Now, bear in mind that *nothing* has ever cured my back pain. Every day is like Groundhog Day. I wake up, my back really hurts, I take a hot shower and do yoga stretches, feel a little better, and that's about it. I've tried quite a lot of things. These things that are sort of like epidural shots helped reduce my pain by 50%, but it wore off after a few days. Basically, if I am awake, I am in pain. I am mentioning this because I believe it would be unreasonable to expect these shoes to reduce my back pain.
I wore these when I was walking the hospital halls, every day.
Expensive, yes...but in five days, first my back pain was gone, then knee pain, then my heel pain disappeared. They look crazy but they really work.
They are also semi-adjustable and extremely durable.
