Healthy Shoes from DR. KONG PHILIPPINES Specialised Footwear

Enjoying the wonderful world of DR. KONG PHILIPPINES Specialised Footwear. It is my great pleasure to be invited to the intimate product introduction of Dr. Kong Philippines held last May 27 at Chef Laudico Guevarra's Restaurant, San Juan, Manila. 

DR. Kong is a line of “healthy” shoes from Hong Kong. They are the first to provide the innovative “Check & Fit” foot examination and insole fitting service. It is a free professional examination of foot provided to people of all ages.

DR. Kong recommend the most suitable and economical foot care products according to the customer’s feet. We offer shoes for children and adults, school bags, and foot care accessories.  Free and Professional Assessment of the foot is with the use of a pedometer. After the foot assessment, the most suitable foot care product will be recommended according to the condition of the customer’s feet.
 Mr. Raymond Ng Kwan Ying, Vice Pesident of Dr. Kong Holdings  Ltd.
“We Don’t Just Sell Shoes. We recommend the most suitable footwear for your foot condition.”

DR. KONG’s corporate culture was built upon a sense of mission - “Educate the public and remind them the importance of foot and spine care.” Dr. Kong spreads the information on foot care through various channels to achieve their great mission of “Bringing foot care to each and every household.”

Reports shows that the shoes we wear have a substantial impact on the load on the knee joints which can impair the quality of one’s life. A small abnormality in foot function can be the cause of and have a large impact on knee and other joints higher up in the body, causing pain and discomfort.
Most of us are blessed with healthy feet from the day we are born, but problems often arise with the development and abuse which we subject these feet to later in life by wearing inappropriate footwear. Statistic has shown that between 75% to 80% of the adult population has some form of foot problem and unfortunately, most people do not seek advice on it.

It is thus clear that footcare in the early formative years is vital to ensure that children grow with healthy feet, which may otherwise result in foot problems like flatfoot and rearfoot valgus (a condition in which the rear of foot tends to curve outwards at the ankle joint) as they move towards adulthood.

As we age, mobility is a major contributor to a satisfying life but foot ailments can be a contributor in making it difficult; if not impossible to work or participate in daily activities that can keep us active and healthy. Foot problem can lead to knee, hip and lower back pain that can also limit mobility. Most foot ailments stem from the cumulative effects of years of wear, tear and ‘abuse’ which we subject our feet to. Women have four times as many foot problems as men because they have a long history of wearing high heels and/or pointy toe shoes. In some cases foot ailments can be an early signal of more serious medical problems like arthritis or diabetes.

Remember if you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your ankles, knees or hip joints. . . . . the direct cause may be the result of ill-fitting shoes.

Mr Raymond Ng founded Dr. Kong Footcare in 1999, with a mission to educate the public on the importance of foot health. Since its inception, it has grown rapidly; having expanded to 62 retail outlets in Hong Kong, 70 retail outlets in China and now arrive on Philippines shores .
