Heel cups are made from a soft, shock absorbing silicone based pad designed to relieve the heel pain and ankle discomfort many people experience throughout the day.
Our heels bear a huge proportion of our body weight when standing but, have to withstand enormous extra pressure when walking and running. This extra pressure can easily cause stress injuries in athletes however,as the body becomes older and the bones become more fragile, muscles and ligaments become tighter and less able to cope with normal activities therefore pain and injury can become more commonplace especially around the heel and ankle area.
Heel pads are a simple and highly effective way of dissipating this extra pressure, relieving the pain and preventing any further damage that may occur.
Silicone heel cups will also help stabilise the heel, keeping it in a comfortable position, improving overall posture and easing extra pressure on ankles and knee joints, making straining of the Achilles tendon far less likely. They are also effective in the prevention and treatment of plantar fasciitis.
Easily positioned in the shoe, our heel pads have a gentle natural adhesive property that will keep the pad in place during normal activity during the day.
Before using, or if symptoms persist, we would always recommend consulting your doctor.
