Addressing Lower Back and Knee Pain

Pain in the lower back and knees can stem from a number of different things. Knee pain can be related to injuries (such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage) and fractures; types of arthritis and other risk factors such as excess weight, lack of muscle flexibility or strength, and physical activities or sports that put a lot stress on the knees (like alpine skiing). Symptoms typically associated with knee pain are: swelling and stiffness; redness and warmth to the touch; weakness or instability; popping or crunching noises; and the inability to fully straighten the knee.

Back pain too can result from a number of different factors such as: muscle or ligament strains; bulging or ruptured disks, arthritis, skeletal irregularities; nerve-related pain caused by irritated or pinched nerves; and osteoporosis. Common symptoms of back pain include lower back muscles cramping; muscle spasms with associated discomfort in the gluteal region; and pain in the lumbar spine.

Both knee and back pain can be debilitating making daily activities like walking sometimes intolerable and can lead to poor posture which further exacerbates the problems. Treatments for both knew and back pain can range from stretching, to medication and injections to surgery in some cases.

A clinically proven, non-medicinal and non-surgical treatment for both knee and back pain is the Barefoot Science Strengthening System. Unlike traditional orthotics that offer only a short-terms solution, Barefoot science addresses the underlying issue of strength in the feet. By reducing strain in the lower back and strengthening the muscles of the feet and lower leg, Barefoot Science, efficiently manages impact force and stabilizes the lower back. Barefoot Science Insoles strengthen the foot muscles, exercise the feet, help support the arch, alignment, and even posture, with a patented domed arch.

Stronger feet are better able to manage forces that would quickly fatigue the knees, hips and back.

Barefoot Science and Metatarsalgia

Pain and inflammation at the ball of the foot (known as the metatarsal) is referred to as metatarsalgia. This type of foot condition is most prevalent in people who participate in sports or activities that involve running or jumping. Ill-fitting shoes can also be a cause of metatarsalgia.

Symptoms typically associated with metatarsalgia are: sharp, aching or burning pain in the ball of the foot (the part of the sole just behind the toes); pain that worsens when standing, ,walking, running or flexing the feet; sharp or shooting pain, numbness or tingling in the toes; and the feeling of having a pebble in your shoe. These symptoms can be brought on by a number of different factors such as: intense training or activity related to a high impact sport (runners are extremely vulnerable to this condition); having a high arch (which puts extra pressure on the metatarsals); foot deformities such as hammertoe and bunions; excess body weight which puts increased pressure on the metatarsals and poorly fitted shoes (such as heels or shoes with narrow toes, or shoes that aren’t well padded); and suffering from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout.

Remedies to aid the pain of metatarsalgia include: resting and elevating the feet after prolonged periods of standing or walking; icing the affected area; taking anti-inflammatory medication; and the use of arch supports or metatarsal pads.

Barefoot Science can remedy this problem through the use of the Barefoot Science insoles. Our insoles feature a dome contour that help to open up the affected area through gentle pressure thus reducing pain. The Barefoot Science System encourages the foot to work, increasing circulation and making the muscles stronger. The insoles also help with shock absorption and arch support helping to minimize problems with metatarsalgia.

Barefoot Science: Healing Heel Spurs

A calcium deposit causing a protrusion on the underside of the heel bone is known as a heel spur. Heel spurs are typically linked to plantar fasciitis (when the ligament connecting the heel bone to the toes is strained, weakened, swollen or irritated). Heel spurs are the result of strains on foot muscles and ligaments, stretching of the plantar fascia and repeated tearing of the membrane that covers the heel bone. This is a common affliction of athletes who practice sports involving great amounts of running and jumping.

Heel spurs themselves do are not cause pain but rather the soft tissue injuries associated with them. People suffering with heel spurs will often feel as if a pin is sticking into the bottom of their feet when the first stand up in the morning. The pain will typically subside over time but can return after standing or sitting for prolonged periods.

This condition can result from a number of different factors. Causes of heel spurs can include: walking gait (an abnormality that places excessive stress on the heel bone, ligaments and nerves near the heel); running on hard surfaces; ill-fitting shoes (in particular those lacking proper arch support); and carrying excess weight.

Treatments for heel spurs can include stretching exercises and physical therapy; anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections and even surgery.

