Flip Flops may be Hurting Your Feet and Legs
I have heard the stories about all the bacteria you can pick up on your feet from flip flops, but now you may actually hurt yourself from wearing flip flops? Brings me back to the days when my older sisters had Dr. Scholl sandals with the wooden bottom and the bump under the toes, now those could really do some damage.
Spring is upon us, and with it the time to strap on some fun, stylish flip-flops and start enjoying the season’s beauty. So run to the local drug store, grab some inexpensive flip-flops, and head outdoors, right? Wrong.
The truth is many of our favorite flip-flops can be sending us feet first into serious injuries to our feet, ankles, knees, hips and even our back. Over time these injuries can lead to serious bone, tendon, and joint damage.
