The Kinetic Comfort Heel Pad is an effective appliance used to relieve symptoms brought on by the cumulative, repetitive microtrauma of day-to-day standing and walking. It is made from an open cell, extra firm density foam rubber, which means that the constant microtrauma of standing and walking is dissipated both vertically and horizontally.
As a health care provider who sees patients with biomechanical issues, you have patients coming into your office on a daily basis with symptoms directly related to the constant accumulation of micro-trauma from standing and walking. This happens to all people and especially those people who stand and walk on hard surfaces such as concrete.
The skeletal structure of the body is a closed kinetic chain beginning at heel strike and continuing up and down the skeleton. If the shock to the skeleton of standing and walking can be reduced before entering the kinetic chain, symptoms will be relieved. It is that simple.
Some of the common symptoms resulting from the cumulative repetitive microtrauma of day- to- day life that potentially can be helped by use of the Kinetic Comfort Heel Pad include:
- Low Back Pain
- Heel Pain
- Knee Pain
- Hip Pain
- Pain between the shoulders
- Remember, trauma at the point of impact can result in dysfunctional pain at multiple sites.