Heel spurs can easily be prevented and treated through the use of the Barefoot Science Strengthening System. The Barefoot Science insoles help to ease the tension and strain placed on the plantar fascia which heal the damaged tissues and prevent a recurrence of the problem. The insoles allow the arch to stabilize naturally, keeping the heel spur parallel to the ground, and less likely to protrude into surrounding tissue.

Barefoot Science and Metatarsalgia

Pain and inflammation at the ball of the foot (known as the metatarsal) is referred to as metatarsalgia. This type of foot condition is most prevalent in people who participate in sports or activities that involve running or jumping. Ill-fitting shoes can also be a cause of metatarsalgia.

Symptoms typically associated with metatarsalgia are: sharp, aching or burning pain in the ball of the foot (the part of the sole just behind the toes); pain that worsens when standing, ,walking, running or flexing the feet; sharp or shooting pain, numbness or tingling in the toes; and the feeling of having a pebble in your shoe. These symptoms can be brought on by a number of different factors such as: intense training or activity related to a high impact sport (runners are extremely vulnerable to this condition); having a high arch (which puts extra pressure on the metatarsals); foot deformities such as hammertoe and bunions; excess body weight which puts increased pressure on the metatarsals and poorly fitted shoes (such as heels or shoes with narrow toes, or shoes that aren’t well padded); and suffering from conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or gout.

Remedies to aid the pain of metatarsalgia include: resting and elevating the feet after prolonged periods of standing or walking; icing the affected area; taking anti-inflammatory medication; and the use of arch supports or metatarsal pads.

Barefoot Science can remedy this problem through the use of the Barefoot Science insoles.

The insoles also help with shock absorption and arch support helping to minimize problems with metatarsalgia

Barefoot Science Helping out Hammer Toes

For those who may be unfamiliar with this condition, hammer toe is a deformity causing the toe to bend downward instead of pointing forward. While any of the toes can be affected, it’s primarily seen on the second or third toe. While this deformity can be present in some individuals from birth, it is a condition that typically develops over time.
There are two joints in the toe, middle and bottom that allow for it to bend. It is when the middle joint becomes dislocated or misaligned that hammer toe occurs. There are many factors that can contribute to this joint dislocation including:
Trauma caused by injury
-Arthritis
-Unusually high arch in the foot
-Ill-fitting shoes
-Atrophy in the 40 intrinsic foot muscles
-Tightened ligaments from the hip or tendons in the foot —
-Pressure from a bunion;
-Spinal cord or peripheral nerve damage.
All of these factors lead to the fact that the foot is no longer healthy and capable of being self-supportive.
Symptoms of hammer toe can include a curling toe; pain or discomfort in the toes and ball of the foot or on the front of the leg, as well as a thickening of the skin on the affected toe along as well as corns or calluses. Treating the symptoms of hammertoe can consist of warm foot soaks, toe stretches, splinting of the toe, and in extreme cases, surgery to straighten out the toe (which could lead to complications including pain and numbness).
Barefoot Science offers a treatment option for these foot conditions with the use of Barefoot Science insoles to promote balance and the use of foot, lower & upper leg muscles for increased muscle strength, symmetry and flexibility. These features help to maintain long-term foot health as wearing our insoles helps shift the toe’s position, relieving pain and correcting its appearance.
Use of the Barefoot Science Strengthening System is a great preventive measure, not only for hammertoe but other foot and leg afflictions.

Barefoot Science Found Helpful For Bunions

Hallux valgus, otherwise known as bunions, is a deformity of the joint connecting the big toe to the foot.

What is the cause of a Bunion?

Bunions occur after the 40 intrinsic foot muscles, that are responsible for forming the arch, become weak or atrophied as a result of being cushioned, supported or braced with an orthotic from birth. Without a functional arch, the flattened foot and bone structure has nowhere to go but out, creating a bunion. When we take a step the front of the foot naturally stays or gets wider to assist in the gripping and launch process. When you are wearing tight shoes this splaying or gripping action causes the big toe to tap against the side of the shoe which causes the body to lay a protective layer of bone which is why the Bunion grows over time. “When the arch becomes dysfunctional pressure is applied to the side of the hallux (big toe), forcing it inwards, towards and sometimes under or over the other toes.” Continual application of pressure causes the tissues surrounding the joint to swell and become tender. Unless surgically corrected, bunions are permanent. Barefoot Science will stop the growth of bunions and reverse the symptom to a degree. If you do not address the weak foot muscles and form a functional arch after surgery the bunion will reform.

