  • HEEL DISCOMFORT

    The heel is the first bone to contact the ground when walking and takes the full force of impact and the resulting shock of bearing weight during motion, resulting sometimes in sore heel pain. General heel pain tends to dissipate overnight and can reappear or worsen during prolonged periods of walking or standing. The pain is commonly intense when getting out of bed or a chair but often lessens when walking ā€“ although that is more common in the case of Plantar Fasciitis.

With each step you take, yourĀ heelĀ pounds the ground and puts tension on your plantar fascia.Ā Heel cupsĀ —Ā heel-shapedĀ pads that go in your shoes — may help. They raise your heelĀ to relieve tension and give you extra cushion. They often don’tĀ workĀ as well as inserts, but they’re a cheap option to try.

When dievca was hit by a car while biking, these heel cushions helped with the heel fracture recovery. dievca has also used them with plantar fasciitis.Ā  They were useful with her calf tear and making certain shoes fit more properly to avoid Achilles microtears.

Note: dievca doesn’t use the heel cushions constantly. They come into play for relief of symptoms but are removed when pain and flexibility/loading are needed for healing and strengthening.
