orthotic insoles heel cups


Heel Cups

  • The smallest and simplest type of orthotic for heel pain relief: can be easily inserted into just about any pair of shoes. Some have a sticky backing to keep them in place.

  • Made of gel, silicone, or plastic

  • Address foot pain in two ways:

    • 1) Lift up the heel slightly, which reduces tension on the Achilles tendon, and this in turn alleviates pressure on the plantar fascia.

    • 2) Provide shock absorption for the heel, which reduces stress on the plantar fascia even more.

  • Be sure to wear heel cups in both shoes, or other problems can develop.

Heel Spur Orthotic Insoles

  • Provide arch support and cushioning for some or all of the foot

  • Ideal for correcting foot shape issues like flat feet or high arches, which may be contributing to heel pain associated with spurs

  • Available in full length, 2/3 length, or 1/2 length sizes

  • Range from over-the-counter to semi-customizable and fully customizable

  • Tread Labs offers three types of semi-customizable orthotic insoles for heel pain:

  • The Stride, Stride Thin, and Stride Short are each designed to provide therapeutic support for every type of shoes. With several arch height options, this guarantees a perfect fit.

    Night Splints

    • Treat heel pain related to plantar fasciitis throughout the night.

    • Hold the foot and toes back so that the calf muscles, Achilles tendon, and plantar fascia are kept slightly stretched (since most people usually sleep with their feet pointing down).

    • Simple and effective way to alleviate heel pain that strikes in the morning with the first steps of the day.

    • Available in a boot style cast, sleep supports, and sock style supports
