Study Shows Plantar Fasciitis Relief with Heel Cups and Stretching Combined

88% of participants found relief with a combination of both the support of Tuli’s Heel Cups and the deep calf stretching provided by ProStretch Plus.

A two-year study done by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) found that the combination of off-the-shelf shoe inserts and targeted stretching exercises provides the most significant relief from heel pain.

During the two-year study which involved 15 orthopaedic foot and ankle centers across the United States, researchers looked at the effectiveness of stretching exercises and orthotic devices such as Tuli’s® Heel Cups in the treatment of heel pain to determine the level of effectiveness.

The study showed that the combination of heel Cups and deep calf stretching provided the most effective heel pain and plantar fasciitis relief.
