Dr Scholls to the rescue?

Getting older sucks.

As I age, I’m finding that the creaks and pops and crunches are getting more and more frequent. I make the “old man noise” when I bend over. And getting up is a slower process.

Lately I’ve been dealing with lower back issues. I think it’s mostly brought on by shoes without adequate support. So after a day of work my lower back is really sore and walking becomes difficult. It even makes my hamstrings tight and I end up with bad headaches.

Cue the Dr Scholls.

I keep seeing these ads for the Dr Scholls custom orthotics, and I’ve always thought that maybe I should give them a try. Especially with my jacked up arches.

But these magic kiosks are hard to find. They’re only in certain places– like Walmart.

So I went to Walmart.

And I got me a pair.

I tried them at the gym yesterday and my back felt pretty good. Today I’m using them at work (and doing my lunchtime walk).

At midday, things feel pretty decent. A little twinge in my back, but not like it has been.

Fingers crossed that this offers a decent solution for me!

    It’s kind of hit or miss, but sometimes health insurance will cover custom orthotics. You might also see if there’s a Good Feet or Stride Right store in your area (be prepared to spend some moolah, tho.)

    Oh yeah – getting older does in fact suck. But then there’s the wisdom that comes with it and you feel ok. For example, I have a skill set that would probably be highly sought after by a three letter agency or three.

    I’ve been wearing prescription orthotics since I was 10 years old. Glad you’re getting some extra support from Dr Scholl’s.
