Incredible Patient Outcomes
I felt compelled to write you and let you know how much I appreciate what the Richie brace has done for me. I am a big guy (over 250 lbs.) and recently celebrated my 50th birthday. I still love to play softball and golf and anything else that keeps me active. But with my age and weight, both golf and softball became quite a challenge. You see I suffer from Adult Acquired Flatfoot and my foot pain started to get quite unbearable. I had standard orthotics which certainly help, but my body weight pressing down on my feet for long periods of time started to make an 18 hole round or a 9 inning game virtually impossible.
I got the Richie brace about a month ago and I can tell you that my endurance of time on my feet has almost doubled. The brace seems to take most of the downward pressure off the sole of my foot and transfer it magically away. The brace puts my foot and ankle in a level position thus saving my knees and hips from resultant pain.
The added benefit is that my foot seems to be much more stable when in action. Being more stable when shifting my weight from back to front in either a baseball or golf swing means hitting the ball with more precision. It has actually improved my golf game. So not only is the pain in my feet gone, but my scores are improving as well.
Thanks for giving me the ability to continue to play the games that I love.
