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.

At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that patients suffering with a neuroma experience a lot of pain in the ball of their foot. This benign condition occurs when a nerve becomes enlarged on the underside of the foot, usually between two toes. A neuroma can be caused by anything that compresses the nerves in the forefoot. Oftentimes, pointy or narrow shoes and high heels are the culprit, putting excess pressure on the ball of the foot. An injury or biomechanical deformity can also be at the root of a neuroma. Whatever the cause, many patients say the end result is a feeling that you’ve got a rock in your shoe all the time. Podiatrists have several treatment options available for this condition. To relieving pain during the healing process we have many products that will help:
Ball of Foot Cushion – Ultra Thin—this incredibly comfortable wrap contains a soft gel cushion inside which provides superior padding. The sleeve slips over the entire forefoot and a satin strap holds it firmly in place. The Gel Ball of Foot Cushion can be worn on either foot. It is washable, allowing you to re-use it over and over.
Gel Dancer’s Pad—soft gel pads are self-sticking and can be positioned on the ball of the foot for maximum comfort. They are designed to shift weight bearing away from painful regions and reduce pressure on a neuroma (or other condition which affects the ball of the foot). Gel Dancer’s Pads are designed for use in all styles of footwear. They are available in two different thicknesses and can be washed and re-used multiple times.
Poron Metatarsal Pads—this product provides great cushioning and also biomechanical support if a physical defect is part of the cause of your neuroma. The Poron Metatarsal Pads have a fully adhesive back and will not flatten or bottom out. They are extremely durable and come in three sizes.

November is American Diabetes Month. This disease affects over 30 million Americans with another 1.5 million being diagnosed each year. At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that diabetic patients have special requirements for foot health. Poor circulation, often associated with diabetes, makes it difficult for oxygen-rich blood to get to wounds, particularly in your feet, which slows the healing process. Wounds that are difficult to heal are at risk for infection and, in the worst-case scenario, can lead to amputation. For this reason, it’s essential that patients with diabetes avoid sores and blisters. One way to do this is by reducing any possibilities of friction or pressure on the foot. If you have a bunion,hammertoe or other deformity, great care must be taken to ensure that corns are not rubbed raw or excessive pressure is not put on calluses.
Below are some products that can help protect your feet if you are a patient with diabetes:
Metatarsal and Bunion Protector Sleeve —offering two benefits in one pad, the Metatarsal and Bunion Protector Sleeve provides cushioned protection for bunions and also reduces pressure on the ball of the foot. The gel is contained within a soft elasticated forefoot sleeve which keeps the pad comfortably in place. It is available in sizes small and large and will fit either your left or right foot. Sleeves are washable and re-usable. Our Gel Bunion Sleeve also offers superior cushioning and relief from any footwear pressure and is available in two sizes: S/M and L/XL.
Metatarsal Pads—pure silicone gel provides an excellent cushion which increases comfort and protects skin from breaking down. Plantar fat pad atrophy is natural as you age but this can leave the ball of your foot vulnerable to friction and excessive pressure. Other conditions such as metatarsalgia can be relieved with our Gel Metatarsal Pads, our Gel Ball of Foot Cushions or our Metatarsal Pads which are offered in either felt or foam and 1/4 or 1/8 inch thickness.
Felt and Foam Corn Pads—corns form in response to footwear rubbing on the skin. Corns can become irritated and even turn into sores if not protected. Both our Felt Corn Pads and Foam Corn Pads cushion and protect corns. A center hole placed over the corn creates a barrier between foot gear pressure and the corn. An adhesive backing keeps the pad in place.

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.
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.
Do you suffer from heel pain or plantar fasciitis? After you’ve been walking or standing for a while, do your feet become tired, weak and achy? At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we have a solution your feet will love: Memory Foam Insoles.
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.

Do you find that by the end of the day the balls of your feet just ache? This is a common complaint and we at Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads have a way to alleviate that pain: Gel Ball of Foot Cushions. Pain in the ball of the foot can have several sources:
Fat pad atrophy—as you age the fat pad in this part of your foot begins to thin out
Whatever the cause of the pain in the ball of your foot, Gel Ball of Foot Cushions can help. These durable gel cushions provide substantial cushioning for the painful areas on the bottom of your foot and offload metatarsal heads. They can be used in any shoes and will greatly increase your comfort when walking or standing for long hours. The pads come in two thicknesses to ensure a comfortable fit and have a self-stick surface making them easy to apply. The pads can be placed directly on the ball of the foot or behind it for maximum pain relief. Your podiatrist can advise you on the ideal placement based on your podiatric condition.
Application and Care
To use the Gel Ball of Foot Cushions, follow these simple steps:
Wash your foot and dry completely. Do not apply any lotions, powders or ointments to the skin where the pad will be placed as this can dramatically decrease the effectiveness and life of the gel pad.
Position the cushion with the hole comfortably placed on or behind the painful area of the ball of your foot.
When ready to remove, simply gently peel the cushion away from the skin. (It is recommended that you remove the cushion for at least 3-4 hours each day to allow the skin to breathe.)
Gel Ball of Foot Pads are durable and reusable. Hand wash the gel pad with a mild soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry. The self-adhering surface will renew once the pad is completely dry and it can be re-used many times if properly cared for.
Be aware, gel pads should not be placed on an open wound. If you experience any irritation or discomfort from the pad, remove immediately and notify your podiatrist of the reaction.

If you have ever had an ingrown toenail, you know how painful it is. A toenail the grows downward and into the skin around the nail bed causes the area to become red, swollen and very tender to the touch. Sometimes you can work the nail out of the skin by soaking the toe in warm water several times a day and gently massaging the nail bed. Often, your podiatrist will have to remove the ingrown toenail. At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads we have ways to help reduce the pain as your ingrown toenail heals.
Padding Brings Pain Relief
We offer two products that you can use to protect a tender toe. Both are caps that go over the entire toe, cushioning it and preventing painful pressure. One cap is a combination of fabric and gel and the other is an all-gel cap—both are latex free. These caps will relieve pain and allow you to wear shoes and continue with your daily activities until the toe is fully healed. Like all our products, the toe caps were designed by a podiatrist who truly understands the needs of patients with foot pain. You can view the toe caps in our online catalog or contact us for more information.
Avoiding Ingrown Toenails
Some patients are particularly prone to ingrown toenails. The tendency for them can be inherited. They can also be caused by a trauma, repetitive banging of the toe (if you are a runner or soccer player, for example) or if there is another nail condition present, such as a fungal toenail. There are a few steps you can take to help prevent them from occurring:
Don’t wear shoes that have cramped toe boxes and squeeze toes together for long periods of time.
Keep nails trimmed straight across and not too short.
Never file toenails in a rounded shape or with curved edges.
You should also never attempt to cut out an ingrown nail or resort to “folk remedies,” like sticking a piece of cotton under the nail or cutting a notch in it. These just end up causing worse injuries and possibly a secondary infection as well.
You can order our toe caps and other foot pads online or by calling: (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723). You can also purchase them in our store located in Deerfield Beach, FL.
Foot pain is extremely debilitating. When even just standing and walking become excruciating tasks, relieving the pain becomes a top priority.
