Question for Richard

Posted by Mary Y on 4/04/03 at 03:06 (115371)

Hi Richard,

I have tts and was told by my podiatrist to not wear birkenstock sandals. He said that there is no ankle support. I suffer from ankle and arch pain. But, many tts suffers have found them to be helpful. I do not know what to make of his statement. I am interested to hear what you have to say on this.

Thanks very much.

Hi Mary..
Your doc knows more about your foot and ankle than I do. He/she must want you to have extra ankle control via a rigid heel counter. I know someone here will have advice on how the Birks help them. Also..it can't hurt to ask your doc why he/she said that.
