When we recently asked Serena Ferrick to tell us about her experience at Foot Solutions, this is what she had to say:

I went into Foot Solutions in Stillorgan Village because I needed help with continuous pain in my feet. I am a pharmacist so, as you can imagine, I am on my feet all day!! At the end of each day the soles of my feet would be burning and very painful. To keep fit, I also do a lot of walking (up to 1.5 hours per evening) so after a long day at the Pharmacy that would cause even more pain in my feet.

Blanaid at Foot Solutions listened very carefully to all of my foot problems, recorded my lifestyle and history and then used very high tech scanning machines to identify what was causing the problems. She recommended that I wear Customised Arch Supports in comfortable footwear and I can honestly say, this has changed my life!

Up until my visit to Foot Solutions I had been wearing pump style shoes, believing that because they were flat they would help my foot pain. But Blanaid pointed out that there wasn’t enough support in these types of shoes and she introduced me to their stylish range of ’Ziera’ shoes. For the first time in my life I found a stylish pair of flat, supportive shoes which look terrific with my work clothes. Most importantly they accommodate my much needed Customised Arch Supports and thanks to this combination my feet are pain free at the end of each day. My colleagues in the Pharmacy will be running into Foot Solutions for similar help!

Before going walking, I simply slip the Customised Arch Supports out of my work shoes and put them into my walking shoes. This ensures that I have the support I need while ‘pounding’ the pavements each evening.

The BEST NEWS is that before I visited Foot Solutions I had been having intermittent treatment to help with back and shoulder pain. Now, because the Customised Arch Supports have aligned by body, taking stress off these areas, my back and shoulder pain is entirely gone!! Fantastic!

Thank you so much Foot Solutions – I would strongly recommend people who are on their feet all day, like I am, to pay a visit to your nearest Foot Solutions store.
