Do You Suffer From Heel Pain?

Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Spurs)

What is it? How do I treat it?

  • Do you suffer from heel pain?

  • Does it feel like you have a nail in your heel?

  • After walking for a few minutes does the pain slowly disappear?

Millions of people each year are faced with this type of pain. While there may be other causes, the most common is Plantar Fasciitis.

Plantar Faciitis is an inflammation of the fibrous tissue, called the plantar fasciia,  that runs along the bottom of your foot that connects the heel (calcaneus) to the toes (metatarsals). Treatment for this condition can take many forms including: stretching exercises, drugs, orthotics, injections, and in rare cases surgical procedures.

How does the "Strassburg Sock" work?
This easy to use, inexpensive device is designed to keep tension on the tissue (plantar fascia) so it heals in a stretched position at night. In this way many users find a reduction of their morning pain, some have noticed a reduced recovery time and yet others have reduced the need for medications.

When worn as prescribed, it does not allow the plantar fascia to contract while in the prone or supine position. The device holds the ankle and forefoot joints in a position of slight dorsiflexion that prevents a position of plantarflexion, that is the plantar fascia is not allowed to contract.

In addition the involuntary stretching of the plantar fascia over a long period of time helps to strengthen the foot's arch.

What is the "Strassburg Sock"?
The device consists of a tubular knit material that fits "over the calf" with 2 attached adjustable straps to maintain the foot in a neutral to slightly stretched position. When worn at night the device will apply a force which results in the reduction and/or elimination of the pain felt during those first steps in the morning.

What are the advantages of the "Strassburg Sock"?
It is very easy to use.
It does not lock the ankle joint into any one position thus allowing some movement between the various joints preventing possible joint compression pain.
It can be safely worn for several hours without adverse effect when applied properly.
