Plantar fasciitis refers to inflammation of the bundle of tissue, known as the plantar fascia, which connects the heel to the toes in the foot. This condition commonly results in a stabbing heel pain that can make it extremely difficult to walk and run. Plantar fasciitis is a common condition for athletes, including runners, tennis players and baseball players due to the stress that these activities place on the feet, ankles and calves. Additionally, those that are inactive and live a more sedentary lifestyle suffer from these symptoms as well. The industrial population, and service workers that are putting tremendous stress working on a hard surface all-day long also suffer from plantar fasciitis.
Although plantar fasciitis can often be treated with basic therapies like gentle stretching, rest, ice and compression, some people continue dealing with heel pain, forefoot pain and other symptoms for weeks or even months. It’s important to always consult with a doctor if you are dealing with pain that lasts longer than a few days to a week. One solution that many people dealing with plantar fasciitis turn to are over-the-counter inserts, or custom foot orthotics, designed to better support and cushion the foot to relieve symptoms.
How can custom foot orthotics help plantar fasciitis?
The primary benefit of custom shoe inserts for plantar fasciitis is that they are custom made from a mold of your feet. Although all feet are designed to function the same way, like any other part of the body, everyone’s feet are going to be unique. This can make certain people more prone to injury due to factors like high or low arches, wider or narrower feet and less padding on their forefoot or heel.
By taking a mold of your feet, our specialists can make inserts that not only fit better, but are designed to provide additional cushioning and support where your feet need it most. The right pair of custom shoe inserts can help relieve painful plantar fasciitis symptoms as you continue working toward recovery from this condition.
