If you have foot issues, you really need to consider your Spring and Summer footwear: most flip-flops lack the structure in the arch that supports the planter fascia in the bottom of the foot, so wearing them can exacerbate plantar fasciitis, or painful strained arches.
 
Because of the poor support and structure in flimsy flip-flops, a person has a tendency to grab the ground with their toes to keep the sandal on, exacerbating their flexor tendons to stabilize the toes, which can add to the progression of hammertoes and\or exacerbate a neuroma – which is an injured nerve between the metatarsal heads.
 
If you suffer from any of these problems, especially after wearing flip-flops, please call one of our Advanced Podiatry offices in Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, Maspeth, or Coram and one of our award-winning expert podiatrists will be happy to evaluate your problem and discuss treatment options with you.
