Biocorrect, LLC


There are shoe inserts that can help almost every type of foot issue that is interfering with your quality of life, from flat feet to arthritis. But one of the most common causes of foot pain is plantar fasciitis. This heel pain can interfere with your normal day-to-day routine by making it difficult to do simple tasks like take a walk in the park or climb stairs in your home. 

The good news is that orthotic inserts can help alleviate the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. But when should you buy them? Read on to learn about the basics of plantar fasciitis and when you should purchase inserts to help.

The basics of plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis refers to inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is a band of tissue that connects your heel to your toes and supports your foot’s arch. The foot condition is usually the result of overstretching or overuse and can cause pain, swelling and stiffness.

Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain, affecting 1 in 10 people. If you’re struggling to deal with the symptoms of plantar fasciitis, inserts can help.

When and why you should purchase inserts for plantar fasciitis

Even though plantar fasciitis is common, it shouldn’t just be brushed off. It’s important to note that orthotic inserts can’t cure plantar fasciitis, but they can help to alleviate your pain while you’re standing or walking. If you find that your symptoms consistently make it difficult to carry out your daily activities, it’s time to purchase inserts.

There are several benefits of using inserts, including:

  • Reduced pain.
  • Increased balance.
  • Improved stability.
