How these insoles help with foot and heel pain (AKA Plantar fasciitis)
Plantar fasciitis is a very common foot injury and is a leading cause of foot and heel pain in adults with 1 in 3 getting this injury at least once in their lifetime. Plantar fasciitis is an overuse injury that is mainly caused by over stretching and damage to the plantar fascia ligament. There are lots of different factors that can contributing to pressure and strain on your arches including but not limited to
- Wearing ill fitting and unsupportive shoes that position the feet in a unnatural and harmful position. Wearing improper footwear can also cause other problems to develop such as bunions, blisters metatarsalgia and Achilles tendinitis that can also cause plantar fasciitis.
- Obesity or sudden weight gain placing extra pressure on your feet which can result in damage
- Biomechanical imbalances such as over pronation. Pronation is one of the most important parts of the gait cycle. Pronation helps to adapt your foot to changing ground contours, absorb shock, shift weight from the heels to the toes and help to push your foot off the ground and propel you forward during the gait cycle. If your foot rolls excessively outwards or inwards then this is what is known as excessive pronation. Excessive pronation can cause strain and pressure on the arch of your foot which overtime can cause damage and inflammation to develop.
- Not properly stretching your calf and foot muscles before exercise and vigorous activity involving your feet. Tight muscles in your foot and calf can make you more prone to over stretching and damaging your feet.
- Being on your feet for long periods or running on hard surfaces can damage your feet through shock and the build up of shock underneath you plantar fascia causing it to become inflamed.
The plantar fascia is a ligament that helps support your metatarsal bones and connecting your toes to to your heel. It is designed to support your weight and help to pronate your feet when you walk. However excessive pressure and strain on your arches can cause this ligament to become damaged and inflamed. Plantar fasciitis causes tight and sore pain that can be worsen if left untreated. Plantar fasciitis can often takes several weeks to fully recover. If you have plantar fasciitis or simply want to avoid getting it wearing arch supports in your shoes will help.
How foot arch support can help YOU
If you have plantar fasciits then the function of your feet maybe affected and your feet may not be able to give you proper support, absorb shock or pronate properly when you walk. This can make you more susceptible to further damage to the plantar fascia. Wearing arch supports helps to protect your feet from further damage by supporting the arch and stop your foot from rolling inwards or outwards excessively and absorbing shock.
