extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or worse, surgery.

Just like me, you could avoid having those expensive treatments by stopping the progress of plantar fasciitis and other common foot problems, just like what the rest of my family and I did – by wearing Hydrofeet® shoe inserts regularly.

Hydrofeet® is a therapeutic massage insole made of vegetable-based glycerin and medical grade thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). The TPU makes these shoe insoles dynamic, durable, and strong. The glycerin inside massages my feet as I walk.

I know you love your family and you don’t want to see them in pain. Why don’t you show them some love this coming Christmas, and give each of them a pair of Hydrofeet® feet insoles?
