My PT has recommended these special shoes to me. No names, I know. They have a 1 1/2-2 inch coil/spring at the heal, these are open so you actually see the spring and look a little strange, but are supposed to be great for absorbing weight and helping back and knee pain.
Has anyone tried these before or after surgery? The are fairly expensive and you need to go to a store to be specially fitted, but I am willing to try just about anything at this point.
