Hi and thanks for the query, Richard.Yes, you should always use the heel cups on both the feet since, stress is more on the foot that is without the heel cup and causes aggravation of disease process. So, for symmetry, balance and halt in any progression of the disease - it is best to use heel pads in both the feet.Use any brand of "in sole gel heel pads / inserts" available at your pharmacy. Please do not forget to leave a positive rating.Best.
