Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads was founded by a professional Podiatrist, Dr. Jill Scheur. As a foot doctor, Dr. Scheur knows that each season brings its own unique issues when it comes to podiatric care and disorders. Summertime means changes in footwear and activities that can lead to some annoying foot problems if patients fail to take the proper precautions.
Hurting Heels—it’s only natural, summer seems to invite people to walk barefoot or to wear the ever-popular, easy to slip on flip flops. Both of these choices, however, can result in flattening arches which in turn leads to heel pain due to the stress imposed on the plantar fascia (a long band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot). If flip flops are your summer shoe of choice, invest in a pair that has built in arch support. For other styles of summer shoes, consider adding one of our arch pads: Gel Arch Pads, Skived Felt or Poron Blue. Our Gel Heel Cup can provide soothing relief and additional protection for sore heels.
Corns, Calluses and Blisters—Oh My! Strappy sandals that rub in new places, thong styles with a piece between your toes and other summer shoe styles plus increased friction from perspiration equals irritation to the skin on your toes and feet. Bunions and hammertoes may be subject to new sources of pressure as well, leading to secondary issues with corns and calluses. Look to protect the skin on your feet with some of the many products we offer for this purpose, including: Foam Callus Pads, Gel U-Shaped Pads and Gel Callus Cushions. Corns can be relieved with pads made of Gel, Foam or Felt. Stop blisters from forming with our Moleskin Sheets, which can be cut to fit any sore spot where shoes rub on skin.
Whatever summer brings for your feet, we can help keep you comfortable and enjoying all the best the season has to offer. To view all our products, see our online catalog. All our items can be easily ordered online or contact us by calling (866) FOOT-PAD (366-8723) if you need assistance.
