Recruitment manager Andrea Mahn had so much foot pain she could barely walk.

This fit and active 40-year-old had been suffering from Plantar Fasciitis – a painful inflammation of the tissue on the sole of the foot.

“I was treated by an osteopath, a physiotherapist and a sports therapist but nothing really eased the pain,” explained Andrea.

As her job involves a lot of standing and walking, life was becoming unbearable. She was also unable to partake in her favourite hobby, running.

Then Andrea saw an advert for Foot Solutions and decided to pay them a visit. “I turned up hoping that someone would be able to help me,” she said. “and it was the best decision I have ever made.

“The staff were knowledgeable, helpful and attentive and after half an hour of tests and examinations they found a solution. It was the most fantastic service I could have imagined.”

Foot Solutions provided Andrea with custom shoe inserts and a special device to help stretch her feet at night.

“The device gave me immediate relief from the pain, allowing me to sleep better and when the inserts were fitted in my shoes they made a huge difference.”

“I had faced the prospect of never being able to wear high heels – but I can now wear them for up to 14 hours if necessary.”

“I don’t suffer at all now. I can do my job and go running without constant pain. I will never buy shoes anywhere else again.”
