Arch Supports For Foot, Back, Knee & Joint Pain
Most people believe that pain is a symptom of aging. Instead of reaching for a long term solution, they find relief in aspirin and learn to live with the pain. Arch supports are a natural solution because getting 'older' doesn't have to hurt.

Walking on natural surfaces provides step-shock absorption, that's why you can see your footprint when you walk on sand. Due to modernization of society, we wear shoes and walk on cement and concrete floors. This type of unnatural surface does not have step-shock absorption or natural 'cushioning' like sand or soft surfaces, so your body absorbs step shock due to weightbearing pressure.
If you walk on cement with shoes that don't provide proper arch support, and 3 times your body weight is stepping down on your feet at each step, well, do the math. If you weigh 150 lbs., then 450 lbs. of pressure is on your feet at each step. After walking a few blocks, it's no doubt your feet hurt.
One thing you need to keep in mind is that you do NOT have to live with the pain. Body pain is not a natural part of the aging process. Foot, ankle, knee, joint and back pain does not have to become a burden to your walking fitness. It's as simple as removing foot pain by inserting arch supports into your shoes. Arch supports will place your foot into the correct position, realign your skeletal system and voila, the weightbearing pressure that was causing pain can be corrected!
Arch supports can be found in many specialty stores around the world. Most of these stores will take a footprint of your foot and demonstrate a visual balance test. The footprint will clearly show you 'dark areas' that represent weightbearing pressure and where your body is compensating for pain while you walk. Brick and mortar retail stores charge 3 to 5 times more for arch supports (compared to the walking store at www.walk2bfit.com ) simply because retail stores have to cover their costs - and let's face it, most people will pay an arm and a leg to get rid of pain.
At http://www.walk2bfit.com we've found a way to make arch supports affordable to you online (the same products are sold by doctors, physical therapists and foot specialists around the world). Our Hants White arch supports are measured against a proprietary formula used from the brannock foot measurement system. So, we can actually size your arch supports from your shoe size!
A few of our customers may not have a perfect fit, in that case we send them a footprint kit and take custom measurements and guarantee fit! Our cost $69.99 with a guaranteed fit and a lifetime warranty. In store retail price $199.00 --- a savings of $130.00!
When you're on your next walk and your feet hurt, don't settle for the pain, get arch supports and see for yourself.
