The Arch Support achieves results similar to taping techniques by offering upward compression to the arch. This is achievable because the brace is made from stretchable material. Therefore, support is present not only when the foot is on the ground, but when the foot is elevated between steps. Soft material offers a comfortable pad for the arch when the foot does touch the ground.Now with compression pad for additional support! Sizing: Measurement based on shoe size. One Pair.

Plantar Fasciitis

Medical Definition: Tearing, excessive stretching, and/or inflammation of the plantar fascia (a tough, fibrous band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot with attachments to the heel bone and to the base of the toes).

Causes: Overpronation, long distance running, aging, and weight gain can all contribute to excessive stress on the plantar fascia, resulting in plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can cause bone spurs as calcium is deposited where the fascia is torn away.

Symptoms: Pain in the medial (inner) aspect of the heel, where the plantar fascia attaches to the heel bone. Typically, pain is worse in the morning after the fascia has contracted during the night. With the first steps of the day, the fascia is stretched, resulting in pain.

Recommended Treatment: R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Reduce activity to promote healing. Avoid downhill and hard surface running. Apply Ice for 10-15 minutes after each workout to reduce inflammation and pain. (If any skin irritation or adverse reaction occurs due to icing, see your medical doctor). Massage (a tennis ball may be useful) and stretching (Heel, Calf) of the plantar fascia and calf muscle. Decrease pronation problems with proper shoes and orthotics. Wear arch supports. As with any orthopedic injury, a consultation with a sports medicine professional is recommended.
