I know as a mom of two young children I’m always moving, usually with C on my hip. Every evening it’s wonderful to fall back into bed and let my often aching back and tired feet get some rest. I got the chance to review Dr. Scholl’s Pain Relief Orthotics and was very curious to see what kind of difference I would see from using them.
I have to admit I’d always thought of the shoe inserts as something for older people, not something I’d need. Well, I can honestly say that I am a convert now. I tried the Back Pain Relief orthotics and wore them in my Converse. I love those shoes but the soles are pretty much completely flat with no support whatsoever. The Dr. Scholl’s inserts solved that problem – they cushioned my entire foot, and provided the perfect amount of support for my arches. After wearing the shoes with inserts all day, my feet felt perfectly fine, which is usually not the case when I wear Chuck Taylors. The inserts are trimmable, so you can easily cut them to fit perfectly in your shoe. There are several different types of insoles available:
- Arch Pain Relief
- Arthritis Pain Relief
- Back Pain Relief
- Heel Pain Relief
- Knee Pain Relief
September is Pain Awareness Month – did you know that 80% of Americans suffer from some degree of lower body pain? Dr. Scholl’s wants to help raise awareness about pain, treatment options, and Dr. Scholl’s products that can help. They’ve recently launched a new Facebook Page with lots of information, and a $3 coupon for their line of orthotics – you all know how much I looove coupons!
If you have lower body pain, I’d recommend giving Dr. Scholl’s Pain Relief Orthotics a try. At around $15-$20 a pair they’re much cheaper than specialized shoes and are probably even less expensive than a copay to your doctor’s office. With the $3 coupon they’re even cheaper, too!
Note: Dr. Scholl’s provided me with orthotics inserts to review, but my opinions remain honest and unaffected, and are my own. I was not compensated monetarily for this review.
