The Secret to Avoiding Back Pain in Summer Shoes

If you suffer from pain in your back, hips, knees or ankles, we know why warmer days make you cringe. It’s the season of summer shoes. Flip flops, sandals, strappy heels, or barefoot—what do they all have in common? A general lack of ankle support that can cause pain or aggravate existing conditions.

The team at Warwick Enterprises feels your pain. We have a solution to help you enjoy your summer shoes without the aches: the Adjustable Heel Lift Ankle Sock. The ankle sock allows wearers to enjoy the benefits of the Adjust-A-Lift® Heel Lift even in less supportive shoes.

Heel Lift, Explained

The Adjust-A-Lift® Heel Lift is a product used to even out the length inequality between legs which can help resolve related pain. The lift is inserted in the back of a shoe to lift the heel. It can also be useful in treating foot and ankle conditions like plantar fasciitis, heel spurs and Achilles’ tendonitis. The heel is made with three layers of extra firm, open cell foam rubber, each 1/8-inch-thick, held together with double-sided adhesive. Layers can be removed to accommodate the height the user requires.

It’s a cost-effective and simple way to treat low back pain, hip pain, and knee pain related to a leg length discrepancy.

Our Dynamic Duo

The heel lift is a great tool but it’s only intended to be used in shoes that are closed across the heel. This is where the Adjustable Heel Lift Ankle Sock comes into play. There is a therapy pocket concealed inside of the sock to hold the Adjust-A-Lift® Heel Lift securely in place. It comes in four sizes and two colors so you can find the option that’s right for you. The sock is machine washable and made of a polyester and spandex blend. No matter what type of shoe you choose to wear throughout the spring and summer, or even no shoes at all, the ankle sock provides a simple way to keep your heel lift in place and pain at bay. 

Beat the Heat and the Pain

Shoes with poor support are one of the most common causes of back pain, hip pain, knee pain, and ankle pain in the summer. Even people who don’t normally experience back or leg joint pain do so this time of year. The warmer weather calls for more breathable shoes, which often means less foot support. But not with the Adjustable Heel Lift Ankle Sock. Purchase yours today to enjoy summer styles without sacrificing quality foot and ankle support.
