YOUNGER SELF, PERSEVERANCE. MY ADVICE WOULD BE, DON’T GROW UP SO FAST. ENJOY YOUR CHILDHOOD. TRINI: I LIKE THAT. WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY. PATTI FROM STEP AHEAD ARCH SUPPORTS IS HERE. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT SOME OF THE MORE COMMON FOOT AILMENTS FOR FOLKS ON THEIR FEET A LOT, WHICH DESCRIBES JUST ABOUT EVERYONE THIS TIME OF YEAR. HELLO, PATTI. THANKS FOR JOINING US. WHAT ARE SOME OF THOSE COMMON FOOT AILMENTS. SOME. THESE COMMON FOOT AILMENTS, AS YOU CAN SEE, ARE CALLUSES, CORNS, HAMMERTOES AND THAT MAIN ONE IS PLANTAR FASCIITIS. YOU MUST, MUST SUPPORT THE TWO ARCHES THAT YOU HAVE TO YOUR FEET. PUT THAT BODY WEIGHT WHERE IT SHOULD BE. LIKE I’VE SPOKEN BEFORE. THE THEORY IS, THE FOOT CHANGES ITS SHAPE WITH THE ABUSE YOU GIVE IT. WEIGHT BEARING, FRICTION, STRESS AND INPROPER FOOT WEAR. MANY OF THE FOOTWEAR HERE IS FOR SHOCK ABSORPTION AND EXTRA SUPPORT. YOU NEED TO HOLD YOUR FOOT IN THE CORRECT POSITION. TRINI: THESE ARE THE WAYS WE CAN CHECKING CORRECT THE PROBLEM. WHAT IF SOMEONE WANTS EXTRA SUPPORT? WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THESE ATHLETIC SHOES. IN THIS, IT NOW HAS THREE LAYERS OF EVA AGAIN, MUCH, MUCH CUSHION AND MUCH SUPPORT. SO YOU STILL NEED TO PUT THAT ORTHODIC INTO THAT SHOE. HOWEVER, WE WANT TO KEEP YOU AWAY FROM THIS. YOU’RE PUTTING A LOT OF PRESSURE UP HERE. I SEE IT ALL THE TIME IN THE BALL OF THE FOOT. WE’RE SHOPPING, SHOPPING UNTIL WE DROP. AGAIN, WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS LIFT THAT BODY WEIGHT OFF THAT METATARSAL. YOU’RE PUTTING ALL THE BODY WEIGHT. THIS IS WHAT HURTS ME SO MUCH. AND YOU RUN INTO EVEN MORE PROBLEMS. TRINI: YOU’RE OVERCOMPENSATING AND YOU END UP CAUSING ANOTHER PROBLEM. THAT’S CORRECT. TRINI: THE HOLIDAYS IS HERE. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SHOPPING. THIS SEEMS LIKE A GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT TO GIVE SOMEONE YOU LOVE, WHO MIGHT BE SUFFERING FROM FOOT PAIN OR BACK PAIN BECAUSE OF THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR FOOT. CORRECT. ON THE HOLIDAY GIFT, YOU CAN GET A GIFT CERTIFICATE. AGAIN, IT CAN BE USED ANY TIME THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. AND THAT’S A GREAT WAY TO GO. WE ALSO TALK ABOUT THE KITS INTEREST OUR OUTER ISLANDS. SO AGAIN, WE TALK ABOUT ALL THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF PROBLEMS GOING ON WITH THE FEET. A HIGH ARCH, A LOW ARCH, A FLATFOOT. THE FIRST THING WE WANT TO DO IS WE WANT TO TAKE A PRINT OF YOUR FOOT OFF THIS HARRIS MAT. IS SHOWING ME THE PRESSURE POINTS, THE ALIGNMENT OF THE FOOT AND ARCH. THAT’S THE FIRST THING WE DO. AGAIN, WE’RE GOING TO PUT THIS IN ALL YOUR EXISTS SHOES. I’M TALKING ABOUT THE ORTHODICS. TRINI: FIRST THING IS TO GET OUR FOOT PRINT TRIBUTE. FOOTPRINT. FOR OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS FROM THE NEIGHBOR ISLAND, YOU MAIL THIS TO THEM. THEY TAKING THEIR OWN FOOTPRINT AND MAIL IT TO YOU SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. THAT’S CORRECT. TRINI: THAT MAKES SENSE. THANK YOU SO MUCH. DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIALS FOR THE HOLIDAYS? WE DO. EVERYBODY KNOWS ABOUT THE FIT PLOPS ORIGINALLY OUT OF LONDON. COME AND SEE ME. I’LL SHOW YOU THE ARRAY I HAVE. TRINI: AND YOU HAVE TWO LOCATIONS. I DO. TRINI: WHERE ARE THEY? AT THE KAPIOLANI AND COOKE STREET LOCATION IN TOWN. YOU CAN PARK YOUR CAR ON KAWAIAHAO, AND WE HAVE THE OTHER LOCATION, WHICH EVERYBODY KNOWS IS THE PEARL KAI SHOPPING CENTER IN AIEA. SO YOU REALLY NEED TO COME AND SEE US AND GET THOSE FEET CORRECTED. WE FOE YOU’RE DOING — KNOW YOU’RE DOING SO MUCH WALKING. WE DON’T WANT TO BE IN PAIN. I DON’T WANT TO GO SHOPPING.
