In some ways celebrities are nothing like us. They stroll red carpets as often as we stroll supermarket aisles, and do so wearing fabulous designer dresses that cost more than the average American’s annual salary.
In my opinion, the true equalizer between them and us may lie in their feet. No, you may never attend the extravagant events that celebrities do. You may never have their gorgeous hair (and their gorgeous hair stylists) or their trim, toned bodies (and their personal trainers and chefs), but you may have equally challenging feet. In fact, I’d say many of these celebs have feet as problematic or worse than the rest of us. After all, wearing stylish shoes is practically a job requirement, and the shoes they wear contribute to foot pain and foot conditions.
The lifestyle of a pair of celebrity feet is tough. I feel for them, I really do. Just imagine what it feels like to be a celebrity. You have to look fabulous and wear designer shoes, but your bunions, hammertoes and corns are screaming at you.
Imagine having to have your feet injected so you can just walk down the Red Carpet for an awards show, because your bunions were screaming at you in pain. Well I have had to do this on numerous occasions and even though I have treated some of the most famous feet in the world, the working mom who comes to see me because she is having trouble walking with her kids, is every bit as important to me as today’s biggest celebrities.
You see pain of any kind is the great equalizer and it has no consideration for your status in life. Without a sturdy foundation (this being your feet) everything else in your life is going to suffer. If you are experiencing foot pain and discomfort, this will prevent from doing so many things we take for granted in our daily lives.
So the moral of this story is Always take care of your feet, and they will take care of you!
