I have to pass this on. Due to repeated, lower spinal trauma I had low back pain and sciatic pain years ago. The sciatic pain was horrendous and made it very difficult for me to stand for any length of time. Lo and behold, I came across some pedicure thong sandals which don’t just have one thong that goes between the big and second toes but they have four thongs which separate all of the toes. Women have a wider “Q angle” than men so sciatic pain can be more common in women.
These sandals provided just enough splaying of my toes, and greater stability, so the lower back pain and sciatic pain disappeared very quickly. It was amazing!! During winter when I did not wear them I still did not experience any pain. I have since worn the sandals out, which cost 10 bucks, and have duct tape on the bottom of one of them. Lol!! I ordered some more expensive ones which are called Yogini sandals, and are not the pedicure kind which are terry on top and have thicker thongs, but they are too big so I ordered a smaller size. Now I have to wait. I hope these give me the same effect even though I don’t have pain anymore.
