Who would have thought that shoes could be the answer to plantar fasciitis pain? We have explained how shoes can help prevent pain, heal your feet and help you get back on the right foot below.
Can Arch Support Help My Plantar Fasciitis Pain?
Shoes that are designed with dense layers of foam underneath the arch are called “support shoes”. The design is commonly referred to as the medial post, and was originally developed to counter pronation. Search for shoes with this design when you’re starting your hunt for plantar fasciitis footwear. These shoes take stress off the arch; ultimately reducing stress on the plantar fascia. In most cases, they make great running shoes that are also excellent for casual wear and walking.
The Right Shoe Will Strengthen Your Plantar Fascia
Shoes with the right amount of support and firmness will help strengthen the plantar fascia. A good shoe is an important part of the equation in healing. They can provide additional support while stabilizing the heel at the same time. Choose a shoe that supports the arch of your foot, that ultimately absorbs shock, and reduces pressure to the heel. It’s important for the shoe to cushion inflamed and stressed ligaments in the foot, and allow the muscles in the feet to strengthen and heal.
Shoes Can Reduce Symptoms
The right shoe can reduce painful symptoms for conditions like tendonitis, plantar fasciitis and shin splints. Support, cushioning and proper arches provide the perfect atmosphere for feet to heal. Shoes with great support are excellent for suffers of plantar fasciitis. Some shoes can reduce pain experienced when walking or running. The rigid structure found in some shoes can help soothe inflamed and stressed ligaments in the feet, allowing you to heal, one step at a time!
