Tatiana Bošková is a physical therapist who has worked in the field since 2009. She mainly focuses on children with scoliosis and women with incontinence. During her practice, however, she has learned that both the positioning and the actual shape of the feet have an enormous impact on proper therapy. Poor motor development in combination with poorly-selected shoes can lead to foot deformities. Here's what Tatiana had to say about her experience:
"I was looking for a way to help patients in such situations. I'm a proponent of conservative treatments that can be done at home without greater financial cost. One of the most important components of conservative treatment is physical therapy. It improves the position of the feet and the muscle function in the legs and corrects walking patterns, for example by involving the big toe in rebound.
The right exercises with various aids can lead to a rapid improvement in the baseline. One of the aids I suggest to my patients is alignment socks. I also use them to prevent possible deformities and complications. I would like to share with you the experience of one of my patients with wearing alignment socks and exercising in them.
“First visit to the rehab clinic: Mrs. Bošková recommended foot alignment socks that I was supposed to use for at least an entire month. She also recommended some exercises to reduce my symptoms and activate the muscles in my feet. That evening, I put the alignment socks on for the first time. I could only get them over the first third of my toes, and I only left them on for 15 minutes. After taking them off I had some unpleasant joint pain at night. When I woke up the next day, everything was normal, no pain. After the fourth day of using alignment socks, I felt less pain in my ankles and toes.
1st visit to the clinic
Now I was wearing the socks for 20 minutes at a time and had got them halfway up my toes.
On the seventh day of use, my right foot didn't hurt at all, while the joint of my big toe hurt a little on my left foot after taking them off. Now I could get the socks on fully and wore them for 30 minutes before going to sleep.
On the tenth day, I started wearing the alignment socks for 45 minutes before going to bed. Completely pain-free. After taking them off, I felt a pleasant relaxation in my feet. At each following rehab session, I learned new exercises and suggestions for improving my posture, which was very unnatural because of gymnastics.
After a month, I wear the alignment socks regularly for one or even two hours before bed. The next day my feet are beautifully rested and nothing hurts at all. It's an excellent aid. Now I couldn't do without them.”

Physical therapist Tatiana Bošková is not the only therapist who recommends alignment socks to patients. For example, physical therapist Karolína W. wrote us the following: “Very good experience from my physical therapy office. Feeling of relief, alleviation of problems. It's a yes for me." You can also find interesting interviews on our blog, for example with physiotherapists Bc. Lenka Tichá or Marcela Ehlová, DiS.
We have also heard from customers who purchased alignment socks based on recommendations from people they know: “I can't praise them enough. Sometimes I'm at work for 15 hours a day. When I put them on in the evening, it's a great relief. In the morning I can tell the difference," writes Jana F.
