|Plantar Fasciitis is a common and often painful condition in which the plantar fascia, a thick, fibrous band of tissue on the bottom surface of the foot, becomes strained and inflamed. When these tissues are stretched repeatedly or too aggressively, the fibers can break down where the tissue extends from the heel bone to the toes, causing aching pain. It is estimated that approximately 2 million Americans a year suffer from plantar fasciitis. It is often a chronic, reoccurring condition and can be difficult to treat. Luckily, with proper shoe insoles for plantar fasciitis and other simple measures, plantar fasciitis relief is achievable!|

PLANTAR FASCIITIS TREATMENT PLAN
For the most effective plantar fasciitis relief, use daytime and night time solutions to help heal the plantar fascia and relieve the associated pain. During the day, keep the tendons elongated to prevent strain and promotehealing. Often the pain is greatest with the first few steps in the morning after the plantar fascia contracts during sleep, so keeping the plantar fascia stretched during sleep is key to fast, effective relief. Use therapies during daily activity and during rest or sleep for a comprehensive plantar fasciitis therapy plan.
