Reading, PA --(PR.com)-- Find out how to put an end to foot pain by making a reservation for a Free foot analysis on Saturday, September 25th. The free evaluation, offered at Foot Solutions Reading, will be conducted by Dr. Megan Shannon, a Podiatrist from Berks Foot and Ankle Surgical Associates from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Reservations for this free evaluation are required. Call 610-775-4950.
As Foot Solutions is dedicated to helping people achieve better health through their feet, offering this opportunity to the community on Family Health and Fitness Day, USA is a natural fit," said Foot Solutions Reading owner Ron Alberti. "As 90 percent of all people are wearing improperly fitted shoes and as most foot problems are caused or aggravated by improperly fitted shoes, our goal is to educate Berks County residents about the importance of choosing the right footwear as a means to end foot pain and even knee and back pain," said Alberti.
And when people are free from foot, knee and back pain, they are more apt to exercise regularly, which improves overall health according to a report on Physical Activity and Health published by the U.S. Surgeon General. Disease prevention, increased strength and endurance, and a reduction in feelings of anxiety and depression are some of the benefits cited.
In addition to the free foot evaluations, Foot Solutions is also taking this opportunity to provide support to a charity called Jons Journey, a foundation created to help parents cope with some of the medical costs for children undergoing pediatric neurologic care. Throughout the month of September, Foot Solutions will donate $1 to the foundation for every fan who joins their Facebook page and posts something about jonsjourney (jonsjourney.org). A portion of the sales from the September 25th event will also be donated to the foundation.
