The Healing Sole flip flop is a brand new plantar fasciitis treatment and like all new products, it starts a lot of conversations and gets people asking a lot of questions. We do our best to answer every question we receive on Facebook, Twitter and through our website, and we want to continue to provide as much information as possible to those suffering with heel pain.
What The Healing Sole Doesn't Do
This flip flop is not designed to make changes anyone's alignment. That is a decision between you and your physician. Should your physician feel that you need alignment changes, then custom inserts in your daily shoes are most likely necessary. The Healing Sole is made with universal treatment principles in mind and as such, is not designed to make any major changes or adjustments to the structure or alignment of your foot. The Healing Sole flip flop is a plantar fasciitis treatment that's designed to work with your existing treatment plan, but not necessarily replace it. This flip flop is not designed to replace any of your treating physician's suggestions for treatment. The Healing Sole is designed to augment any current treatment plan that you are on. You should make your physician aware of any changes you make to your current treatment plan. While not designed to replace your current treatment plan, there are times when The Healing Sole is enough by itself.
What The Healing Sole DoesThe rocker-bottom sole works for all foot types. This is similar to why post-operative boots or ankle sprain walkers all look the same. They are basically just a boot with a rocker bottom. The rocker bottom accepts high arches, low arches, flat feet, big feet and small feet. The rocker works for all types.
- The cushion zone is the medial 33% and 20% on the long access. This is a zone that encompasses the origination of the plantar fascia and/or heel spur in almost all people. Again, this is regardless of foot type.
- The structural nature of the flip flop is designed to support by not giving way; this works for all foot types.
- The metatarsal bar/arch support is designed to offload the metatarsophalangeal joints (ball of the foot) for total foot rest. This is positioned and designed to offload the toe joints regardless of foot type.
