Heel track

A heel track can be very bad. If you have painful heels, heel pain or radiation from your heel, you may suffer from heel spurs or Fasciitis Plantaris. Characteristic of this are the classic 'start pains'. This is what you experience particularly in the morning when you get out of bed or when you have been sitting on a chair for a long time. The first steps are particularly painful, but over time these pains usually weaken.

What is a heel track?

A tendon runs underneath. The tendon runs from the heel bone to the forefoot. Heel spurs is caused by this broad tendon. If the tendon plate is overloaded, a lot of tension will occur on the attachment of the bead bone. When the foot is loaded the pain will be under the heel.

In the night the tendon plate relaxes and will shorten, in addition, the body recovers in the night and can repair any damage or hair cracks on the tendon plate. Re-stretching this tendon plate in the morning due to the load causes the 'start pains'. In addition, there is a risk that due to the load in the morning, new hair cracks develop in this tendon plate (Fasciitis Plantaris). The injury can become chronic if this vicious circle is not broken.

Causes heel spur

There are many different causes that can cause a heel spur. The most common cause is due to overloading of the foot and tendon plate. Many are at work? Just started running? Exercising a lot? Do you wear high heels? Collapsed feet? Or bad shoes? These are all kinds of ways that can cause heel spurs.

Symptoms heel trace

  • Pain under the heel / heel
  • In the morning trouble with walking, during the day it goes.
  • Foot feels painful
  • Walking and walking do very well
  • Hold moisture under the heel

Treatment of heel spurs

The goal of a heel spur brace is to "hold" the foot at an angle of about 90 degrees to the lower leg. It is not the intention to put a lot of pressure on the heel spur brace. The goal is only to prevent the foot from relaxing. Because the heel track brace prevents the foot from relaxing during the night, a constant low tension is created on the tendon plate of the foot. This means that this tendon plate can not relax and shorten during the night. In the morning you will notice that the start pains become less severe because the tendon does not have to be stretched again. This is because the tendon plate is already lengthy thanks to the heel spurs.

ProBrace selects only the best products, we do this on the basis of our experience in practice and our consulting hours. ProBrace has made a selection of three kinds of night splints from all different products and suppliers. Every kind of heel spur night splint again has specific characteristics. Below you can see which heelspoor night splint fits best with your situation:

  • The Strassbourger sock : This sock is particularly suitable for people who are very agile in their sleep. The disadvantage of this sock is that it 'pulls' properly at the toes, causing cramps in the calf. The big advantage of the Strassbourger sock is that it is made entirely of textile and therefore breathable.
  • Nox Night Splint: This night splint is also suitable for belly sleepers. The big advantage of this splint is the compactness in combination with the rigidity whereby the pressure can be distributed evenly under the ball of the foot. It is actually the ideal combination between the Strassbourger sock and the UFO night splint.
  • Thuasne night splint is the biggest night splint that ProBrace sells. This brace is actually only suitable for people who sleep on their back or they. The big advantage of this model is the size. The pressure is distributed evenly over the entire calf and foot plate. This splint is particularly suitable for fast pressure-sensitive and / or rapid cramps in the muscles.

Remedy the complaints during the day?

During the day also a lot of problems with a heel spur? A support sole or a gel heel can help you reduce the symptoms during the day. They do not solve the problem for you, but they do alleviate the pain. The body will have to resolve the heel spur complaint itself. This does the body at rest, in the night. That is why the night splints can solve the problem in the long term:

  • Heel spurs
  • Gelhakjes
  • Viscospot