Hallux valgus can have a number of negative effects which include irritated skin around the bunion; pain when walking; joint redness and pain; possible shifting of the big toe towards the other toes; and the formation of blisters around the bunion site.

Problems can range in difficulty from finding proper fitting shoes (people with bunions might often buy larger sizes to accommodate the width the bunion creates), loss of balance and good posture, to severe foot pain even without the constriction of shoes. Because the joint at the base of the big toe carries most of the weight when walking, bunions can cause severe and constant pain. Those who suffer with stiff joints or arthritis can have a difficult time tolerating pain caused from bunions.

Hallux valgus can be hereditary only in people that have worn restrictive footwear from birth. It is an affliction that tends to affect women far more often than men, due to the fashion footwear that they choose to wear over a long period of time.

Treatments for the symptoms of hallux valgus can include wearing a toe spacer or bunion splint; using warm soaks, ice packs, ultrasound and massage; use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; and in extreme cases, surgery.

Barefoot Science Insoles can offer relief to people suffering with hallux valgus. Our non-orthotic strengthening system is the only patented product that proactively protects against bunions and rehabilitates excessive pronation. For people who excessively pronate, the big toe can be pushed toward the other toes as their foot pushes off when they walk or run. This leads to a great amount of degenerative stress at the joint of the big toe which contributes to the formation of bunions.

Just like walking barefoot in the sand or grass every step with Barefoot Science System targets the root cause of Bunions by stimulating , strengthening, and retraining the arch muscles that align the bones of the foot for optimal strength and stability prior to the foot’s contact with the ground. This ensures proper foot position at all times during ground contact, effectively and safely eliminating degenerative stresses. Our insoles not only control excessive pronation but provide extra padding underneath the ball of the foot as well.

The Results are in from our Hospital Testing

A pain study recently conducted by a third party at Toronto East General Hospital (one of Toronto’s busiest hospitals) concluded that the use of the Barefoot Science Foot Strengthen System significantly reduces many types of musculoskeletal pain and fatigue in a working environment involving long periods of weight bearing activity.

This clinical study was conducted on personnel in the hospital’s emergency department (nurses, administrative and medical staff, who, spend most of their work day on their feet, and are physically active). The following findings from the study were reported:

• Significant decrease in fatigue of the foot

• Significant decrease in foot pain

• Significant decrease in overall fatigue

• Significant decrease in knee pain

• Significant decrease in lower back pain

• Significant decrease in shoulder pain

• Decreased pain and discomfort in the knee

• Decreased pain and discomfort in the lower back

• Decreased pain and discomfort in the shoulders

The significant statistics compiled from this study demonstrated clinical declines in pain for the feet (73% of participants), knees, shoulders, and lower back as well as declines for general fatigue (65% of participants). In terms of overall satisfaction with the Barefoot Science Foot Strengthening System, 87.5% of the participants reported they thought it was “great” or “good”.

As expected, muscle activation with resultant exercise and strengthening, produces a more stable foot structure. With increased muscle strength and efficiency also comes increased management of energy within the foot resulting in less muscle fatigue, less soft tissue destruction and improved musculoskeletal alignment. The reason being, that the BFS system addresses the cause of the pain, not just the symptoms, therefore providing long-term relief. The insoles stimulate, strengthen and restore optimal foot function.

This study is further proof that our system significantly reduces many types of musculoskeletal pain and fatigue; that it is proven effective rehabilitation for foot, leg, knee, back and shoulder pain.

Plantar Fasciitis: A Real Pain in the Foot

Patented Barefoot Science Insoles Correct Plantar Fasciitis

A picture of painful female feet over white background

At Barefoot Science we recognize that many ailments stem from the foot. The most common globally reported foot ailment is Plantar Fasciitis.  The ligament connecting the heel bone to the toes is called the plantar fascia, and it is responsible for about 30% of the job of creating a healthy functional arch. There are 40 foot muscles that are responsible for the remaining 70% of the foot and arch function.

