You can avoid surgery for plantar fasciitis with insoles for plantar fasciitis.
When you have pain near your heel on the bottom of your foot, it’s most likely plantar fasciitis. This pain is especially bad in the morning when you get out of bed in the morning. About 15% of the population has it, and it’s usually due to overuse, such as standing for long periods of time.
The fascia that connects to your heel thickens in plantar fasciitis to more than double the normal thickness in those without the disorder. There can be microtears in the fascia that cause scarring and then bone formation in this fascia. Any time there’s movement in this fascia, the fascia sends out pain signals to the foot.
The good news is that you can find insoles for plantar fasciitis that are quite effective at helping relieving your pain. Did you know that 1 out of every four people are helped significantly from stretching the Achilles tendon three times a day for a few minutes each time.
When you have plantar fasciitis, you will need the following features in your insoles for plantar fasciitis:
• arch support
• deep heel cup
• flexible in the forefoot
• shock absorbing sections on the bottom of the insert if possible or on the entire length of the insoles for plantar fasciitis
