Our heel lifts help people with ailments and conditions, for example those with Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendonitis and leg discrepancies (one leg longer or shorter than the other). Our heel lifts can be prescribed by professionals who have measured leg differences in millimetres, and then the correct size chosen to be added to a person’s footwear to assist them.
OrthoSole heel lifts can help people with Plantar Fasciitis. An 8mm heel (6mm if the footwear isn’t very deep) under both heels works great to help relieve the stress from plantar fascia (the thin ligament that connects your heel to the front of your foot) to assist with the healing process).
Achilles Tendonitis can also be helped with our 8mm heel lifts (6mm if the footwear isn’t deep) to help take the stress away from the tendon.
The heel lifts will stay fixed in place with the 3M sticky tape, and they work especially well underneath an OrthoSole insole. We recommend wearing the heel lifts under both feet so not to put your body out of line by causing an imbalance.
