Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis sufferers find extra support in Dr Foot Pro Insoles!
If you suffer from plantar fascitis or heel pain, you've found a friend in these ultra-supportive foot supports. The soft cover and the flexible EVA base material create an excellent arch support which immediately treats the cause of the heel pain.
These are the orthotics we give to our patients in clinic who are suffering from heel pain. With plantar fascitis, the elastic plantar fascia is strained due to improver flexion. This strong structure is designed to spring with the bounce of each step, but can be damaged due to a variety of reasons.
We have often found in clinic that patients who get plantar fasciitis also get damage to the fatty pad directly under the heel which is why it is important to offer additional padding under the heel of the orthotic. The Dr Foot Pro Insoles have an integrated poron heel pad built into them which absorbs the impact of standing and walking. Along with the supportive but not rigid arch support and the two options we strongly recommend this orthotic applies gentle and supportive pressure to the fascia to allow it to heal.
Option 1 lifts the plantar fascia from the medial tubercle of heel (this is the spot that is usually most painful). If you run your finger down the arch of your foot towards your heel there will be a spot on the inside of the heel/arch which will be considerably more painful than the rest of the heel, this area needs to be off loaded which is why we recommend option 1. Option 9 takes the strain off the fascia by using the forefoot to reduce tension of the fascia.
It is important that the orthotics are not used in isolation, you need to do stretches too, view heel pain stretches here. Print these out and do them everyday along with wearing the orthotics and you will get relief from your heel pain.
Dr Foot Pro 3/4 length insoles provide the support you need to insure immediate relief from heel pain.
Tip: For plantar fasciitis add option 1 (4 degrees) and option 9. lateral forefoot wedge. The wedge on the inside of the heel lifts the plantar fascia were it is most sore and evidence has suggested that lateral forefoot wedging (outside of the foot) produces significant reduction in symptoms.
