Some Flip Flops Assist Your Body Posture And Others Ruin It

I was working on a patient today and looked over at her flip flops. I told her that I thought they looked really good for her posture. She said they are Havaianas, from Brazil. I didn't realize it but Brazil is where Havaianas are made.

The funny thing is that I called my wife and my daughter-in-law over to admire the Havaianas and they were both wearing Havaianas also! I know Havaianas cost more but my wife usually gets about 2 years of wear from a pair.

I have been recommending Havaianas to my patients for years. Most flip flops break down in a few weeks. In fact, last week, a patient of mine was wearing a pair of flips flops she had for 1 day - they were already wasted. The rubber had molded to her feet and they were disturbing her posture.

Even though the Havaianas are slightly raised in the heel area than the toe area, we often put in heel chips to give them a little more heel height.
