The test revealed to me that my arches are not as they should be and that the front of my foot was bearing more weight than it should be. It then recommended an orthotic insert for me. It cost roughly around $44.00 which I didn't really want to spend, but I decided it was certainly worth a try. My husband has some from a foot doctor and they cost us over $100 out of pocket after insurance, so $44 didn't seem that bad if they work.

Well anything in moderation can't hurt. My recommendation is to give it a try on a controlled surface, such as a rubberized track, and see how you do. Barefoot runners will say that such a surface is not good and a smooth concrete surface is best. I respectfully disagree with that. Running barefoot will provide a very significant change in mechanics, so you need to ease into it. Shifting from shoes to barefoot running to quickly will expose you to injury. You can see 1) How I walk (on the ball of my foot and 2) That I need new/real insoles. In order for a disc to bulge, there has to be a tear in the outer covering. This can be caused by an injury, wear and tear of the spine as we age, or even toxins and infections. If the outer covering tears, the jelly center will begin to shift towards the weak area of the disc, which creates a bulge. Why do I bring this up? This is where most bulging disc treatments fail, and I don't want you to fall victim to this. Most treatments for a bulging disc are designed to numb the inflamed nerve, which does provide temporary relief at the time. Brandt R.
