Ep. 66: Xtreme Footwerks

Shawn started working with orthotics and helping people correct issues they had after his own need to realign his body. Shawn has gone through quite the journey to get to where he is but it has bene worth it and the information that he puts out and the customization that he is able to give each patient is impressive.

 

In this episode we cover why Shawn started Xtreme Footwerks as well as we get into some of the conditions that he commonly deals with. Shawn gives us a quick overview of common conditions that he sees and what exactly he is looking for when someone comes to see him. We were definitely blown away.
