Where upon wearing Equilibras for the last few months, I have seen a remarkable decrease in the regularities of my back pains. To illustrate, in December 2011, I had to complete a seven-hour lifeguard duty where I had to spend most of the time standing or walking. At the end of the day, I was anticipating a sore back and spending the following day in bed popping muscle relaxants and painkillers. Surprisingly, I didn’t have to. There was no subsequent pain, and I was up and about the whole day. In as much as other factors might have played a part, I believe the footwear was a necessary factor.
