Introduction to Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis

 

Introduction to Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis

The most common causes of heel pain is a condition called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a broad band of tissue which originates from the heel, runs along the sole of the foot and connects to the toes.

The plantar fascia works like a rubber band between the heel and the ball of your foot to form the arch of your foot. If the band is short, you'll have a high arch, and if it's long, you'll have a low arch, what some people call flat feet. A pad of fat in your heel covers the plantar fascia to help absorb the shock of walking. Plantar fasciitis is often referred to as a heel spur which is a calcium deposit in the plantar fascia attachment. The heel spur does not cause pain.

Customer Review

"I have suffered terribly with early morning heel pain and after I have rested for a little while. The heel used to throb during the day and I was always in a bad mood! Since I have been using your silicone heel cups and your sports insoles for about 4 months I have been pain free and happy!

Thanking you."
