What are orthotics and how do they work?
If you are suffering from heel pain or have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, then orthotics can help. Orthotic insoles for plantar fasciitis are placed inside the shoes and worn throughout the day. They act not only as shock absorbers to relieve the heel pain, they also structurally support the foot thus assisting in rectifying the cause.
What is plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is extremely common, affecting approximately 1 in 10 of the population. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot, from the heel bone to the toes. When this ligament or tissue becomes inflamed it causes heel pain - plantar fasciitis.
Misalignment of your feet can cause this problem as can overuse – it is very common among runners and athletes.
Who does plantar fasciitis affect?
In general, it is those who have to spend long periods of time on their feet due to their employment, athletes or those who are overweight who tend to be prone to plantar fasciitis. But for some individuals, there is no identifiable reason as to why they suffer from heel pain or plantar fasciitis.
What are the symptoms of plantar fasciitis?
Although it varies between individuals, the majority of plantar fasciitis sufferers describe it as a sharp stabbing pain in the heel. Generally, symptoms tend to be worse first thing in the morning and after long periods of sitting or standing.
