What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

If you experience even mild heel pain, it may be due to tearing and inflammation of the plantar fascia, a strong ligament that attaches at the heel bone (calcaneus) and runs under the arch to end at the base of your toes. If this ligament becomes stretched or develops microtears, it can lead to the condition known as plantar fasciitis. People experiencing plantar fasciitis will complain of heel and arch pain, often with their first steps in the morning or after periods of inactivity.

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

The main cause of plantar fasciitis is excess pressure on the plantar fascia ligament. This may occur due to over-pronation, very high or very low arches, excess body weight, a tight Achilles tendon, and repeated stress on the foot such as during running. Women may also experience plantar fasciitis during late stages of pregnancy.

Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can be treated by addressing any underlying causes first. This often involves lifestyle changes such as wearing orthopedic shoes for plantar fasciitis. The pain of plantar fasciitis is treated with rest, ice, and therapies such as injections. Physical therapy and stretching are necessary to strengthen the plantar fascia and provide long-term relief.

Features to look for in shoes for PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Extra Arch Support

Finding supportive shoes for plantar fasciitis is critical. Support should include a sturdy outsole, cushioned midsole, and an anatomically shaped insole with a strong arch. Many Orthofeet shoes even have an added arch boosting system to provide additional support.

Rocking Motion

Doctor recommended shoes for plantar fasciitis will include a rocking motion that helps reduce strain on the plantar fascia and make walking easier. The heel softens impact as you step down and the toe spring takes advantage of your momentum to propel you forward.

Cushioned Heel Cup

Good shoes for plantars fasciitis will concentrate cushioning in a flexible heel that molds to your foot when you step into the shoe. Orthofeet Premium Orthotic Insoles feature additional foam padding in the heel to absorb shock and adapt to your unique foot shape.
