Heel & Ankle Pain
Achilles tendonitis is a painful condition of the tendon which joins the calf muscle to the heel, causing inflammation, stiffness, aching and pressure sensitivity in the ankle/heel area. Our selection of silicone heel pads and cups can help to reduce pressure on the heel when walking, running and jumping. Ankle and heel compression sleeves can help to reduce swelling and provide additional support for the ankle.
Plantar fasciitis happens when the plantar fascia (a long thin ligament directly beneath the skin on the bottom of the foot) receives damage and causes inflammation. This inflammation can result in heel pain and stiffness. Silicone heel protectors in the shape of gel heel pads and cups will cushion the heel during heel strike to minimise the pressure put on the plantar fascia whilst it is healing.
The gel/silicone in our gel heel cushions and sleeves with pads contain moisturising mineral oils which are slowly absorbed into the skin, helping to limit the risk of cracked heels and dry skin.
