With Plantar Fasciitis, your first step is usually the worst step. You’ve tried different shoes, drug store cushions and inserts… they work for a day or two and you still have heel, arch or ball of foot pain! Your Local FOOT SOLUTIONS Store has the right solution for Plantar Fasciitis.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Simply stated, on man-made surfaces we often roll inward (pronation) flattening the arch and overstretching the plantar fascia (a thick, powerful layer of ligament-like tissue that fans out over the sole of your foot). Your feet strike the hard, man-made surface an average of 5 to 10 thousand times a day. With pronation, the plantar fascia tissue gets continuously overstretched and inflamed and that’s why it hurts!
• Custom Arch Supports
• Over-the-Counter Arch Supports
• Proper Fitting Shoes
• Shoe Modification
• Heel cushions, night boots, and other pain relief products.
• Rocker Bottom Shoes to reduce pressure on the ball of foot and joints.
To manage the pain, a frozen bottle of water rolled under your foot before going to sleep.
To prevent pain, stretch before getting out of bed. Lie in bed and put a towel or sheet around the ball of your foot and gently pull. Stretch by pointing and flexing your toes. Do this until you feel like the area has been warmed up, then start your day by slipping your foot into slippers with arch supports. When you take a shower, have a pair of sandals with support to step on instead of the tub/tile.
