Heel Fissures

"What is a Heel Fissure?

Heel Fissures, also known as "cracked heels", are just that... cracks in your heels. Minor cracks are not normally a problem, but the can get worse if not looked after. When the cracks get deeper, they can actually split open, bleed and become infected.

Reduce bacterial infections from Heel Cracks

Another great advantage of wearing Prolotex™ Socks is that they help to retard bacteria. Bacteria in soils, public parks and swimming pools can easily find their way into your cracked, split heels creating secondary infections. FIR has been shown to reduce bacterial infections.

Depending on the severity of the fissure, cracks, and possible infections, healing, mending tissue and smoothing heels may take longer for some. Prolotex™ Far Infrared Socks do help to speed up this healing process and get you back in action faster than not wearing them.
