Need a Little Extra Support?

At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we know that low or fallen arches are a serious condition that can affect many aspects of foot health. As a Podiatrist, the designer of our products, Dr. Jill Scheur, has seen many times how biomechanical problems in your foot can lead to debilitating foot conditions. Flat feet (or fallen arches) put additional stress on the plantar fascia and contribute to heel pain. They can cause your foot to overpronate and lead to metatarsalgia and create other issues that cause pain and discomfort in the ball of the foot as well.

Arch Supports

One way of dealing with these types of foot disorders is by correcting the functioning and positioning of the foot. Arch supports are an excellent way to do this. Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads offers several options:

Gel Arch Pads—these soft gel supports feature self-stick cushions for easy application and can be used in all styles of footwear. They come in two different thicknesses, so you are assured a comfortable fit. The Gel Arch Pads are latex free and can be used over and over again. Simply wash and allow to air dry for long-lasting wear.

Arch Steppers—designed with a scientifically contoured arch, these flexible supports provide long-lasting comfort for achy, weak and tired legs. The Arch Steppers come in two sizes and are ¾ length, which means extra room in the toe area. Lightweight and durable, the Arch Steppers have a base that is microbial and anti-bacterial. They can be used in nearly all styles of footwear, including most dress styles.

Arch Binder—this elastic sleeve slides over the arch providing gently yet firm compression. It helps to lift the arch and support the plantar fascia and relieves arch and heel pain. The arch binder also supports the forefoot. One size fits most and it can be worn on either the right or left foot.

Low arches are one of the many foot problems that Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads can help with. To see all of our products, view our online catalog or visit our Deerfield Beach, FL store. Need assistance? Contact us by calling: (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723).

Help for Crooked Toes

Crooked Toes

Toe deformities are a common condition that Podiatrists treat and we at Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads have many products that can help. Some of the better-known toe conditions that result in a crooked or bent toe are hammertoe, bunion and claw toe. In most cases, a toe moving out of its normal position is the result of a biomechanical malfunction such as a muscle tendon imbalance. This can be a hereditary condition or the result of an injury or a joint disease. Wearing shoes that don’t fit properly can make toe issues worse.

Footwear, however, is a problem regardless when it comes to crooked toes. Shoes are not designed to accommodate toes that are bent or out of place. Patients with these disorders find they also experience secondary pain and discomfort from the friction and pressure caused by a shoe on the deformed toe.

Below are some products that can help straighten toes and relieve pain:

Budin Splints—constructed of sturdy yet comfortable foam and elastic materials, a Budin Splint gently straightens a bent toe, allowing it to lie straight. This stops the friction on the top and tip of the toe and relieves pain from blisters and corns. We offer Budin Splints for one, two or three toes. This product allows patients to bear weight normally and can help prevent hammertoes from getting worse. Budin Splints are latex free.

Toe Separators—for toes that are pressing up against each other and trying to overlap, we have soft foam separators that compress easily and slip between your toes to cushion sore spots. Toe Separators prevent toes from rubbing against one another.

Triple Toe Gel Crest Pad—this comfortable pad made of soft, stretchy premier gel can hold 3 toes in place and prevent them from overlapping. Worn with the toe crest under the toes, it lifts up the tips of the toes to straighten and align them properly. Worn with the toe crest on top of the toes, it can hold 3 toes down and keep them straight. When used this way, it also can provide a protective barrier between the toes and the shoe.

These are just a few of the many products we offer to help with crooked toes. For more information, contact us by calling: (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723) or visit our Deerfield Beach, FL store.

Relief for Ball of Foot Pain

Ball of Foot

At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we know that there are several conditions that can result in pain in the ball of your foot. Some of these include:

  • Fat Pad Atrophy—as part of the aging process, the fat pad on the ball of the foot naturally begins to decrease. This can lead to a loss of cushioning and soreness in that part of the foot.
  • Neuroma—a thickening of the nerve tissue on the bottom of the foot can cause irritation and enlargement of the nerve making it painful to bear weight.
  • Metatarsalgia—the heads of the metatarsal bones that run from your arch to your toe joints can become inflamed when too much stress is put on this area. Oftentimes this will happen when your foot is not able to distribute weight evenly. Deformities such as bunions or hammertoes can also put extra stress on the ball of your foot.

When you are experiencing pain in the ball of your foot, regardless of the cause, your goal is to get relief. We offer products that will do just that.

Gel Ball of Foot Cushions

Soft Gel Ball of Foot Cushions reduce pressure on painful spots when walking or standing. These pads come in two different thicknesses. Talk to your Podiatrist and/or Medical Professional about the thickness and best positioning of the pad based on your foot condition. These pads can be used with any style of footwear and have a self-stick backing which makes them easy to apply. Soft Gel Ball Foot Cushions are re-useable. Simply wash with a mild soap and water and allow the pad to dry completely.

