Metatarsalgia—characteristic of this foot problem is severe pain in the ball of the foot and stems from the nerves between the metatarsal bones that go from your toes down the middle of your foot. Nerve inflammation is the source of the pain. While your Podiatrist treats this disorder, you may find relief by using our Gel Dancer’s Pad. These self-stick, soft gel pads are designed to protect the sore area and shift weight away from the affected metatarsal.
Achilles Tendonitis—although this may sound like a podiatric problem that a Greek god might experience, it’s actually a common injury that afflicts both professional athletes and weekend warriors. When the long tendon that runs down the back of your leg connecting the calf to the heel is inflamed or overused it can cause extreme pain anywhere along the tendon. Increasing activity level, intensity and duration of workout too quickly can all cause Achilles tendonitis. Our Achilles Heel Sleeve contains a soft gel pad inside soft fabric that protects the tendon area and the back of the heel while gently compressing and reducing pressure around sore areas. The sleeve is designed for use in all styles of footwear and the pads can be washed and re-used many times.
Black Toenails—runners will often have one or more black toenails. The ghastly appearance is actually blood that has pooled under the nail as a result of the constant hitting of the toes up against the front of the shoe when running. This condition can also be painful. Our All Gel Toe Cap slips over the entire hurting toe to relieve pain and provide cushioning. This latex-free product comes in four sizes for maximum comfort.
