I have been pain free about 1 yr. now thanks to Birkenstock (Arizona style) shoes. With all the info from all the different people posting to this site about how much they have been helped by these shoes, I wish more people would really give them a try.
I know from experience that if you wear 100% for 3 mths. birks will get you the most improvement you have ever seen and if you take the glucosamine and calicium/mag. while you do this for the 3 mths. you, too, can get to pain free. Good luck to everyone!
