Thank you for the Posture Control Insoles. Such a simple design solution for chronic problems. We'd changed beds several times to correct my husbands pain in the upper buttock area - no change. Several appointments with a physical therapist and exercise well done and no change. After a week or so in your insoles the pain was gone and if he wears them stays away. He did have a low back attack and was afraid he'd exchanged one problem for another but it seems to be better. I find while wearing the insoles I can stand for a much longer time without pain. Thank you for the help.
Sincerely, Barbara Mahoney

Thank God for Posture Control insoles. I ordered mine about six weeks ago and have, for the first time in 13 years, a pain free walk. My right foot could be a model for the foot you show on the website. I discovered your site when I read about Morton's Foot in the book, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofacial Pain Syndrome, and decided to check it out on the net. "Too many to count" doctors have never been able to explain why I had such pain and inflammation on the inside of my right knee and the outside of my right hip, along with muscles aches and pains and TMJ. Even though I told them I thought the problem was with my foot, no doctor, podiatrists included, recognized Morton's Foot or acknowledged that my problems began with the foot. Boggles my mind!!! I have even been in physical therapy nine times in the last 10 years.

I started using the Posture Control Insoles when they were introduced to me by Andrew Slater (my former chiropractor) before he moved. We started out with the 6.0mm, but that was too much so we switched to the 3.5mm. Once I began wearing them my shin splints settled down, I felt better jogging and now I have them in all of my shoes. I have bought six pair of them to date. I have a pair in my workout shoes, work shoes, yard work boots, cowboy boots, etc. That was over a year ago and I swear by them and recommend them to my friends.

Dear Mr. Svae
Bjorn: Thanks for the information. I spoke with you (for almost an hour) over 2 weeks ago and did order the 3.5mm insoles. When I first got the insoles they looked very plain and ordinary, in fact, I thought I had gotten ripped off. However, as soon as I tried them on – what a difference in my posture and ability to stand comfortably!! I have worn them for about 2 weeks now and just placed an order for the 6mm insoles. I’ll be using the 3.5mm for my soccer cleats and the 6mm for everyday use – I’ll let you know how it goes.

Shoulder and Neck Pain
John Cullen from New York writes in an e-mail:
I suffered for a long time with back and neck problems. The woman I use for massage and trigger point therapy noticed my big toes were a little short and was affecting the way I walked. After she convinced me to purchase my first pair I noticed a difference right away. I felt my body adjusting itself between my office visits. I was eager to purchase an additional pair so that I wasn't changing them from shoe to shoe. I recommended them to my sister. I was having a hard time keeping my pelvis stable but with your product the adjustments are lasting.

Despite having worn orthotics for years, I developed continued worsening of my symptoms of lower back/hip, shoulder and neck pain. My neck and shoulder pain had gotten to the point that it was often difficult to get a good night's rest. Even when I finally fell asleep, I would wake up because of the aching in my neck and shoulders.

I am a forty year old female. I have been a physically active as long as I can remember. I run 10-17 miles four times a week, walk 6-8 miles, love to hike. Over the years my arches fell, my back began hurting. I was fitted for orthotics, which cost me over 500 (2x). I had to change my shoes so I could fit the orthotics. I continued on hoping this would solve my pain, unfortunately the pain continued and became far worse. One day I was basically unable to barely walk. I made an appointment with Carl Jelstrup and he discovered my orthotics were throwing me off. Carl recommended "Posture Control Insoles". At first I questioned the insoles being so thin but since they are so affordable and not thick I decided to give them a try. Well, it's been 2 years and I have been "pain" free, I am able to run, walk long miles without any pain or discomfort, I am able to slip my insoles into a dress shoe without any major adjustments. Posture Control Insoles give me peace of mind and a pain free body!! Thanks so much!

I’m writing to thank you for your great product, the Posture Control Insole™ .
I have found that it controls my hyperpronation and enables a good posture by supporting my big toe. The insole allows for a proper foot strike, and I don't need an arch support.
What a wonderful feeling it is to have my feet support themselves without being needlessly confined in an orthotic. An orthotic separates me from the ground. My leg muscles are allowed to stretch out and my gait is correct, as my feet are aligned properly. I can now read the surface that I am walking on.
I have spent a lot of money over the years on orthotics to control hyperpronation.
Orthotics are expensive, and they simply don’t work nearly as well as The Posture Control Insole. I would recommend the Posture Control Insole to anyone who hyperpronates.

I can now run pain free for more than an hour thanks to the changes your Posture Control Inserts have given. I am not really a runner but at fifty-five jogging from three to ten miles several times a week is good for my heart, blood sugar control, and overall health.
After trying many cushioned and supportive inserts and metatarsal pads from reputable companies such as Doctor Scholl’s, Spenco, and even custom molded orthotics my ball of foot pain persisted. I spent even more hundreds of dollars on running shoes. I tried the cushioned New Balance 876 as recommended. Then I read runners placed one foot in front of the other causing functional overpronation so I tried New Balance 857. Mizuno Wave Creation 7, Brooks Diad, Reebok Premier and others forgotten all with and without specialty inserts and lacing techniques and the pain persisted.
I tried Dansko clogs (the worst for me), the negative heel Earth Shoe Energetic-K and SAS Time Out (popular with neuophropy patents), and Georgia Boot 6503 comfort core since I work on concrete floors and have even slept in night splints to treat plantar fasciitis. Tried ice and ibuprofen for short term relief.
Five months ago I first tried the Posture Control Inserts I immediately felt a muscular response while walking. It took perhaps two months before my running improved. First up to thirty minutes pain free and now to over an hour before some light discomfort begins. My feet do not ache at work. I still can get tired but before my feet hurt even when lying in bed. I have noticed that health walking strengthens my feet more than running. In other words walking helps me run better. I will try my 3mm for running and continue the 6mm for every thing else.
