It is common to develop plantar fasciitis if you are on your feet a lot or participate in sports. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. An increase in activities that your feet aren't used to can strain or aggravate the plantar fascia, leaving you with heel pain (for more information on why this happens, check out our blog post on it!)
The Active Plantar Fasciitis Foot Orthotic is designed to support the foot during sporting activities, supporting the foot and allowing the strained plantar fascia to heal. This foot orthotic will also prevent the plantar fasciitis from returning.
The longitudinal arch support provides some flexibility, mimicking the natural motion of the arch to absorb shock during walking and running. The heel cup holds the foot in a stable position. These two support systems help control the movements that cause plantar fasciitis and other types of foot pain.
