SAN RAFAEL, Calif., March 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Are flats good for your feet? How long should you stay in your heels? Australian podiatrist, and biomechanics specialist Phillip Vasyli, will lead an informative session about lower limb biomechanics and common problems associated with a condition faced by nearly 70 percent of the population: over-pronation of the feet. Phillip Vasyli will be hosting a "Healthy Feet" session at two Dillard's locations in Nevada.
Over-pronation often leads to foot, leg and other related pains elsewhere in the body that prevent many people from leading active lifestyles. In his 30 years of podiatry practice, Vasyli has successfully treated thousands of patients, ranging from amateur and professional athletes to those who work on their feet. Through this experience, he saw the effects of misalignment and developed affordable orthotic technology to help relieve this common problem.
Meet Phillip Vasyli at the following Dillard's Nevada locations:
Dillard's Reno Sierra Summit on Sunday, April 1st at 11 a.m.
Dillard's Henderson Galleria at Sunset on Friday, April 6th at 11 a.m.
Following Vasyli's "Healthy Feet, Healthy You" session, Phillip Vasyli will be at the women's shoe department to share the innovation behind the footwear collection created in collaboration with Andrew Weil, M.D., internationally recognized leader and pioneer in the field of integrative medicine. Dillard's is featuring the Dr. Andrew Weil Integrative Footwear Spring collection of women's sandals and walking shoes.
Weil Integrative Footwear features proprietary AMS Aided Motion System™ footbed technologies offering balance and alignment from the ground up. A 1st Ray™ Flexor Zone assists forefoot mobility and gait efficiency. The Tri-Planar Motion Control™ footbed aids rear-foot alignment and function.
"People who wear Weil Integrative Footwear are likely to enjoy easier movement, less fatigue, improved balance and posture and relief from aches and pains caused by over-pronation," explains Phillip Vasyli.
Andrew Weil, M.D., donates all of his after-tax profits from royalties from sales of Weil Integrative Footwear products directly to the Weil Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting integrative medicine through training, education and research.
