The Strassburg Sock
The Strassburg Sock is the answer to the searing pain that you may experience in your heel. The most common of heel pain is Plantar Fasciitis, yet the treatment for this condition has not been standardized. The Strassburg Sock's claim to fame is being able to help people combat this condition. This easy to use, inexpensive devise is designed to keep the tension on the tissues (plantar fascia) so it heals in a stretched position at night. As the healing progresses, some have noticed by using the Strassburg Sock that there is a reduction in morning pain and have noticed a reduced recovery time. The Strassburg Sock itself is very easy to use. Can be worn for several hours without adverse effect when applied properly, can be worn to bed; providing no significant restrictions and will not interrupt normal sleep if worn as directed. This can reduce/eliminate the pain experienced with the first morning steps, and over a period of time strengthen the arch of foot. The Strassburg Sock is also engineered to supplement current treatment without interfering with various traditional doctor's treatment. Regular: Fits calf size up to 16 inches
Wearing Instructions: The Strassburg Sock is designed as a supplemental treatment for heel pain from Plantar Fasciitis. Its purpose is to provide an involuntary nightly assistance to your established daily treatment.*
Precautions: If you have a known circulatory problem, open sores, are a diabetic or are pregnant, if you have swelling or severe edema, if you have hammer toes, if you have an active rash or severe dermatitis, or any recent trauma to the foot or foot surgery, please consult your physician prior to using this product
Step One First disconnect all hooks and loop assemblies. While sitting in a chair, pull the sock on and stretch it up completely over the calf with the "D" ring facing the front. If the sock extends above the knee simply pull it up above the knee as far as it will go. Then pulling from the center of the sock, slide it down until the "D" ring is positioned just below the knee.
Step Two Secure the upper strap behind the calf by means of the attached Velcro. This strap should fit snug and secure but not so tight as to cause discomfort or cut off circulation. This strap provides the base for the support which will keep the sock properly positioned during sleep.
Step Three With your foot flat on the floor and your ankle at 90 degrees to the floor, take the strap attached to the toe of the sock and pass it thru the "D" ring' from the bottom to the top.
Step Four Pull the toes up approximately 1/2 to 1 inch off the floor. Now attach the Velcro pieces and the toes should remain in that position. Do not pull the toes upward too tightly as this over-extension will cause discomfort.
* While we anticipate no problems, if you should experience any discomfort while using the Strassburg Sock, please discontinue use immediately and contact your physician.
