Tired and Sore Feet
It happens to almost everyone. You get home at the end of the day and your feet are burning, sore, swollen and just plain tired. We all know the problem but what’s the solution? Lots of us try to find some kind-hearted soul willing to give a soothing, relaxing foot massage to get circulation back to normal in feet and lower legs.
How would you feel at the end of the day if you could enjoy the benefit of an all-day foot massage?
In some ways, we suffer from Civilization. Nature designed the human foot to work best when shoeless while walking in soft dirt. Loose soil reshapes instantaneously to transfer pressure from the point of impact to all the foot’s other muscles, tendons and ligaments. That constant reaction to pressure creates a natural massaging action as all those complex systems on the bottom of your feet work in close coordination to allow you to maintain balance.
Thorns and other sharp objects led to invention of the first shoes. Fast forward a few thousand years and notice how concrete surfaces make up today’s biggest barrier to the natural comfort that would come if all of us were still walking in soft dirt. Now most of us wear shoes to protect our feet from long hours on hard, unyielding and smooth floors. But that comes at a big cost: no more natural sharing of the burden of our weight over the entire foot. It makes sense that the parts doing more work than they were designed to handle become fatigued while the other parts suffer from under-use.
HappyFeet® set feet to doing their thing with all parts sharing the load. When you put your feet on a bed of pharmaceutical-grade glycerin that instantaneously reacts to pressure in just the same way soft dirt takes on the proper shapes for maximum comfort, you are taking a step in the right direction – a big step to avoiding “worker’s feet”. You won’t necessarily want to go dancing after a hard day on the job wearing HappyFeet but, on the other hand, you won’t be begging for relief from the pain and swelling you used to endure.
If you stand and walk for long hours at work, HappyFeet just might be the solution to those “end of the day” miseries. Plus, we offer a two-year warranty on all our insoles.
Simply put, your calf muscle, one of your strongest muscles, attaches to the Achilles Tendon. In turn, your Achilles tendon, the strongest of all your tendons, attaches to the back of the heel bone. The Plantar Fascia connects to the bottom of your heel bone and runs the length of your foot to hold everything together. These inter-connections operate together as a single unit in which your heel bone is the pivot point.