Gel Dancers Pads

Another product that produces similar results is our Gel Dancers Pads. These have a cut out that surrounds the area under the designated metatarsal head on the ball of the foot to redistribute weight onto the pad and away from the painful area. These pads also come in two thicknesses to ensure a comfortable fit. You can use our Gel Dancer Pads over and over again.

In addition, we also offer felt Metatarsal Pads, felt Dancers Pads in 1/4” and 1/8” and other products to help with metatarsal pain. To see all of our products, visit our online catalog. You can order metatarsal pads by calling: (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723) or stop by our Deerfield Beach store.

Dr. Jill’s Protection for Painful Corns

 

Corns are a secondary condition that form as the result of repeated pressure on skin from another foot problem. When you have a bunion, hammertoe or other foot deformity, it causes footwear to rub and put pressure on a spot on your toe or foot. Over time, a corn may form. Eventually, the underlying problem that is causing the corn needs to be treated in order for the corn to be eliminated. Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads offer a number of solutions that can bring relief to painful corns.

Gel Corn Pads—a soft fabric sleeve containing gel inside is expandable and therefore easily stretches to slip over your toe. The gel provides cushioning which protects the corn and relieves pain. An added bonus, Gel Corn Pads release moisturizers onto the hardened skin to soften and relieve discomfort of the problem area. Our Gel Corn Pads are breathable and allow air to circulate. They are washable and can be re-used multiple times in all types of footwear.

All Gel Toe Tubes—these soft gel tubes are 4 ½ inches long and can be custom cut to any size needed. Also washable and re-usable, these tubes protect the toe and provide a barrier between the foot and your shoes. All Gel Toe Tubes come in 5 sizes to ensure a comfortable fit.

All Gel Toe Caps—one-size cap is designed to slip over the top of toes 2, 3, 4, or 5 (not the big toe). The All Gel Toe Caps insulate the toes against shock and pressure and they have a padded toe tip, which provides extra comfort. The gel slowly releases mineral oil to soften and moisturize the skin. These too are washable and re-usable.

The pad you choose will depend on the location and severity of the corn. You should never apply a gel pad to an open wound and pads should be removed for at least 3-4 hours each day to allow the skin to breathe. To see other products that can help with this and other podiatric problems, view our online catalog or contact us by calling: (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723).

Help for Plantar Fasciitis Sufferers

At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that many patients suffer from plantar fasciitis—an inflammation of the long tendon that runs along the bottom of your foot, the plantar fascia.

Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:

  • Pain on the bottom of your heel
  • Arch pain
  • Swelling of the heel

In most cases, the pain is usually worse when you first get up in the morning and when you are very active and on your feet for long periods of time. There are multiple causes of this condition but among the most common is fallen arches or flat feet. We offer several products that can ease the discomfort of plantar fasciitis by cushioning the heel and giving support to the arch. These include:

Heel Cup

Our heel cup cushions and protects the heel. It offers long-lasting comfort and relief from heel pain. Our Gel Heel Cup contains gel cushions that go between your heel and bottom of the shoe, providing shock absorption and padding. The pads are re-usable. Simply hand wash with mild soap and water and allow to air dry. They come in multiple sizes to fit men and women and can be used in all styles of footwear. Another product that also gives some cushioning and reduces strain to the plantar fascia is our Plantar Fascial Straps made of moleskin.

Arch Support

Proper support of the arch is essential for patients with plantar fasciitis. Helping the arch maintain its appropriate shape reduces the pressure on the plantar fascia and thereby decreases heel pain and discomfort. Our Plantar Fasciitis Arch Sleeve has a gel pad that is held in place by a comfortable elastic sleeve and gives support to the arch of the foot. The Plantar Fasciitis Arch Sleeve is easy to slip on and also absorbs shock with every step. It can be worn with or without shoes.

Our Arch Binder goes around the center of the foot and provides gentle compression to the arch. This comfortably lifts and supports the plantar fascia, thereby relieving pain in the heel. The Arch Binder fits either the left or right foot.

Both the Arch Binder and the Plantar Fasciitis Arch Sleeve are hand washable and can be used over and over again.

Padding Provides Relief from Bunion Pain

At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we know that when the cooler days of fall arrive, more patients will be looking for ways to decrease the pain caused by bunions. Bunions are a deformity of the joint at the base of the big toe. They are most often caused by defective foot mechanics but can also be the result of an injury or arthritis. Whatever the reason, when you have a bunion, the big toe begins to move out of place and drift toward the second toe. Over time, the misalignment of the joint causes a bony protrusion to form on the outside of your big toe. During summer months many people are wearing sandals and other open front styles of shoes. When it’s time to go back to wearing closed shoe styles, the pain from a bunion will seem worse than ever.