In shoe wearing societies, where people have traditionally worn cushioned, supported and braced (Orthotics) since birth, the plantar fascia, not unlike any other muscle group that is supported and cushioned for an extended period of time, becomes weak, atrophied and dysfunctional. This wiry flat band of tissue (that is not designed to be stretched) now becomes stretched and is asked to do 100% of the job rather than its typical 30%.

The result is that the plantar fascia becomes strained, swollen, irritated, inflamed or develops micro tears where it connects to the heel or the front of the foot. This condition is known as Plantar Fasciitis, and it can cause pain (typically a stabbing type pain) in the bottom of the foot near the heel, making it difficult to stand or walk.

The more active an individual is, the greater the load put on this dysfunctional tissue and the greater the chance that you will develop Plantar Fasciitis, which is why his ailment is most prevalent with athletes (runners in particular) and middle aged people. It can also be problematic for people who:

-roll their feet inward too much when walking
-have high arches or flat feet
-stand for long periods of time (especially on hard surfaces)
-are overweight
-wear shoes that are ill fitting or worn out
-who have tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles

For Plantar Fasciitis flare ups, there are a number of ways to relieve the pain immediately. Epsom
salt baths and using a foam roller can help, along with the occasional use of anti inflammatories and shockwave therapy. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S106725160800450X

“The only possible way to cure the cause of Plantar Fasciitis is to rehabilitate the 40 intrinsic foot muscle and take the load off the plantar fascia so it can once again do the 30% job that it was designed to.”
However these solutions only work to treat the symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis while our patented Barefoot Science Insoles treats the cause. If you address both the cause and symptoms at the same time your results will become apparent that much faster.

Rather than treating this foot ailment with medications (which can include steroids), uncomfortable
night splints or boots, traditional orthotics, cortisone shots, or in extreme cases surgery; it can effectively be treated with the
assistance of Barefoot Science. Our insoles, with their patented dome shape, progressively activate
muscles in the soles of the feet and legs, stimulating contractions that strengthen and elevate the
arch of the foot. As you progress through the adaptation or rehabilitation phase of BFS the heightened, functional arch will become self supportive again and able to handle the daily stresses of body weight and movement, improving strength and increasing balance. The pain is relieved and athletic or movement performance is improved.

Barefoot Science Another Tool for Treatment of Diabetic Neuropathy

One of the most common ailments for those with Type II Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy can cause numbness and tingling, poor balance, cold feet, ulcers and infections, resulting in amputations and even death if left untreated for too long. Peer review studies have concluded that a domed insole is the ultimate insole for individuals suffering from diabetes.

Barefoot Science Insoles, in conjunction with other lifestyle changes including diet, exercise, quitting smoking, as well as regular checkups with the doctor, can help keep the feet healthy and strong.

Without Barefoot Science Insoles, those with Type II Diabetes can experience plantar pressure which can lead to painful ulcers.  Barefoot Science Insoles are designed with a unique dome shape which stimulates the muscles in the soles of the feet to evenly spread out weight distribution, leading to more structural integrity, with a lessening of pressure hotspots that can contribute to ulcers. The result is a more confident gait, less pain, and a return to better mobility!

Most products designed to help the feet work by bracing, cushioning and supporting the foot.  Barefoot Science is different, because it stimulates the foot to increase circulation and strengthens the foot.  Improved circulation and strength not only helps to prevent, but can reverse the effects of Diabetic Neuropathy, helping to restore foot health.

In addition to improved circulation and foot strength, Barefoot Science users will begin to see improved mobility and pain reduction throughout the body, making exercise more enjoyable.  As well, through improved strength and mobility, better balance, alignment and posture is achieved.

We love to hear about clients who have had success with the Barefoot Science Foot Strengthening System.  One of our latest success stories is from Kevin.  See his story below.

Client – Kevin Lewis
– age 55
– Type II Diabetic diagnosed at age 49
– Licensed City Operator

Kevin came to us with several symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathy, which was causing considerable discomfort:
• throbbing knee pain when sitting
• ultra-cold feet at all times but especially when in bed at night (severely restricted blood flow to and from the extremities)
• constantly achy legs from knees down at work and home – had been wearing orthotics consistently with no relief
• constant tingling and discomfort in all of his toes

Kevin started on Level 1 in the therapeutic 7-step full length Barefoot Science System in early March, 2016, and immediately noticed activation from his feet up through his legs to his buttocks, back and shoulders.  Despite having to wear heavy, steel-toed boots all day at his work, Kevin found he was less fatigued at the end of the day within the first week of wearing the inserts.

