At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we know that many patients can increase both their comfort and performance level in sports and fitness activities with the proper use of arch supports. If you have a low arch or flat feet, increased pounding of the foot due to repetitive actions like running can cause heel pain. This is because flattening of the arch puts increased pressure on the heel and also causes the inflammation of the plantar fascia—the long ligament that runs along the bottom of your foot.
We offer a number of products that can provide excellent arch support. A few to consider include:
Gel Arch Pads—self-stick cushions of soft gel offer support for weak arches, high arches and pronation related foot problems. Designed to be used in all styles of footwear, the Gel Arch Pads are available in two thicknesses. Remove pad for at least three to four hours a day to allow feet to breathe. Pads are washable and can be re-used multiple times.
Arch Steppers—these flexible supports offer long-lasting comfort. Arch Steppers are scientifically contoured to keep your arch at its most efficient height, which helps eliminate pain. Made of flexible material with a ¾ length, these supports are lightweight and take up only minimal space in your shoes. They are also anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. In addition to your fitness shoes, arch steppers can be used in most dress shoes as well.
Arch Binder—an elastic sleeve slips over the foot and provides gentle compression to the arch, comfortably lifting and supporting the plantar fascia. The Arch Binder relieves pain in both the arch and the heel. The sleeve fits either the left or right foot. It can be washed and re-used over and over again.