Products That Can Help

We have several products that can help with bunion pain. Below, we highlight just a few:

Foam Toe Tubes—this product offers a soft, seamless cotton lining surrounded by spongy foam outer layers. These protect and cushion a bunion from the pressure and friction caused by shoes. The Foam Toe Tubes are designed to fit any size or shape toe. They can be cut to the desired length for a perfect fit. A picture instruction sheet is included in every box.

Gel Bunion Cushion—these flexible cushions feature a soft and stretchy loop that fits over your toe with a gel pad that covers the bunion. The Gel Bunion Cushion will conform to the shape of your bunion and will not get tight. It can be used in all types of footwear. Another benefit of these cushions is that they are reusable. Simply wash with a mild soap and water and allow to dry completely to use again and again. Gel Bunion Cushions are available in two thicknesses: regular and extra thick.

Felt Bunion Pad—this slip-on Felt Bunion Pad has a circle cut out that gets placed over the bunion. The sturdy felt keeps pressure off the bunion and provides a barrier between your foot and your footwear.

Gel Bunion Sleeve—this sleeve made of soft, satin fabric provides superior cushioning for bunions. Slip on the gel bunion sleeve over your big toe with ease and get immediate relief from pressure. The soft gel pad conforms to your foot without creating a bulk in your shoe. This product is washable and can be worn on either foot.

These are just a few of the products we offer to help ease the pain and discomfort of bunions. Shop our online catalog to see all of our foot care products. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us by calling (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723) or visit our Deerfield Beach, FL store.

These incredibly comfortable insoles have several distinct advantages:

Memory Fit—because they are made of memory foam, the insoles will mold to the unique shape of your feet. This means you get a memory fit every time after the initial wearing. This custom cushioning will provide a layer of protective comfort for the ball or heel of your foot.

Versatile—Memory Foam Insoles can be used in all type of footwear and shoes, including most dress styles. The insoles are sold in two sizes: Men (8-13) and Women (5-10). Simply trim the insoles to fit the inside of your shoes.

Durable—our Memory Foam Insoles are lightweight and durable. If necessary, the insole can be handwashed using water and a mild soap. Rinse thoroughly and allow the insole to air dry completely. Then, re-insert into your shoe and use again.

As with all foot pads, never place this product on an open wound. Should you experience any discomfort or pain when using the Memory Foam Insoles, discontinue use immediately. Notify your foot doctor as well.

All of our foot products are designed by our experienced podiatrist, Dr. Jill Scheur, so you can trust that they are safe and effective for your foot problems.

3 Ways to Ease Achilles Pain

 

Your Achilles tendon runs along the back of your lower leg, connecting your heel bone to your calf muscle. Although it is one of the strongest tendons in your body, it is also one of the most frequently injured.

Achilles tendonitis and tendonosis occur when the tendon becomes inflamed. Considered an “overuse injury,” Achilles tendonitis affects both serious athletes and “weekend warriors.” Some activities that put strain on the tendon are running—particularly sprints, which cause you to push off forcefully, stair stepping and hill climbing. Any sudden increase in intensity or duration of repetitive activities that put stress on the tendon can result in inflammation. Symptoms of an Achilles disorder include pain anywhere along the tendon, tenderness and/or a feeling of tiredness or sluggishness in the lower leg.

Relieving and Protecting

At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we have 3 ways to help relieve the pain and strain on the Achilles tendon. These products, all designed by a highly experienced podiatrist, can help reduce the strain on the tendon and lessen pain:

  1. Achilles Heel Sleeve—this sleeve fits over your foot and covers it from above the ankle to the middle of your foot. Made of a soft fabric with gel pads inside to cushion the back of the heel area, the Achilles Heel Sleeve protects the affected part of the heel and leg from friction while gently compressing and reducing pressure around the sore areas. The sleeve is washable, and the pads can be re-used over and over again. It comes in 2 sizes, S/M and L/XL, and is suitable for use with all types of footwear.
  2. Heel Lifts—these are often recommended by podiatrists to reduce stress on the tendon while it heals. Heel lifts help your tendon to be stretched less and therefore more relaxed. We offer 3 types of heel lifts: PPT, Cork and Adjustable Heel Lifts, which are made of resilient rubber. With the adjustable heel lifts you can peel off one or two layers to adjust the heel height for maximum comfort. Heel lifts come in various thicknesses and a number of different styles.
  3. Heel Pads—these come in two sizes, J-22 and J-64. Heel pads also offer cushioning for protection and comfort to those suffering with Achilles tendon issues.
