Insoles for Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation caused by excessive stretching of the Plantar Fascia, the thick band of tissue that runs underneath your foot connecting the heel bone to the toes. Also referred to as Heel Pain and Arch Pain, this condition is most often caused by over-pronation (or flat feet), but can also result from a sudden increase in excercise levels, being overweight and from poor fitting or poor quality footwear.
Symptoms include pain in the heel and/or bottom of the foot, particulary when standing or walking. The pain can remain intense even when later at rest.
A well-fitting orthotic will provide support to the arch of your foot, reducing the stresses on the Plantar Fascia. The orthotic also compensates for the general lack of support in most types of footwear.
