BE CAREFUL: Why Flip-Flops are the Most Dangerous Summer Choice

It was the summer of 2013 when my family and I moved to Europe to spend the few summer months on the sea.

We decided that we could work online and have clients meetings via. Skype. Everything was going pretty well. Each side was satisfied with the work and everything else.
The time we spent there was outstanding. If you have the same opportunity, I strongly advise you to do it at least once in your lifetime.
My official “shoes” during that summer period were my flip-flops. Of course, right?
After a month, or month and a half, I started feeling this strange pain in my foot.
At first, I thought it was from all the morning jogs I did the week before that. So, I decided to take a break. The pain was going stronger and stronger.

I even visited a doctor there. He said that everything was fine.
No special damages in my foot. He recommended me to relax more and while I’m lying down my feet to be a little bit inclined on something.

BE CAREFUL: Why Flip-Flops are the Most Dangerous Summer Choice
I tried everything. The pain was taking over my leg. My tendon started hurting like crazy. Keep in mind that whenever I walked somewhere, I was doing that on my flip-flops.
It was an ongoing mystery what happened to my feet. I started to feel scared about my health. We were ready to fly back to the US, and my husband decided to try one more thing.
He contacted his friend, who is a doctor actually, to ask him for advice. He immediately asked if I’m walking on flip-flops. It changed the whole thing. I ditched them, and my foot recovered in a week.
That’s my story and last experience with these pain-causers.
Right, when I saw these evidence about flip-flops I immediately wanted to share with you.
So, here it goes.

Flip-Flops will make you clumsy

The University of Auburn wanted to know more about the individuals who are addicted to flip-flops.
They tested people who are wearing sneakers and others wearing flip-flops. The results came in and showed that the second group of individuals walk slower and are clumsier than the first group.

Flip-Flops can damage your heels and toes

I can ensure you about this one. My story is written all over this evidence. Wearing the flops puts enormous pressure on your heels. Regularly wearing them will result in pain in the heels and toes.

Flip-flops can get your blisters

It’s the most common side effect of wearing flip-flops. They can further attack your health.

Flip-flops can change your body and cause pain

These summer shoes are not designed to hold your body stable. The pain you feel, or even the blisters could modify the way you walk. It means your body is getting used to the hunched position.
Doing this for 3 or 5 months could affect your spine, hips, and knees.
It’s your choice. Make a good one!

I don’t want to sound ridiculous or “asking for things” but I haven’t felt back pain for more than 5 years.

I know for sure that this is a product of being active through the day. This is why I always ask from you to be more active and start exercising once and for all.
People who work while sitting on a desk always experience back pain. Sometimes their organs are struggling to keep their healthy level.
The spine problems often cause pain in the most random places of your body. And that’s not the worst part. The worst part is that you don’t know that it’s the spine’s fault for this pain.
Like any other person in this world, you are focusing on the place that hurts. You are trying different treatments, but the effect is minimal.
This is why I decided to write this post.
I found an infographic that will help you understand what organ is closely attached to the spine.

Pain Source: How The Spine Causes Pain to Your Internal Organs?
This describes the pain you’ve been feeling in certain organs.
Depending on where you feel the pain, in what area or organ, you should check if there is something wrong with the spine.
Treatment and further strengthening of the spine will help you relieve the pain and get rid of all the problems with other organs.
I advise you to check with your physiotherapist. He will tell you if you have some spine issues or not.
As a bonus here is a video where you can do full spine stretching and exercises.
Yoga. It’s calming, peaceful and amazing!
If some of your friends recently complained about spine or organ pain, share this with them!
