      How Can Compression Socks Help My Heel Pain?

      You can click on these links to read more about Plantar Fasciitis & Heel Pain.

      If you are suffering pain from Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs or Heel Pain, the main culprit that must be brought under control  is Inflammation.

      The most important aspect of healing these conditions is to obtain a proper diagnosis and obtain a comprehensive treatment plan. Treatments may include things like purchasing proper shoes for your lifestyle activities, custom orthotics if needed, stretches and hands-on treatments.

      The most important natural ways to reduce inflammation include:

      • Proper Footwear
      • Icing
      • Stretching
      • Avoiding Going Barefoot on Hard Surfaces

      However, many people do not know that one the most effective ways to reduce swelling, pain and inflammation is by wearing medical-grade compression socks.

      Medical-Grade Compression Socks means that the amount of compression is 20-30 mmHg or higher.

      In particular, DS6, FS4 and FS4+ products are particularly helpful, since FS4 and FS4+  also come with padded heels. 

      DS6 are worn at night only and can offer a tremendous amount of relief from heel pain first thing in the morning.

      Insurance Coverage for Medical-Grade Compression Socks:

      For people who have Extended Health Insurance Coverage through their work places, many companies cover the cost of medical-grade compression socks when they have a prescription from their medical doctor.

      Medical professionals do not usually think of using these devices for these conditions, since they are the gold standard treatment for conditions related to venous insufficiency, lymphadenopathy or related to surgery.

      However, it is a good idea to speak with your medical doctor or to obtain a prescription from a walk-in clinic, which may help you to be reimbursed.

      You will be provided with a detailed insurance receipt when we ship your products.
