What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Sometimes referred to as “policeman’s heel”, Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory condition that causes chronic pain in the heel of the foot, and sometimes the arch.
Here at Footlogics we have a range of affordable orthotics available to help relieve the pain and discomfort caused by Plantar Fasciitis.
Plantar Fasciitis Insoles
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation in a tendon of the foot that can result in serious heel and arch pain. This condition is usually at its worst after periods of sleep or inactivity, with many living with it describing the first steps out of bed in the morning as the most uncomfortable. It is a common condition and can be caused by consistently spending long periods of time on your feet, a pre-existing medical condition, or from overstretching.
Here at Footlogics we have a number of high-quality Plantar Fasciitis insoles available to help our customers go about their day-to-day lives with as little foot pain and discomfort as possible.
Plantar Fasciitis symptoms and causes
If you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis, your pain is likely the worst when you take your first steps out of bed in the morning. It is usually a sharp, stabbing pain at the bottom or front of the heel bone which is most severe after long periods of inactivity (sitting, driving or sleeping). Throughout the course of the day the pain typically diminishes, transforming into a lingering, dull ache.
Plantar Fasciitis is primarily caused by an abnormal pronation of the foot (over-pronation). The most common contributory factors include:
- Weight gain
- Jobs that require standing or walking on hard surfaces for extended periods of time
- Low quality, unsupportive shoes
At Footlogics we provide our customers effective orthotics for Plantar Fasciitis. Developed by Australian podiatrists, our orthotics range addresses the cause of this foot common condition – excess pronation.
Reliable Plantar Fasciitis Insoles & Other Treatment Options
Plantar Fasciitis insoles from Footlogics are an excellent way to treat the effects and causes of heel and arch pain, while ensuring your feet receive the support they need throughout the day.
Our insoles will help to correct the position and shape of the foot, and allow you to enjoy a life that isn’t hampered by frequent heel aches or arch pain.
How Pain Occurs
The plantar fascia is a band of tissue under your foot running from your heel to your toes. In over-pronating feet, the plantar fascia is excessively stretched with every step, which results in inflammation, irritation and pain where the fascia attaches to the heel bone. In some cases, the pain even extends into the arch of the foot. This perpetual pulling of the Fascia at the heel bone often leads to the development of a bony growth in the heel, called a heel spur.
As you rest (for example, when you’re asleep), the plantar fascia becomes shorter and tighter. The moment you get up, all of your body weight goes straight to your feet, forcing the fascia to immediately stretch and lengthen which causes micro-tears in the tissue. This is why pain is the most severe during your first few steps in the morning or after long periods of rest.
Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Doctors recommend the following treatment methods:
- Rest (avoid high impact sports, running, walking long distances and standing for long periods of time)
- Ice (2-3 times a day for 5-10 minutes at a time)
- Daily, targeted exercise program
- Cortisone-steroid injections (usually performed by a GP directly into the heel bone)
Orthotic treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
For long-term, sustainable pain relief, you must treat the root cause of the problem: abnormal foot mechanics. This is exactly what orthotic insoles do.
Footlogics orthotics were developed by Australian podiatrists and have been specifically designed to support the arches of the feet and control over-pronation. They help minimize and release the tension on the Plantar Fascia to treat the source of the problem and allow the inflamed tissue to heal fast. For added comfort and relief from pain, Footlogics orthotics also have a shock-absorbing heel pad that reduces the level of impact on your heel as you walk.
Treatment Through Daily Exercise
Recent studies have shown that the most effective long-term treatment for Plantar Fasciitis is a combination of wearing orthotic insoles and performing a series of daily exercises. Specific, targeted exercises lengthen and increase the flexibility of the muscles and tendons in the feet, which thereby reduces the tension placed on the Plantar Fascia.
