Health Benefits of Shoe Repair
Shoe repair eases the burden on the environment by keeping the shoes in service for years instead of going to the landfill. According to a congressional report, you create a natural, custom fit when you continually wear a pair of shoes.
This natural, custom fit helps to distribute your body weight evenly, which can help to improve your posture, make you feel more comfortable, and it also contributes to your overall health.
Repairing your shoes allows you to keep this comfortable custom fit while making your shoes look nice and rejuvenated.
Repairing your shoes can also help alleviate a variety of physical problems.
Also, an improper fitting pair of shoes can cause calluses, corns and bunions.
Our shoe repair shops offer shoe stretching services and fitting aids to alleviate those problems.
Worn out soles and heels will change your gait and when you are not walking properly, your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back can start to feel that stress. Walking on worn shoes can put stress on your spine, which in turn, puts extra stress on your feet, ankles, knees and hips.
If you throw your spine out of alignment by wearing poor-fitting shoes, you will likely end up visiting a foot doctor, physical therapist, and or chiropractor.
The cost of visiting any of these professionals with physical therapy, medication and possible long term corrective medical devices will undoubtedly cost you far more than getting your shoes repaired.
