Plantar Fasciitis is a medical condition that is caused by the inflammation in the connective tissue of the foot known as the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia runs through the arch of the foot, connecting the heel and the toes. When it becomes inflamed you may experience pain in you heel or your arch. This pain is usually worst in the morning, but it tends to persist throughout the day. It may also arise sharply when you try to walk or run. The condition is caused by strain of the arch of the foot. It may simply be the result of wearing shoes that don't offer enough support for a long period of time. It affects people with a high arch the most. It is also related to strain on the arch as a result of extra weight from obesity or pregnancy, or strain as the result of exercise that puts a great deal of stress on the foot. If you think that you have this condition, talk to a doctor about how to take care of it. Short term relief can be provided by an ice pack. Your doctor may also teach you how to stretch your feet or recommend devices that help you perform useful exercises. Shock wave therapy is a new option that is available. Surgery may be performed in the worst cases. Your treatment is unlikely to be successful if you are not wearing shoes that offer support. Shoes must fit the arch of your foot so that no unnecessary strain is put on it. One of the best options if provided by Kuru footwear, which was designed by podiatrists. They designed the shoe to contour to your foot with a special material. It is intended specifically for people with plantar fasciitis. Another excellent option is New Balance, which offers many shoes with great support for the arch of the foot at a good price. Comfortable sandals that offer support are Birkenstock, which are extremely comfortable. Other excellent brands include Sanita, Darco Gentlesleep, Finn Comfort Shoes, Bite Arch Support Shoes, Acor, PW Minor, Standing Comfort, Orthofeed, and Name Mephisto. Be sure to replace shoes sooner than you normally would. You cannot allow them to wear down, as they will no longer provide the support that you need. This is very important, as if your arch is not properly supported you can undo all the progress that you make in your treatment.
