Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads knows that many athletes can increase both their comfort and performance level with the proper use of arch supports. That’s why the company offers a complete line of products that provides excellent arch support and addresses a variety of other foot conditions.
“If you have a low arch or flat feet, increased pounding of the foot due to repetitive actions like running can cause heel pain,” Dr. Jill’s states on its blog. “This is because flattening of the arch puts increased pressure on the heel and also causes the inflammation of the plantar fascia.”
One consideration includes Dr. Jill’s Gel Arch Pads, which are designed to be used in all styles of footwear and are available in two thicknesses. These self-stick cushions of soft gel offer support for weak arches, high arches, and pronation-related foot problems. “Remove pad for at least three to four hours a day to allow feet to breathe,” states Dr. Jill’s on its blog. “Pads are washable and can be re-used multiple times.”
Arch Steppers are another innovation that offer flexible supports for long-lasting comfort. Made of flexible material with a ¾ length, these supports are lightweight and take up minimal space in the shoe. “Arch Steppers are scientifically contoured to keep your arch at its most efficient height, which helps eliminate pain,” according to Dr. Jill’s. “They are also anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. In addition to your fitness shoes, Arch Steppers can be used in most dress shoes as well.”
The Arch Binder has also become popular, as its elastic sleeve slips over the foot and provides gentle compression to the arch, which comfortably lifts and supports the plantar fascia. “The Arch Binder relieves pain in both the arch and the heel,” states Dr. Jill’s on its blog. “The sleeve fits either the left or right foot. It can be washed and re-used over and over again.”
