 Foot Pain  

Your foot is the first point of load transfer up to your knee and from there to the hip and lower back / spine. Your foot has four layers of muscles and many joints and ligaments, which are all designed to move (flex / extend) when we walk, run or sprint. However, the vast majority of shoes have a largely rigid sole and a raised heel resulting in poor foot mechanics which can cause pain directly at your foot or further up the chain at your knee, hip or spine.

We are technically designed to not wear anything on our feet, however foot coverings have been developed to protect our feet from sharp objects and harsh conditions such as extreme heat and cold. When muscles and joints are not allowed to move through their normal range of motion (ROM) the muscles shorten (get tight) and the joints become immobile (stiffen).

Since wearing leguanos patients have found their gait (walking) pattern has improved as their feet can now work correctly as it was designed. Patients report feeling like they are gliding or more efficiently walking. They do take some time to get used to as your muscles and joints will not be used to working correctly so it’s suggested to wean into them and use a smooth massage ball to help relieve any aching in the sole of your foot. This is normal as your muscle and joints are adjusting so persist as “persistence pays off”.

Please note that if you have highly deformed feet these shoes may not be for you, but you won’t know until you try them.
