Indications - Gel Heel Pads With Removable Center are used in the treatment of Baxter's nerve entrapment, heel pain, heel spur syndrome, plantar fasciitis and Sever's disease.
Foot Care Tip - Use a heel lift with a calf-stretching program to treat plantar fasciitis pain and Achilles tendonitis. Need more information to decide which heel lift is best for you? Be sure to read our blog post entitled, 'Which heel pad is right for me - relative hardness of heel pads and heel cushions.'
I lost the removable center pad. Can I buy just the removable pad and not the entire heel cushion?
The small removable gel pad is not sold separately. I think the Gel Heel Pad would be just as comfortable and useful without the small pad. Personal preference on your part.
I need a heel lift to compensate for loss of length in my right leg due to an operation.
For leg length discrepency, we recommend our heel lifts that are made of firm cork or rubber, as they aren't as malleable as these gel heel pads.
I would like to try as part of treatment for Sever's disease. However, I may need to trim pad to fit ballet slipper. Can these be trimmed to fit?
They are trimmable since the enitre heel pad is made of gel. Just remember that they cannot be returned once they've bee modified.
