is a common description by sufferers. Heel pain
is usually caused by rolling over of the foot
(Excess Pronation). As the foot pronates, the
arch collapses and the muscles (plantar fascia)
and supporting structure are forced to stretch
and elongate. This puts traction and strain on

In turn, the heel bone 'responds' by developing
a bony growth right in the centre of the heel -
the 'heel spur'.
is an orthotic shoe insert designed to align the
foot and control body posture. By supporting the
arches and re-aligning the lower limb to its
natural angle, ORTHAHEEL reduces the traction
and strain on the plantar fascia, taking away

the center of the heel part of the product helps
disperse shock, thereby providing extra relief.
