My therapist goes outside the Zappos box

No one can ever blame my physical therapist for not thinking outside the box.

One of my problems is that my foot drops, so the front part of my feet touch the ground before the heel. That sounds pretty normal, but the issue is that my heels don't also easily touch the ground. I wind up on my tiptoes.

As I understand it, the issue is my calf muscle being too active It pulls my foot down.

My therapist has me wearing braces to stretch the calf muscle and keep my ankle bent.

She hoped botox might help, but the neurologist she talked to didn't think it would help.

She told me today I just need to wear high heels. Stilettos?

Cowboy boots. Your six year old instincts were correct.

I spent a lot of money on Zappos switching from heels to flats. My heels are available.

Ooh, I did not realize how brilliant my six0yea-oldself was. I just knew my boots ruled.

And my Uggs have heels but no luck. So no need for your heels.
