Hi, my name is Tommy Benton, a 67 year old Federal Government retiree, pretty active spending a lot of time in the gym 4-6 days a week and just enjoying life. I heard about Protalus from a website and I was very much interested in it because I was having so much Plantar Fasciitis. It had come and gone for a few months and was apparently here to stay. I had tried some products from a local pharmacy but was just not getting any relief and had thought I’d give this a try. In addition to Plantar Fasciitis, I had some discomfort in my left knee.
Once I started using Protalus, in 24 hours my pain had subsided significantly and within three days my pain was gone and I had no discomfort with my knee. I had attempted some other orthotic insoles that were available through my local pharmacy, but it had not served the purpose. They seemed to be well made but they were just not effective. And so I was looking for something online that I could buy that would not necessitate a trip to the podiatrist.
I came across these and there was so much positive feedback on the web about the product that I just decided that I would give it a try. My experience with Protalus has been extremely positive. It’s been A+. I’ve trimmed them to fit my shoe and have used them for some dress shoes and athletic shoes. But predominantly I wear them in my athletic shoes every day. I have only been a user for about 2-3 months. They are still holding up well.
I will more than likely have to buy a new pair in the near future and may even purchase two pairs so I can alternate them when I do make a purchase. Before wearing them, my workout activities were limited, I wasn’t using the treadmill or track very much anymore because of my inability to walk without pain. Now, I’m back on the treadmill, back on a cross trainer, actually this morning I did the cross trainer for a half hour and then a mile on the track before lifting some weights, so I’m back into my regular routine.
If you’re having trouble with plantar fasciitis, I can wholeheartedly endorse the product as being helpful in that area.
