Minimizing Heel Pain with QUICK TAPE®
Persistent heel pain can arise for many different reasons and afflicts people of all ages and activity levels. Often most painful when getting up after sitting or lying for long periods of time, symptoms include pain in the bottom of the heel or arch of the foot, which can increase over a period of months.
What Causes Heel Pain?
Most often attributed to plantar fasciitis, heel pain can also be caused by a stress fracture, a cyst, tendonitis, arthritis, heel spurs and/or injury to nerves. In many situations, the misalignment of the foot structure, such as high arches or flat feet, can cause injury and inflammation of the plantar fascia. This irritation can result in on-going pain on the bottom of the foot and in the heel arch.

How to Relieve Heel Pain
To relieve heel pain, doctors will often recommend stretches and walking to relax the plantar fascia tendon. Complex taping regimens with kinesthetic (also called therapeutic or medical tape) have also proven to be successful in relieving heel pain. QUICK TAPE® has developed an easy-to-use taping alternative that takes the annoyance out of this ritual, while providing long-lasting and cost-effective tape support.
