It’s not just for decoration. If you experience foot and ankle pain when running, this simple trick can offer you better support and protect your ankles. See how in the video below.

A Tip from Illumiseen: How to Prevent Running Shoe Blisters With a “Heel Lock” or “Lace Lock”
Do you get blisters on your feet while running? Illumiseen provides a helpful tip for runners to prevent these blisters with a “heel lock” or “lace lock” that creates extra friction between the laces at your ankle.
Pretty neat, huh? This is a helpful and interesting way to get more support when running and help any foot and ankle pain you may be experiencing. However, if you constantly suffer from foot pain when walking and running, there may be a bigger issue at play: misaligned feet.
Nearly 45% of the population suffers from foot misalignment, but most just don’t know it. While tricks like the extra shoelace hole can help manage the pain, the only way to correct the misalignment is to realign the feet using a procedure called HyProCure®.
Misalignment occurs when the ankle bone slips off the heel bone, causing an excessive inward rotation, also known as over-pronation. HyProCure® places a small titanium stent into the naturally occurring space between the ankle bone and heel bone to correct the excessive inward rotation.
The minimally invasive outpatient procedure is fast, has a short recovery time, and a high success rate. It can help prevent future foot problems from occurring and have a positive impact on current problems – such as bunions – causing your foot and ankle pain.
Contact a New York podiatrist at Adler Footcare today to schedule a free HyProCure® assessment and find out if you’re a candidate. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment.
