Gel heel pads for bursitis
Bursae are tiny fluid-filled sacs found near all the joints in the body, cushioning and protecting the different parts of the joint as you move. Inflammation of the bursae is known as bursitis.
The pain, swelling and irritation associated with bursitis can be reduced by using gel heel inserts, which will encourage better foot mechanics and improve the amount of support and cushioning for your feet.
Gel heel pads for lower back pain
If you can’t recall an incident that may have injured your lower back, but you’re still experiencing pain in this region, it may be down to your feet, as foot pain can create problems with the back, as well as the ankles, hips and knees.
The cushioning and shock absorption features of our gel heel pads should alleviate some of this lower back pain, providing much-needed support and reducing the impact on your heel.
Gel heel pads for knee pain
If you’ve had foot pain for a while, and you’re also experiencing a pain in your knee, the two could very well be connected.
As a first step to alleviating any knee pain, try using our gel heel pads which, with their combination of cushioning, support and ability to reduce impact on the heel, may very well reduce any discomfort you’re feeling.
When you should see a doctor for heel pain
While heel pain often goes away on its own with a little TLC, there are circumstances in which you should seek the help of your doctor.
If you’re experiencing severe pain and swelling near your heel, or if you can’t bend your foot downward or walk in a normal way, consult a doctor immediately.
Similarly, do so if your heel pain is accompanied by a fever or any tingling or numbness in the heel area.
While not so urgent, you should also make an appointment with a doctor if heel pain continues when you're not walking or standing or if it lasts more than a few weeks.