Today, Kevin is now using a level 5 insert and feels much better:
✔no more throbbing knee pain when sitting
✔no more cold feet – especially at night
✔no longer needs to wear socks at night to keep feet warm
✔no more achy legs from the knees down
✔no more orthotics
✔no more pins and needles discomfort in toes

Kevin says he feels more energized, sleeps better and more relaxed at home as well as at work. He will continue to progress to level 7 and NEVER go without his Barefoot-Science inserts!

We have seen many, many success stories like Kevin’s over the years, and we love to hear feedback from our clients on how Barefoot Science has helped them treat the symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathy, and restore movement and balance.  Click here to read more, and email us with your stories too!

Testimonials:
“I have been a Type 1 diabetic for 31 years and as such have experienced some of the complications of this difficult disease. These have included diabetic neuropathy in my feet causing them to feel numb, to have some atrophy of the muscles and to generally be cold due to poor circulation. In addition to these complications, I have also suffered from flat feet, pronation of the left ankle and ongoing foot, ankle, knee and hip pain for most of my life. To counter this I had been wearing in-shoe custom orthotics as recommended by my physician.

As a 39 year old mother of two boys and with a busy career, I have often wondered and worried about my foot health. The custom orthotics seemed to be a kind of answer when it came to straightening my ankle and reducing some of the pain caused by this misalignment, but the side effects of positioning my feet in the hard orthotics actually increased the numbness, lack of circulation and muscle atrophy that the neuropathy was already causing. (Not to mention the need to purchase expensive, wide-fitting and not necessarily attractive shoes that could accommodate the orthotic.)

The experience of wearing the Barefoot insoles has been not only eye-opening, but foot changing. Within the first hour of having the insoles in my shoes – at level one of course – I began having more feeling in my feet than I’ve had for a very long time. My feet felt good – in fact they were beginning to feel warm.

It really was amazing. The other things that have surprised me now that I’ve worn them for two years, are the fact that they are extremely comfortable – providing cushioning to my feet which can be tender, they have not – as I was afraid they might – caused my ankle to turn or be painful. In fact, my ankles, legs, knees and hips feel great – not unsupported.

I wear my Barefoot Science insoles in my shoes every day, but I can now also spend time barefoot and in shoes – such as summer sandals – without them and not have the painful, swollen ankles and sore feet that I used to get when not wearing shoes with my orthotics. Obviously the “foot strengthening” promise is true.

Lastly, I have gained some mobility back. I could not, for example, curl the toes on my left foot without causing a massive cramp in my foot or calf – and sometimes I couldn’t really move them at all. I can curl my toes any time I want to now.

It’s amazing what you will learn to live with because you’ve been told that it’s the best solution – or only solution. In hindsight, I’m somewhat incredulous that I could accept the side effects of my custom orthotics as okay. As a diabetic you are constantly told not to wear things that are too tight, that cut off circulation or that don’t allow freedom of movement. So why is it acceptable to put our feet into hard, molded orthotics that do all of the things we’re not supposed to?

My feet are integral to carrying me through life and I don’t want to lose them to amputation. Particularly if you are a diabetic – and even if you’re not – I urge you to see the amazing difference the Barefoot Science inserts will make to your mobility.” – Sarah Wilkins, July 2012

“I am a 68 year old male, diagnosed with Type II diabetes 14 years ago. Throughout my life I have had foot issues, first because of having flat feet, then later because of diabetes. I bought numerous off-the-shelf insoles in an attempt to ease the foot pain Iʼve experienced much of my life due to persistent issues with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the plantar muscle in the foot. Finally, I tried podiatrist-prescribed shoe inserts that I wore for approximately two years; however, my foot issues continued. The doctor-prescribed inserts were hard and provided no cushioning, no stability, no pain relief. It felt like I was wearing thick braces for my feet. I continued to have plantar muscle issues. I also found it difficult to buy shoes that would work well with the thick inserts. I was at my witʼs end. Then I heard about Barefoot Science.

