Strassburg Sock - The Start
People who suffer with heel pain don’t want to get out of bed in the morning.
Well, I found out that I wasn’t alone, studies show that one in every eight people with more than 3 million new people each year suffer with this problem. Although not always disabling, it does cause severe discomfort, which can effect your daily activities. After receiving treatment from two doctors and a couple of steroid shots in my heel, I decided I needed a way to eliminate those first painful morning steps and get on with my life. And as many others have found, I just couldn’t stand to wear that uncomfortable night splint boot my doctor had prescribed. I thought if I could just find a more comfortable way to hold my foot in a certain position maybe it wouldn’t hurt so bad when I got out of bed in the morning.
Using a tube sock, a piece of material, and my wife’s sewing machine, late one night I devised a crude device to hold my foot in position while sleeping. The next morning I felt a significant reduction of pain as I took those first steps out of bed. After a couple more nights wearing my “brainstorm”, the pain had almost disappeared. Not knowing how it worked just that it did, I contacted a friend who was a physical therapist and together we worked out the details and applied for a patent. Two years later we received a US patent and FDA approval for the sale of the Strassburg SockTM.
