Compressana Tape Sox Type Pes Valgus (Pronation Control)

Walking without pain!

COMPRESSANA Tape Correction Sox combine the benefits of conservative therapy options such as physiotherapy with kinesio taping to counteract misalignment of the foot – all without side-effects.


Pes valgus is certainly one of the most common malpositions of the foot. This is characterised by an inward-turned heel and a flattening of the medial longitudinal arch. This causes the front of the foot to turn outwards, meaning that it no longer faces in the direction of travel when walking. Combined with a weakness of the lateral pelvic floor muscles, pes valgus leads to a loss of support from the inside of the foot, causing the arch to “collapse”. In the final stage, severe cases of pes valgus are described as flat feet. 

Causes & effects

This malposition is often due to a combination of different factors. A lack of mobility, weak muscles, overstretched ligaments and a lack of muscular control all lead to loss of three-dimensional foot stability. Limited ankle mobility, reduced stability of the leg axes, etc. increases or causes the above-named problems. Great strain (standing, walking or running for long periods) and/or obesity have a negative effect on the malposition, especially in unsuitable shoes.

Compressana TAPE SOX Pes Valgus/Pronation Control raise the heel and position the ball of the foot. The special alignment of the tape ribbons stimulates the musculature and three-dimensionally stabilises the foot’s longitudinal and latitudinal arches, so that the foot can better absorb impact forces and conduct these into the ground in a targeted manner. The socks help to stop the malposition from getting worse and to reduce pain in the foot due to strain. The Pes Valgus/Pronation Control sock helps to support and control the foot, gently pulling it back into its naturally arched position.

Period of wear = therapy period

With the COMPRESSANA TAPE SOX, wearing socks becomes a form of therapy that neither limits feet in their functionality nor is noticeable in everyday life. The corrective socks are made of skin-friendly cotton, take up little space and can therefore be worn with any shoe. It is entirely up to you for how long you treat your foot, and without suffering any skin irritations or having to replace the tape each day, as is the case with direct taping. The tape socks are latex-free.

The tape socks can be worn permanently and over a long period in slippers, street shoes, work shoes, casual shoes and sports shoes. As tabi socks, they can even be worn with sandals, and can be used without shoes when at home. They can even be combined with insoles. Tape socks can be worn as night socks for gentle, passive correction.

Available in three correction strengths - light (slight), medium (moderate) and strong (severe) as advised by your clinician. 

Application

Preventative: The COMPRESSANA TAPE SOX can be worn as a precautionary measure if you have an existing or developing misalignment. It is possible and generally unproblematic to combine them with inserts.
Post­operatively: After an operation for bunions or hammer toes, taping socks can help maintain a successful operation result by countering local misalignment.

COMPRESSANA TAPE SOX achieve the best results if worn in shoes that are not too tight, with enough room for the toes and with flat heels (< 4 cm). The shoes should also not be too small/short, as this also pushes the toes out of their natural position, which can cause hallux valgus as well as hammer/claw toes.

It is important that you slowly increase the length of time that you wear the tape socks, or wear them only overnight at first, so that the joints of the big toes can gradually get used to their new mobility. In the course of a week, you can increase the length of time you wear COMPRESSANA TAPE SOX until you are wearing them all day long.
