Foot Solutions Fan Celebrates 60 by Trekking the Alps
A diagnosis of ovarian cancer followed by two major surgeries and 18 weeks of chemotherapy might have been enough to stop the most avid hiker from undertaking a trek through the Alps.
Not so for 60-year-old Jan C. Just a year after the diagnosis and after she had developed neuropathy, a side effect of chemotherapy that led to numbness and tingling in her feet, Jan hiked seven to nine hours a day fulfilling her dream of taking in the awe-inspiring sights of one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
After reading an article about Foot Solutions, Jan entrusted the fit experts to find a solution to the problem that would enable her to complete the journey of a lifetime. Jan purchased Foot Solutions’ custom-fitted, custom-crafted orthotics that were express shipped to her in time for the trip, but with no time for the usual break in period.
“It was not a walk in the park, but I was able to enjoy it so much more because my feet were happy. My friends and family were amazed that I had just bought orthotics for the trip. Even though I was using them for the first time, which is not recommended, they worked out so well! Foot Solutions has a great, friendly and approachable staff that know and understand feet and your products.”

Keeping Your Feet Healthy
Your feet are the foundation for your entire body and bear all of your body weight. You walk on them. You run on them. You stand on them. If your feet are not aligned properly, the rest of your body will be out of alignment as well.
Ordinary Flip Flops And Pain
Wearing ordinary flip-flops, particularly for prolonged periods of time, can lead to a variety of foot conditions ranging from plantar fasciitis to Achilles tendonitis. Even worse, flip-flops can have potentially long term effects on your musculo skeletal system.
