Heel Cups

a heel cup can make all the difference...
A heel cup is an orthopedic device that helps treat ailments affecting the heel of the foot. Heel cups are also known as heel pads, shoe inserts, and orthotic inserts. The popularity of a heel cup as a form of heel pain treatment is due to its simplicity, affordability, and the generally positive results that a heel cup can have on a painful foot condition.

The most common ailments heel cups treat are plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, and bursitis. Plantar fasciitis is by far the most common cause of heel pain, accounting for millions of cases each year. Heel cups are among the most effective treatments for this type of condition, as they help to re-stretch the plantar fascia ligament along the bottom of the foot. In addition, the heel cup adds additional support, and helps to absorb additional shock and pressure as we walk, run, and lift objects. A heel cup can also redistribute the footís fat pad surrounding the heel, helping to promote natural cushioning.

There are many heel cup alternatives available. Unfortunately, many devices are cumbersome and awkward to wear and apply. In addition, these splints and braces can often become very expensive despite the mediocre results. The low cost and ease of a heel cup, and reliable results, are some of the main benefits to using such as device to treat painful symptoms associated with heel conditions.

Whether you are suffering from acute aching, or sharp, chronic pain, a heel cup is designed to help you get on your feet again! As you wear them, heel cups help to minimize symptoms and help to treat the source of discomfort. Donít be stopped by heel pain any longer, and find relief with heel cups that donít just mask pain temporarily, but actually work and provide long-term relief!
