If chronic heel and ankle pain goes untreated, the pain can spread to the knee, hip and spine, causing serious disruption to your daily activities. The Bauerfeind ViscoSpot Heel Support is designed to act as a shock absorber, protecting the joints with every step. These anatomically-contoured heel cushions relieve stress with the aid of three zones made of material with different levels of firmness.
If you have calcaneal spurs or osteoarthritis, overloading your heel when walking or standing can cause serious pain. ViscoSpot heel orthoses are designed to cushion the shock load of every step. Their soft blue core relieves pressure on the sensitive and painful pressure point on the sole of the heel, while their viscoelastic shape adapts itself perfectly to both the shoe and the foot.
