Theses heel cups have been purposefully developed to help to the strain off your heels and correct biomechanical imbalances that may cause injuries to occur.
One of the the most common causes of heel pain in adults is because of a foot injury called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can cause sharp stabbing pains in the arch and heel of the foot. This foot condition is often triggered through repetitive shock and pressure to the plantar fascia ligament found in your foot. This ligament is designed to support your arch and heel and help pronate your foot when you walk. If this ligament becomes damaged it becomes inflamed and can no longer function properly. Heel cups will help to restore proper function to your plantar fascia by taking strain off the arch and heel via orthotic support. This prevents further damage to the foot helping to ease foot and heel pain and boost recovery as a result.
