Lesley is walking tall thanks to Foot Solutions Walking had become increasingly difficult for Lesley Harman because of pain in her knees. Lesley, who works for a firm of independent financial advisers in Plymouth, could just about manage to walk to and from the bus stop and her workplace - but the pain was getting worse as the years wore on. Lesley, from Liskeard, said: “I just put it down to getting older and my doctor suggested I take fish oil to help my joints. I think it all started when I hurt my knee a few years earlier while walking down the cliffs at Whitsand Bay. “Over the years every step became more and more painful,” added Lesley. Then on a routine podiatry appointment at City Centre Chiropody earlier this year, it was suggested that Lesley might benefit from seeing the team at Foot Solutions - which is located in the same building on Royal Parade. “The staff were really professional and helpful and a foot scan revealed that I had extremely high arches, which were undoubtedly aggravating the problem with my knees.” Foot Solutions arranged for customised insoles to be made

My balance wasn’t brilliant before, but even that is sorted out now.” Lesley said that she had been able to purchase several pairs of shoes from Foot Solutions which were not only comfortable for walking, but also looked good for work.
