How do we do it?
Instant relief with low dye taping -- patients with heel pain usually walk out feeling way better once we support their feet with tape.
Reduce the inflammation and pain-- we recommend icing, massage, and topical creams. Read more for information on self-care.
Correct funky foot mechanics --if you have heel pain, it's very likely that your feet need more support. Although some people can get away with minimal support by using a Powerstep insert, often people will require a more customized orthotic for long term pain relief.
