Heel lifts are placed inside the patient's shoes for the purpose of treating knee, hip, back, and foot pain associated with:
- a limb-length discrepancy (one leg is longer than the other)
- an achilles tendon injury
Heel lifts do not provide shock absorption, but rather they create a shift in balance and gait (gait is a person's way of walking).
Here is a Spenco sample of what heel lifts look like.
If you believe you are a candidate for heel lifts, call Dr. Will Rosena today to schedule an appointment for an assessment.
