    i have just been diagnosed with arthritis in my right knee, which came on quite suddenly.
    it hurt whilst walking, sitting down and in bed. the dr has given me some voltarol cream which has calmed the pain a bit.
    i was wondering what kind of shoes are best to wear? and where i can get them . i live in ellesmere shropshire.
    thank you,

      Thank you for contacting us about suitable and appropriate footwear. There are various places where you can purchase footwear that are designed specifically for people with arthritic problems. Usually the professional people ie doctors, feet specialists, OT’s recommend low heeled, wide fitting shoes. There are also insoles that can be inserted in footwear that can make footwear more comfortable which helps when walking. There are a various places that do these shoes ie Cosy Feet, Wider Fit Shoes Ltd, Hottershoes. You can download catalogues or request a catalogue on-line. We will send you a direct email with further information. Thank you for contacting us at SDN
