Effective heel spur treatment for total heel pain relief

Updated on September 30, 2012

For sufferers of common foot ailments such as heel spurs and plantar fasciitis, taking exercise and even getting about from day to can be difficult and sometimes impossible.

The pain experienced can range from mild to intense, however no matter how bad the condition it is always frustrating.

Constant low level pain can wear people down, and whilst often not serious enough to warrant a visit to the doctor, the constant pain when walking can be a major cause of depression and can prevent people from enjoying a normal happy life.

Heel pain causes

There are many heel pain causes is caused by a number of different factors, and it is always wise to check with a podiatrist or doctor to help determine the exact nature of the problem before attempting to treat it at home. However in the majority of cases heel pain is caused by a stress fracture, bone or heel spurs or plantar fasciitis.

In the case of stress fractures, there is not a great deal which and be done apart from staying off the feet. Plantar fasciitis symptoms often involve heel pain even though the plantar fascia runs the length of the foot. People with heel spurs are often faced with costly surgery to remove the problem.

Plantar fasciitis treatment exercises are highly beneficial, one of which is walking barefoot in soft sand. Many toning shoes recreate this walking gait to offer pain relief, however with most toning shoes and sandals costing upwards of $80 a pair it is often not an option for many people, especially when there is a risk that the shoes may not work!

When walking heel pain can become severe and many pain sufferers are discouraged from taking exercise and maintaining an active healthy lifestyle for fear of making the problem worse, if exercise is bearable at all. However help is at hand.

Heel pain treatment options

The most cost effective treatment options are shoe inserts which can take the pain out of walking. Whilst many sufferers will have tried standard or even custom made orthotic inserts, these are often not particularly effective at eliminating pain completely. There are notable companies which offer such pain relieving inserts such as Scholl whose products are well priced. However there is one product which is proving to be a revelation for heel pain sufferers for the total pain relief it offers, and it comes from the appropriately named company, Heel That Pain.

Whether its bone spur heel pain, plantar fasciitis, or a number of other painful foot conditions, the shoe inserts sold by Heel That Pain have proven to be the most effective at totally eliminating pain.

The company produces two excellent products which have been so successful that they are now available with a 120 day pain free money back guarantee.

Now that’s confidence in their product!

HTP Heel Seats and Gel Seats

The heel seat and gel seats are remarkably effective shoe inserts which offer instant pain relief to heel pain sufferers no matter how far the problem has progressed.

They work by applying acupressure to pain hot spots for instant relief. They are the result of 30 years of development and have been designed and perfected to provide the maximum possible relief from pain without the need for pain medication. They are constructed from KRATON™ which has been developed to allow the inserts to flex when walking and running, and still offer excellent cushioning. They can even slow down or reverse the effects of ageing on the heels.

Both models of inserts feature the patented Fascia-Bar technology which works by targeting heel pain causes rather than the pain itself. The Heel Seat is the original treatment option, however further development has led to the production of the gel seat, which offers even greater cushioning and is even softer and more flexible.

The inserts can be easily slipped into any shoe, are constructed for long life. They are also washable to keep them odour free and hygienic.

Do the treatments really work?

Both of these products are medically proven to relieve pain, provide deep tissue healing, and prevent the return of heel pain from plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. The products are highly recommended and universally acclaimed to offer the best pain relief on the market for plantar fasciitis of the heel and heel spurs.

They have been endorsed by top athletes such as NBA star John Starks, and retailers love them. They have received praise from, Target, FootSmart and the Running Network in addition to a growing number of podiatrists and doctors who back up the claims of pain relief and recommend the products to their patients.

However the most valuable endorsements come from heel pain sufferers themselves, who have been helped in their tens of thousands by these revolutionary new heel pain relief shoe inserts.

Making sure pain doesn’t come back

      I can vouch for these. 4 Stars. I was very skeptical at first because I had tried many other heel pads here in Canada.

      I decided to try them out so I put in an order at

      "Heel that Pain", received them last week and immediately felt relief as I had never felt before.
