838 Scarsdale Avenue Scarsdale, New York 10583 914-722-9200 “During my first visit, I was scheduled to spend 30 minutes each with the therapist and an assistant (to assist with exercises), but my therapist spent the entire hour on an evaluation and some initial therapy, as well as to discuss the treatment plan and answe all of my questions and concerns. That alone told me everything I needed to know about their patient focus (which hasn’t changed at all during subsequent visits). Highly recommended!” - M. W.

While the golden ruleforwalking istowearsneakers,not all sneakers are created equally. You need to wear a sneaker that is going to provide you with the arch support that meets your individual needs. This maymeanupgradingfromyourminimal support sneaker to something more athletically designed. 2. Try a custom insert in your shoe. Of course, you can’t wear sneakers all the time.
