Flip Flops For Bad Backs

Flip flops for bad
backs
You’re thinking about buying a pair of flip flops but
worried that they’re bad for your back: that they don’t give your feet enough
support or offer cushioning for your soles. Don’t worry; there are flip flops
available that can do all of those things, provided that you follow a few
golden rules.
Seek out flip flops
with cushioning
A few years ago cushioned flip flops were only available in
a few specialist outlets and formed somewhat of a niche market. Not so these
days. Cushioned flip flops are everywhere, with most of the top brands offering
soft padded soles with extended support for your ankles and arches.
Try out a few different varieties and try to find the pair
that feel the most comfortable for you. An extremely versatile sandal, these
supportive flip flops will compliment anything in your wardrobe or suitcase and,
most importantly, will make sure your feet and legs stay comfortable and well
looked after.
Limit your usage
If you do suffer from a bad back and you find flip flops
uncomfortable, be sensible about how much you wear them. Try to keep a tab on
how long you spend in flip flops each day and plan ahead to make sure that your
activities for the day will not be too strenuous.  
If you’re on holiday and you know you’re going to be walking
in the hills or visiting a mountain villa somewhere, then wear more supportive
shoes that will cover your foot to prevent injury. If you’re on the beach or
taking a gentle stroll, then a good pair of flip flops will keep you cool and
provide the perfect summer footwear.
Try t-bars as opposed
to thongs
There are several types of flip flops. Some styles come use small straps and buckles such as
T-bars instead of thongs to support your feet. Technically, they’re more like
sandals, but are also available in waterproof materials that won’t get wrecked
on the beach while you’re walking about.
While thongs may wobble and slip across your feet, t-bars
are certain to keep them thoroughly in place, providing maximum comfort and
minimum worry.
Stay flat
Many high and mid-heeled flip fops are available this
season. If you have any complications whatsoever with your feet or back, then
stick to flats. They look great dressed up for the evenings and won’t
compromise you style.