When I first learned of Barefoot Science insoles, I was skeptical, having tried the many off-the-shelf insoles and the very expensive doctor-prescribed inserts. But, I thought, what can I lose? Upon purchasing my first pair of Barefoot Science insoles, I hurried home to try the product. I followed the instructions provided with the insoles and I put them in my cross-training shoes, starting with Level 1, as recommended. The moment my feet touched the ground, I knew I had something different. The insoles werenʼt hard. They felt natural. For the first time in many years, my feet felt planted, stable, even strengthened. What a great feeling! I no longer had to walk gingerly to ease the pain.

I have been wearing the Barefoot Science insoles for over a year. I am now at Barefoot Science Level 5, which works best for me, and my feet feel great. They feel strengthened. I no longer have issues with plantar fasciitis. I have increased stability. Even my posture has improved because I feel more stable, with less sway. I now manage my Type II diabetes through regular visits to an endocrinologist, by counting carbohydrates, by eating well-balanced low carb meals, and by regularly exercising. This resulted in a significant decrease in amounts of medication required, and I have no diagnosed neuropathy. Medical tests on my feet show strong circulation throughout my feet.

Barefoot Science has made a world of difference to my feet, to my overall stability, to my posture, and to my ability to withstand strenuous workouts. I now wear Barefoot Science insoles in all my shoes. They work as well in my dress shoes as they do in my workout shoes. Now, at the gym and elsewhere, I happily recommend the Barefoot Science System to my fellow workout partners and to my friends. This is a product that works.” – Roger McBee, Wimberley, Texas

Strong Glutes: Not Just For Speedo Season!

It’s a happy coincidence that Barefoot Science Insoles work to strengthen the body from the ground up – all the way to your glutes!

And having strong glutes isn’t just for looking great in your swimsuit.  When your glutes are activated, not only are you looking strong and lean, you’re also boosting your athletic ability, too.

So walking barefoot on the beach isn’t just great for working on your tan. You’re gaining the benefits of building a strong kinetic chain.  Research shows that walking barefoot in the sand or grass has the natural effect of improving the gait, by turning on the foot, leg, glutes and back.  Wearing Barefoot Science Insoles has a similar effect to wearing no shoes at all. You’re strengthening your foot, increasing proprioception, and improving your bikini bottom, all at the same time.

Whether you run, bike, hike, ski, golf, – or anything, really – glutes are your ‘power muscles’.  When they are strong, they will propel your movement and stabilize your body for all of life’s activities.  When they are weak, it will lead to countless problems.

With the unique dome-shaped insole, Barefoot Science stimulates the muscles in the feet, strengthening the arch, and creating new neural pathways to improve proprioception and balance.  Each week, a new insert is placed into the dome, giving the foot a new level of challenge.

As the muscles in the feet respond, there is a cascade effect that leads all the way up your body, strengthening and stabilizing.  The end result can be seen in your end: your glutes will appear stronger, lifted and ready to move!

Nice Glutes

Brad Muir on Barefoot Science Insoles


What is Plantar Fasciitis?


Barefoot Science Therapeutic Foot Care Insoles


Experts are saying...

Barefoot Science insoles are the best I have ever come across including a $500 pair I have from a foot doctor. I think I originally saw them on an infomercial either on line or on TV. I have them in every pair of shoes and sneakers I own. They have improved my overall arch health dramatically since I began using them. They also last a long time as you can see from the time I placed my last order for 5 in 2010. Hopefully the company continues offering this great product in the future. Thanks again for your help.

William Westberg, Specialty Division Account Executive, Division of LFUSA

Customers are saying...

First and foremost, I am absolutely thrilled, and I mean thrilled, with your product. My problem foot has not felt this good in 25 years, and I am just astonished that your insoles could accomplish so easily what a zillion visits to 'experts' and a zillion dollars for custom orthotics could not. I admit to being a little skeptical when my wife first came across your product online (I am not usually persuaded by TV infomercial type of stuff) but the many online comments (mostly very positive) about the insoles and your own very prompt and comprehensive responses to my inquiries sold me initially, and the rest is history. My only fears going forward are either you change the design or you choose another line of work and your business closes!! Hopefully neither will happen and you enjoy continued success and prosperity.
