The Achilles Heel Pad has a soft gel pad inside soft stretchy fabric that protects the Achilles tendon and back of heel from friction while gently compressing and reducing pressure around sore areas. Washable and re-usable pads, each pad can be used over and over again. Thin design makes it ideal for use in all styles of footwear. 1/pkg.
- S/M: Women & Men
- L/XL: Men or Women. The main difference in the 2 sizes is mainly the length of the gel from top to bottom versus the diameter.
Indications - The Achilles Heel Pad is used in the treatment of Achilles tendonitis, rehabilitation of Achilles tendon tears, calcaneal bursitis, heel pain, and Haglund's deformity (pump bump).
Foot Care Tip - Heel position significantly affects Achilles tendinitis. Low-heeled shoes and going barefoot increase the mechanical load applied by calf muscles to the Achilles tendon. Be sure your treatment plan for Achilles tendinitis includes avoiding low-heeled shoes and going barefoot. A heel lift worn with the Achilles Heel Pad can cut your healing time in half. Also, be sure to ice the Achilles tendon before and after exercise.
