Heel Pain (Plantar Fasciitis)

Plantar means bottom of the foot, and fascia is the fibrous tissues that helps tether the heel bone (calcaneus) to the heads of the metatarsal bones found at the base of your toes. Plantar Fasciitis occurs when this area of the foot becomes too strained and inflamed.

Although Plantar Fasciitis will usually heel itself over time, it can be quite painful and uncomfortable in everyday life - particularly in the mornings. To combat this pain, many people wear special insoles for Plantar Fasciitis, designed to support the arch of the foot and reduce strain.

In addition, stretching and strengthening the foot with a HeelFixKit will help the road to recovery.

Typically, plantar fasciitis shows itself as a sharp stabbing pain when you first put your foot to the floor, usually after a night’s sleep. This pain is under the heel and slightly to the inside of the heel.

Upon walking, the sharp pain wears off but a deep ache remains.

The sooner treatment starts the better. For some people Plantar Fasciitis can take months or even years to heal by itself.

In the short term simple foot strapping will help, just to enable less painful walking. Stretching and strengthening the calf muscles of your legs, and the flexor (gripping) muscles in your toes will also help. Longer term treatments should address the mechanics of the foot and involve a rehabilitation programme.

The HeelFixKit does all of the above, targeting heel pain caused by Plantar Fasciitis through exercises, therapy balls, tape and insoles in one simple solution.
