Helps relieve aches and pains that cause fatigue and stress*.
Scholl Orthaheel Workforce Orthotic
The tri-planar motion control system of Scholl Orthaheel has been designed in collaboration with leading podiatrist Phillip Vasyli to minimise the stresses in the foot region, and correct the posture and alignment, to provide relief from most of the painful conditions.
Did you know more than 70% of people in the world have got a tendency for their foot to roll-over inside, and gradually flatten As the foot flattens out on the ground, the supporting tissues that run along the bottom of the foot (the plantar fascia) are stretched. If these forces are excessive they can lead to stress and inflammation of the tissues, causing pain under the heel when weight is placed on the foot.
Pain in the back of the heel can be caused by inflammation of the tissue that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone (Achilles tendon). The pain can result from the position and movement of the foot causing the tendon to be stretched. It can also be caused by injury.
As the foot flattens out on the ground, the leg turns slightly to follow the movement of the foot. If the movement of the foot causes the leg to turn further than the knee can comfortably accommodate, the resulting forces on the knee may lead to stress and pain. Pain in the lower back can be common and can have many causes, including the way a person walks. As the foot flattens out on the ground the leg turns inwards and this can affect the alignment of the hips, pelvis and the lower back. This can lead to stresses in the tissues which may lead to lower back pain. Claim back your footprint
