Padding Clinically Shown to Reduce Foot Pain for People with Arthritis
Thorlos Health Padds uniquely constructed padding has been clinically shown to provide pain relief and reduce pressures that plague feet affected by rheumatoid arthritis. If you are among the 50 million Americans with rheumatoid arthritis, you will appreciate the guaranteed benefits of clinically-tested Thorlos padded socks, with padding clinically shown to reduce blisters, pain, pressures and moisture. According to the Arthritis Foundation, arthritis—in all its forms—is a more frequent cause of activity limitation than heart disease, cancer or diabetes, and one in three people with arthritis experiences work limitations. Countless more are in constant pain.
The structural changes to the foot that accompany the progression of arthritis — e.g., joint damage, foot deformity, hammer toes, bunions — make feet vulnerable to pain and further damage even with mild impact. Health Padds unique padding acts as a protective shield against jarring impacts, which can be painful, from walking on hard surfaces as well as up and down stairs. While the pain-reduction research results were based on rheumatoid arthritis sufferers, we have a large amount of anecdotal evidence that the padding reduces foot aches and pain generally.
Health Padds Will Help You Stay Active
Arthritis often causes foot pain and other problems that severely restrict mobility. Thorlos clinically-tested padded socks (CTPS) help you stay active and function to the best of your ability. With Thorlos, your walking/mobility program—a key to maintaining function and reducing arthritis foot pain and other symptoms—will be easier on your joints, and potentially more enjoyable.

Reviews for Thorlos ARTHRITIS

My husband has experienced real relief from the foot pain he always has when standing or walking for long periods. The "Heath Padd" sox has gone a long way to making him more comfortable so he can enjoy daily activities.

Have purchased Thorlos for years and love them; wouldn't wear anything else. The HPXW's are very comfortable. The only reason I didn't rate them a five is because they do not have top-of-the-foot padding found in the running socks.

I have very sensitive feet and these socks wrap my feet in comfort. They are fantastic.

I order several varieties of Thorlo socks for the men in our family. This year I was thinking about skipping the order because I thought to switch gifts up a bit. I was then told - no by a few of the men. They needed socks again and loved what I've ordered in past years. Thank-you Thorlo for becoming a Christmas tradition!

Very comfortable. Not terribly warm but that's not the point. Took close to a month for Thorlo to acknowledge that I'd ordered them though. Don't order from the mfr. if you're in a hurry.

Less pain I would buy more if they came in another color.

I have only worn these socks once since they arrived. Being diabetic I was looking forward to extra padding. Instead what I got was a blister on my big toe! I will go back to my other socks. I am not a fan of blisters.

They changed the way they make the sock. The old ones had more padding. The new ones that, I just ordered, seem cheap and they shrank as soon as I washed them. I have always bought Thorlo socks but now I am going to change brands. I need the extra padding to help absorb the shock from playing on hard court.

My foot pain has gone down considerably. My feet are tender and need some cushion to help relieve pain. These socks have been amazing and wonderful and I will order more.

I bought Thorlo walking socks before and loved them. I have heel pain so I wanted padding in my sock. According to write ups the diabetic socks would have the best padding and be the best for foot pain. They were less padded than the walking socks I bought many years ago and they just don't lol like the will hold up as long. Not worth the high price.
