Although I have stocked and sold Long Shoe Horns for years at the clinic I have never used one myself until recently. Having just had a short break from work and returning refreshed, at the end of my first day my back was starting to play up. Yes you know that horrible sensation in the lower back which screams ” I’m going to give way if you bend forward “! Changing my shoes was going to be a nightmare. So, for the first time ever I used a long shoe horn. Wow! these gadgets are great and not just for the older generation who normally are the only people to purchase them. I told my wife when I got home and she said that I must be getting old! Me getting old!! Guess who’s getting one for her birthday soon.
