  • Orthopedic shoe recommendations

    Looking for recommendations for orthopedic walking shoes. When we travel & do lots of walking my back starts hurting would like to find good walking shoes.

    Maybe someone here will have a suggestion but I have never heard of particular shoes helping with back pain other than not wearing high heels. Where did you get that idea?

      Having new comfortable running shoes is a dream.....they actually stimulate us to go walking! Thanks for reminding me as I need to go shoe shopping today! I buy the New Balance brand made in the USA.

      When it comes to clothing items, I have a hard time buying online. If something isn't just right, you have to do a second trip to return the items, then try again online, or go to a local retail store. If its the wrong item, you end up doing multiple wasted trips.

      At 10 months post on my spine surgeries, and 2 months on my shoulder surgery, I went to the Redwoods National Park of Northern California to see if I could finally get up to a mile. The ultra soft pine needles of the forest were just heaven to walk on, a sort of natural shock absorber. For scoliosis patients with many levels fused, we can use all the help we can get.
