Heel pain, heel spur, and Plantar Fasciitis sufferers will find instant pain relief from our new product Heel That Pain Heel Seats shoe heel cups. The Heel Seats increase the density of the natural fat pad of your worn foot heels forming a new layer of support. Not to be confused with average shoe inserts, these Heel Seats are rigid and apply a clinically-proven acupressure on muscles and ligaments. The Seats are made to span the sole of your foot and realign back into a healthy position as your weight shifts.
The heel cups incorporate a 360° motion control to help relieve pain and improve posture while you’re active on your feet by standing, walking, or running. The Heel Seats are washable, durable for long-term use, and can be worn in any type of shoe that has a backing. The cups come in four sizes: Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large.

Until now, the best option for controlling GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) or acid reflux was a daily dose of acid neutralizers. Now, it’s as simple as an out-patient procedure at Lake Pointe Medical Center in Rowlett.

Alzheimer’s is a brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking, and reasoning. As we get older, everyone may experience one or more of these signs in different degrees.
The following list compares typical age-related memory loss and other changes to Alzheimer’s:
- Memory loss that disrupts daily life
- Common signs of Alzheimer’s is forgetting important dates or events, asking for the same information over and over, or relying on family members for things normally handled on their own
- A typical age-related change is sometimes forgetting names or appointments, but remembering them later
- Difficulty completing familiar tasks at home, work, or at leisure
- People with Alzheimer’s may have trouble driving to a familiar location, managing a budget, or remembering rules of a favorite game
- A typical age-related change is occasionally needing help to use the settings on a microwave or to record a television show
- Confusion with time or place
- People with Alzheimer’s can lose track of dates, seasons, and time. Sometimes they may forget where they are or how they got there
- A typical age-related change is getting confused about the day of the week, but figuring it out later
- Misplacing things and losing the ability to retrace steps
- A person with Alzheimer’s disease may put things in unusual places. They may accuse others of stealing. This may occur more frequently over time
- A typical age-related change is misplacing things from time-to-time, but retracing steps to find them
- Decreased or poor judgment
- People with Alzheimer’s may use poor judgement when dealing with money like giving large amounts to telemarketers. They may not care about keeping themselves clean
- A typical age-related change is making a bad decision once in awhile
If you notice any of these signs in yourself or someone you know, don’t ignore them. Schedule an appointment with your doctor. With early detection, you can explore options to help you maintain a level of independence longer. Care and support services are available by visiting the Alzheimer’s Association Website.
