The Achilles Heel Pad has a soft gel pad inside a comfortable, stretchy fabric sleeve that protects the Achilles tendon and back of the heel from friction, while gently compressing and reducing pressure around sore areas. Washable and reusable, each pad can be worn over and over again. The thin design makes it ideal for use in all styles of footwear. Universal right/left. By Myfootshop.com. 1/pkg.
- S/M: Women & Men
- L/XL: Men or Women. The main difference between sizes is the length of the gel from top to bottom vs. the diameter of the sleeve.
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.
