Kathy Carandang, certified pedorthist and owner of the WalkEZStore, was featured in the spring 2013 edition of Living Well Indianapolis South magazine. In her article, Kathy answers some common questions people have, including what does pronation mean; and why is it so hard to get a pair of shoes to feel comfortable for the long term.
Kathy also discusses why people seem to complain about pain more often.
“Nowadays, people seem to be so busy multitasking – taking care of everyone and everything around them. But, speaking from experience, if you don’t take care of yourself first, you’ll soon be stressed and in no condition to take care of others. Stress can take a toll on our daily ability to cope, causing real physical pain to develop. Therefore, it’s important to find ways to reduce stress in your life. Plus, you need to realize that pain is your body’s way of telling you something’s wrong. So, you need to uncover the source of the pain since the problem will likely just get worse – making your recovery longer.”
