Crooked toes, hammertoes, bunions—at Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we know that toe deformities can be a source of pain and disability for many patients. If you suffer from a toe disorder, you should be under the treatment of a Podiatrist. The foot doctor will help track down the source of your toe deformity and prescribe the best treatment for you. There are a number of conservative and surgical solutions for toe deformities. Your choice of footwear can also play a key role in the progression of your disorder. Be sure to choose shoes that have a roomy toe box. Styles that squeeze toes together or are too short in the toe box can all exacerbate toe deformities, leading to increased discomfort and secondary conditions such as corns. At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we have a number of products that can help:
Wrap Straps—this simple yet effective conservative treatment can be used for re-positioning overlapping toes, hammertoes or crooked toes.

Do you love to wear fashion boots? Are you experiencing arch or heel pain or do your feet just feel tired and achy overall? At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that if you answered yes to both questions, there may be a connection there. Fashion boots are notorious for not providing adequate arch support. Long hours spent in this style of footwear can leave your feet hurting. When the arch of your foot is not properly supported, it puts stress on the plantar fascia—a long band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot from your heel to your toes. This can increase the risk for plantar fasciitis, the most common source of heel pain. At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we offer several products that can provided increased support for your arches.
Arch Binder—this elastic sleeve provides gentle compression to the arch of the foot and comfortably lifts and supports the plantar fascia. It slips easily over the foot and relieves pain in both the arch and the heel. The Arch Binder fits the left or right foot. It is washable and can be re-used over and over.
Gel Arch Pads—soft gel supports fallen arches and helps with pronation related foot problems by enabling you to maintain proper foot position. Gel Arch Pads are self-stick for easy application and designed to be used in all styles of footwear. Available in two thickness choices to ensure a comfortable fit. These latex-free pads are also washable.
Arch Steppers—patients with weak, tired arches and those suffering with plantar fasciitis will appreciate the flexible support of Arch Steppers. These lightweight and durable supports take up only minimal space in shoes. An added bonus, they are anti-microbial and anti-bacterial.

November is American Diabetes Month. At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that patients with diabetes have many special foot health needs. Conditions associated with diabetes—neuropathy, poor circulation and decreased immune system functioning. This can have a detrimental impact on the skin, joints and bones in your feet. We believe all patients with diabetes should be under the care of a Podiatrist to help prevent dangerous wounds and ulcers and promote good podiatric health. One line of products that we offer that can be of particular aid to diabetic patients are our insoles.
Insoles can provide cushioning and padding which eases pressure on feet and joints. Good insoles can provide extra shock absorption and decrease the effects of repeated pounding on the feet which is a result of everyday walking. Some types of insoles limit foot movement which can decrease the risk of friction that causes blisters and skin irritation. Limiting movement of the foot within the shoe can also decrease stress on certain joints and slow the progression of deformities. Some insoles to consider include:
Memory Mold Insoles—lightweight and durable, this memory foam forms a custom fit for extreme comfort in any footwear, including most dress styles.
Gel Insoles Velvet Top –these insoles have a smooth, velvet silky top which makes for easy slip-on with socks. They provide comfort when wearing most types of shoes and can be trimmed for a perfect fit.
Gel Silicone Insoles Premier Full Length—made from medical grade Silicone, our Gel Silicone Insoles Premier Full Length provide maximum shock absorption and cushioning. These hard-wearing insoles will not bottom out. They are latex-free and washable. Insoles are transferable between shoes.
Hidden Comfort Insoles for Open Shoes—for women who need the extra cushioning of an insole that’s discreet and ultra-slim, we offer our Hidden Comfort Insoles for Open Shoes. These latex-free insoles will provide hidden comfort when wearing sandals, slides, sling backs or strapped shoes.
