Plantar fasciitis and orthotics — how to know when it’s time to get fitted

Biocorrect, LLC


Plantar fasciitis is an injury that can put you on the sidelines of your life. Although it isn’t a serious condition and often improves with time, the stabbing heel pain can be excruciating for anyone who experiences it. Workdays can become long and unbearable, favorite pastimes need to be avoided and family activities can be seriously disrupted. 

You should work with your doctor or other qualified health care professional to diagnose and treat plantar fasciitis. He or she can recommend basic treatments like rest, ice, compression and elevation to ease symptoms while you monitor the progress of this condition. One form of treatment that many people seek out is getting fitted for custom orthotics. 

Due to the cost and time involved, this can be a relatively big decision. To help you make it on an informed and confident basis, we’ve created the following quick guide. 

Signs that you need orthotics for your plantar fasciitis

While everyone is different, here are some indicators that custom orthotics may be able to help your plantar fasciitis: 

  • You have frequently recurring bouts of plantar fasciitis.
  • You’ve bought specialty shoes but pain still persists.
  • You’ve attempted treatment methods like targeted stretches and exercises. 
  • Store-bought insoles or heel supports have been unable to provide relief.
  • You’re dealing with related issues like ankle pain or knee pain.

In the past, custom orthotics for plantar fasciitis could be prohibitively expensive, but advances in technology have made it possible to create high-grade insoles on a more cost-effective basis.
