Strutz Pro is an unobtrusive and effective pad that helps treat and prevent ball of foot pain and improves foot structure and function. Strutz Pro’s built-in pad is intended to be positioned in the area, or pocket, just behind the ball of your foot, not under the ball of your foot. With fabric side facing the sole of your foot and the pointed part facing your heel, slide your Strutz Pro into position. Then, take a few steps to see how the pad feels. To adjust the pad, simply slide it to the position that feels most comfortable. Again, the pad should be pushing into your sole just behind the ball of your foot. This is the location in which Strutz Pro will provide maximum foot health benefits. Positioning the pad directly under the ball of your foot may cause foot discomfort and may be counterproductive for achieving optimal foot health.
Strutz Pro Transition Period
There may be a brief “break in” period until you feel comfortable wearing your Strutz Pro mobile metatarsal pads for extended periods. It can take up to several days for your feet and body to adjust to your Strutz Pro foot pads. We recommend that you wear your Strutz Pro foot pads for 30 minutes to 1 hour the first day, and then increase wear time by 1 hour per day, to tolerance. Strutz Pro should not cause any foot pain or discomfort. If you feel foot pain after using Strutz Pro, remove the pad from your feet and begin wearing them the next day without increasing your wear time. You can then gradually increase your usage if your foot discomfort does not reappear. If you still feel pain or discomfort when wearing your Strutz Pro foot pads, please discontinue use and consult a natural foot health practitioner.
How to Use Strutz Pro Foot Pads
You can wear your Strutz Pro foot pads over a pair of toe socks, on your bare feet, or within a pair of men's or women's shoes that support natural foot health. For best results, please consider using your Strutz Pro foot pads in combination with Correct Toes and footwear that is completely flat from heel to toe, widest at the ends of the toes (not the ball of the foot), and flexible in the sole. Please avoid using Strutz Pro in tight-fitting and rigid-soled footwear.
Note: If you have diabetes, suffer from persistent chronic joint problems and foot pain, experience numbness in your feet, or have circulation problems, please consult a natural foot health practitioner before using Strutz Pro. Approval from your health care provider is very important.
