Heel Pain

Finding Relief from Heel Pain

Heel pain can be caused by various conditions, with the most common being plantar fasciitis, which involves inflammation of the tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes. Achilles tendinitis is another source of heel pain, resulting from irritation and inflammation of the Achilles tendon at the back of the heel.

Alegria shoes are designed to provide comfort and support, making them potentially helpful for individuals experiencing heel pain. They feature a combination of features that can alleviate discomfort, such as contoured footbeds, arch support, and cushioning. Alegria's patented footbeds incorporate shock-absorbing materials to reduce impact on the heels, while their roomy toe boxes allow for natural foot movement. Alegria shoes also offer adjustable straps or laces on select styles to ensure a secure fit and personalized support, which can be beneficial for individuals with specific foot conditions contributing to heel pain.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ALEGRIA ADDICT "Until I discovered Alegria I had issues with heel pain, but that has gone away!" - Bobbie F.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ FABULOUS "I have been an RN for 16 years working 12 hour shifts, and my days are extremely busy. I've been having foot and heel pain. I've tried six different types of shoes, none of which helped. I finally decided to to purchase some Alegria shoes (a coworker raved about them). They arrived very quickly and I liked them immediately. My podiatrist asked me to bring in the shoes. He picked up the Alegria, kind of examined them, and said 'Oh! I like these. Do you? You should keep wearing these.' So, there you have it, podiatrist approved. They are so comfortable, and I get tons of compliments. Love my Alegria shoes." - Marilyn M.

Plantar Fasciitis Exercises

Exercises for plantar fasciitis provide several benefits in managing and alleviating the condition. These exercises typically target the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the foot and calf. They can help stretch and strengthen the plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and surrounding muscles, reducing tension and promoting flexibility. By doing so, they can improve foot and ankle stability, enhance shock absorption, and correct imbalances in the lower extremities.
