Specifically used for treating patients with centrally located heel spurs.
A non-centrally located heel spur; shallow heel counter in shoe.
A heel spur pad should only be used for radiographically confirmed centrally located heel spurs. The heel spur pad should always be used bilaterally to avoid creating a limb length difference. The heel spur pad should not be used in conjuction with a full heel cushion.Back to Modifications & Additions
