Plantar Fasciitis Help - The Strassburg Sock
The Strassburg SockOur customers have given us very positive feedback about the Strassburg Sock.

Literature from Dave Strassburg says:

"The Strassburg Sock is designed primarily for night-time use for relief of Plantar Fasciitis, as well as Achilles tendonitis and tight calves. It is much more comfortable and effective than traditional boot-type night splint products. It can also be used during the day, if seated for an extended period of time, or as a short term hands-free calf, hamstring, and back stretching aid."

Compression - CEP and 2XU
CEP socks and tights support muscle groups with 18-30MMHG. They are graduated with a compressive action that speeds blood flow back to the heart, reduces muscle vibration and reduces swelling. These compression products are popular in our store for activity recovery, extended air and car travel, post surgical and for pregnant women.
 Ice-Up Pack

When you need to ice, the Ice Up pack provides treatment in 5-10 minutes vs. 20 minutes with a passive ice pack.

The Ice Up Pack:
• Provides effective therapy for ligament, tendon and muscular injuries.
• Offers immediate ice massage which increases treatment effectiveness and speeds recovery.
• Includes a portable Carry Cooler which keeps Ice-Up Stick frozen up to 10 hours.
• Can be taken anywhere for immediate post activity ice massage with a leak proof design to keeps their sports bag dry.

Achilles Tendon Support
The Achilles Tendon Support alleviates conditions of Achilles Tendonitis (inflammation or tenderness of the Achilles Tendon).

How It Works: The Achilles Tendon Support applies compression to the Achilles Tendon helping to reduce stress to the problem area. In addition, upward pressure is applied to the heel, causing the heel to lift slightly. The lift of the heel will also reduce stress to the Achilles Tendon.

IT Band Wrap

The IT Band wrap alleviates conditions of Iliotibial Band Syndrome.

How It Works: This IT Band Wrap provides targeted compression, stabilizing the Iliotibial tract. In addition, it absorbs stress to the area and reduces friction and rubbing of the femoral condyle. The wrap provides warmth and reduces stress to the Iliotibial Band and is designed to prevent slipping.

Short Sleeve Knee Support

Nike and Pro-Tec Athletics' Short Sleeve knee supports are worn to reduce symptoms of tendinitis, arthritis, chondromalacia (runner's knee), and other knee ailments.

How it Works: The Short Sleeve provides compression to the knee region surrounding the patella. The sleeve provides warmth and promotes circulation, enhancing the healing process. In addition, this brace has an infrapatellar buttress which helps support the patella and may improve patellar tracking.

Design Theory: The Short Sleeve is not as hot or cumbersome as most knee sleeves because it is modified below the knee to reduce sweat. The open patella keeps pressure off of the knee cap.

The Original Neoprene Knee Strap

The original knee strap alleviates patellar pain, including conditions of Tendinitis (jumper's knee), Chondromalacia (runner's knee), Patello-Femoral Pain, and Osgood-Schlatter's.

The knee strap provides moderate compression to the patellar tendon, reducing forces to the femoral groove while it helps to stabilize the patella. A unique attachment system allows the user to adjust the strap with one hand while the strap stays in place.

ProStretch provides relief for:
• Heel Spurs •Plantar Faciitis •Shin Splints •Achilles Tendonitis •Strained Calves •Knee Pain • Back Pain

Foot Rubz

"Your Foot Rubz ball is a great aid in the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis. I have developed a set of exercises that patients can complete quickly and painlessly with the use of your product. The product is simple, safe and inexpensive. Its use should be considered by all specialists treating heel pain." -Dr. Ronald W. Ferguson, Jr., DPM

Brooks Mismatch Shoe Program
For a $30 fee, Brooks will let us order mismatched shoes for people with different sized feet in length or width.
Doctor Specified socks for people with diabetes

Doctor Specified diabetic socks are designed to reduce the chance of injury to the foot because diabetic neuropathy can cause people with diabetes to be unable to feel festering foot injuries which can result in serious infection. Doctor Specified sock features include:

• Hand-linked seamless toe ensures no abrasion across the top of the foot.
• Extra-deep heel well provides optimum fit.
• Med Dry fabric and mesh ventilation. Wicks away moisture and allows air to circulate, keeping the foot cool and dry.
• 160 needle half cushion construction provides impact protection without excess bulk.
• Comfort top ensures the sock stays in place without binding.
