If you’ve ever had to deal with heel pain, you know this can be one of the most excruciating forms of foot pain. Conditions like plantar fasciitis can make it feel like a knife is stabbing through your heel with every step. While heel pain often improves on its own with the help of basic treatments like rest, ice, compression and elevation, you should consult with a doctor or qualified medical professional if heel pain persists and/or becomes seriously debilitating.
One common recommendation for heel pain is orthotic heel supports. While heel cups can be used on their own, it is also very common for orthotic insoles to offer additional heel support, particularly custom insoles.
How do orthotics heel supports offer relief?
While heel supports cannot cure heel pain or the underlying condition, they can relieve pressure on the heel and provide cushioning that offers significant relief. While stand-alone orthotic heel supports can be a good place to start, what they can’t do is address misalignments of the foot and mechanical issues that are so often the cause of conditions like plantar fasciitis.
This is where an orthotic insole that is designed to promote natural biomechanics can help. The foot is designed to function in a certain way in order to facilitate basic movements like walking, running and jumping. If something is off with the structure or mechanics of the foot, it can place added stress on other areas, such as the heel. By addressing these issues in addition to providing cushioning for the heel, wearers can have a better chance of finding relief for long periods of time.

Here is what one of our satisfied customers who was previously dealing with heel pain had to say:
“I went to Biocorrect in 2015 after experiencing heel pain for months during running. I tried several 'at-home' remedies and over-the-counter orthotics with no success. After receiving my first pair of Biocorrect orthotics, I was amazed at how quickly the pain was not present. I was able to go back to my regular routine and run a half marathon six weeks later. I have since run several 5Ks and half marathons while continuing to live a very active life, pain-free."
