Achilles Fix Kit
This complete rehabilitation kit, conceived by our in-house podiatrists, is designed to allow you to treat your Achilles tendon pain yourself and make dramatic improvements in returning to activity.
By combining insoles, taping and stretching, and strengthening the foot and calf, the AchillesFixKit incorporates a treatment programme designed to treat Achilles tendinopathy pain holistically. The treatment regime not only helps settle the pain but also aims to strengthen your structures to increase the capacity of your Achilles Tendon to try to prevent reoccurrence of pain. What’s best? It’s all achieved in the comfort of your own home.
We offer you full support on your road to recovery with our AchillesFixKit support hub
The AchillesFixKit contains:
- The X-Line AT insole, designed to alleviate pain and treat painful Achilles Tendons
- Calf length Foot Pump compression socks which encourage healthy blood flow to the injury to aid healing
- A supply of strapping tape, for instant pain relief by limiting the use of the tendon
- A stretchy therapy band
- A foot therapy ball
- An instructional booklet on foot and leg exercises to restore normality
The kit is supplied with an insole that can be trimmed to fit a range of sizes and therefore you will need to trim the insole to fit inside your footwear. For further information about this read click here. Additionally, we are often asked about how long insoles last for, and this can vary, but you may be interested to read this which might help you as you wear your insoles.

Here at Healthy Strep, we have been working with both NHS and private podiatrists and physiotherapists for over 20 years developing innovative solutions to help speed recovery from a range of foot and lower limb problems.
The XLine AT insole is widely used in biomechanics clinics throughout the UK and has proved a very effective early intervention device which incorporated features specifically aimed at relieving Achilles Tendinopathy.
When developing our Foot Pump socks we focused on making them comfortable to wear and worked with the foot’s natural ability to act as a pump to help return blood up into the calf and help it on its journey back to the heart. The innovative big toe pocket is an integral part of this system.
Resolving Achilles pain can be a real challenge, however Healthy Step is committed to helping you. Addressing the condition with the right shoes, insoles, tape and exercises seems to be the best way to resolve the pain naturally whilst keeping you on your feet too.
Rehabilitating your condition can take time, however, you can help to improve things by using the foot therapy ball, the therapy band included in the pack and the exercises. The therapy balls are used while you’re sitting down, to help strengthen the flexors in your forefoot. These muscles help ‘grip’ the floor when you walk creating a more efficient gait. Below is an instructional video on how to use the foot therapy ball.
The muscle strengthening and stretching exercises featured in the AchillesFixKit booklet all help toward rehabilitating the pain, and these can be accessed from the AchillesFixKit Hub.
Calf muscle exercises are included in the Alleviate Heel Pain Kit booklet, but below is an instructional video to help you get the most from the exercises.
