This article will provide 3 options of Heel Lifts for Achilles Tendonitis that we have found are most effective with our patients.
We recommend the Skyfoot Orthopedic Heel Lifts for Achilles Tendonitis due to their gel cushioning, self-adhesive and optional heights.
The gel cushioning is beneficial for Insertional Achilles Tendonitis as it is soft and absorbs impact.
The self-adhesive stops it from moving in your shoe and the two size options allow you to purchase a high heel lift for more severe symptoms of Achilles Tendonitis.Buy Now
We recommended the Skyfoot Orthopedic Heel Lifts for Achilles Tendonitis due to its PU material and half-open adhesive.
The PU material is durable and firm to prevent the heel lift from breaking down or your foot from sinking into it too much.
The half-open adhesive allows you to alter the heel height as you should reduce the heel lift gradually as your symptoms improve.Buy Now
