The Jambu Sweden (upper) and The Jambu Wedge (lower) are excellent woman’s shoes for a wide variety of foot conditions…
The secret to this fabulous shoe is it’s thick, rigid sole which allows for less motion across the bottom of the foot and less motion means less pain. It’s wide toebox and rigid rearfoot control allows for more biomechanial control. This limits motion and therefore limits pain and mechanical strain as well as decreases the chance of injury.
This shoe is recommended for patients with:
*Mild to Moderate Hallux Limitus (limited range of motion of the first toe joint)
*Mild to Moderate osteoarthritis of the first toe joint
*Mild Morton’s Neuroma
*Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)
*Mild Osteoarthritis of the mid-tarsal joint (mid-foot)
*Mild Knee, Hip and Lower Back Pain
*Capsulitis in the toe joints
This shoe is NOT recommended for:
*Neuropathic Patients (Nerve Damage)
*Moderate to Severe Bunions and Hammertoes
*Moderate to Severe Degenerative Joint Disease/Osteoarthritis
*Severe Hallux Limitus/Rigidus (Severely limited range of motion of the first toe joint or a fused first toe joint)
*Moderate to Severe Tendonitis
*Moderate to Severe Morton’s Neuroma

Have a wonderful day!
