Our heel gel pads help to cushion and support the heel, helping protect it from shocks and relieves pressure from the heel that may cause aches, soreness,pain or injury.
There are numerous causes to heel pain, such as being on your feet all day allowing pressure to build up under your heel. Sometimes the causes could be due to certain injuries or conditions such as an inflamed Achilles tendon known as Achilles tendinitis or due to plantar fasciitis. Build up of pressure can cause these conditions to develop or to get even worse.
Plantar fasciitis is a fairly common injury in sports but you don’t need to be into sports to develop this painful condition. Overuse of the feet such as being on your feet all day can inflame the plantar fascia which is connected to the achilles heel. Plantar fasciitis which is known to cause heel spurs can make the heel more sensitive to pressure and shocks resulting in pain on the heel. Cushioning the heel and protecting the feet from the build up of pressure can help heal plantar fasciitis and get you back on your feet again.
Plantar fasciitis isn’t the only reason for heel pain as another common cause is Achilles tendinitis! The Achilles tendon connects the heel bone to your calf muscles and helps with movement in the foot, from overuse or a sudden shock to the Achilles tendon can cause it to become inflamed and this is what is known as Achilles tendinitis. As we get older the Achilles tendon also weakens and becomes more susceptible to tendinitis. Those suffering from Achilles tendinitis usually make a full recovery but the condition can be very painful to have and can make life a lot more difficult. You may find that the Achilles is more sensitive and painful first thing in the morning when you have not used your feet in a while this is because the Achilles tendon become tighter as a result of not being used then the sudden shift to everyday life on your feet can be too much for the Achilles tendon to handle. Suffering from Achilles tendinitis will mean you Achilles tendon will be less able to take your weight and the pressure will cause heel pain.
