This orthotic device is specifically designed for heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis. This condition is also known as policeman’s heel or foot, postman’s heel or foot, heel spur and clinically as plantar fasciopathy.

Classic symptoms are: • Heel pain worse in the morning, rising from sitting.
• Heel pain during longer periods of exercise and standing.


The condition is caused by over strain of an important fibrous band (plantar fascia or plantar aponeurosis) that runs from the heel under the foot and divides into slips running to each toe.

This plantar fascia is used to help the muscles support the arch of the foot especially as the heel is about to lift off the ground. Once irritated can hurt to load the heel, but usually the pain is worse just as you are about to push off your foot.

To heal up and settle down the injury needs rest and time, but this is difficult with the foot, and too much rest can weaken the foot causing more problems.

Therefore footwear and insoles that reduce the strain, and exercises that strengthen the foot are usually the best combination. Stapping the foot up for a while can help too.

The Condition Specific PF insole is one of very few foot orthotic devices specifically designed for heel pain caused by this condition. It has the following features:

• Heel lift, which reduces the strain on the plantar fascia.
• Arch support to take the load from the heel.
• A heel dell and shock dot positioned to take pressure off the most sensitive area of the heel.
• Deep heel cup to hold the soft tissue around the heel keeping the heel fat pad under the heel, preventing it from squeezing sideways.
• Forefoot support to stabilise the foot as the load moves from the heel to the forefoot.


Suitable Shoes;

• Deep casual shoes
• Deep lace up shoes
• Trainers (recommended)
• Hiking boots.


AVOID VERY FLAT SHOES

What else can I do to help?

Exercises are really important to resolve this condition. See one ones we have linked to the PF insole.

• 14 days supply of heel pain relief tape.

Sometimes steroid injects can control the pain, but shouldn’t be used on their own but in combination with the right shoes, exercises and insoles.

By exercising and strengthening the foot it is possible to help speed up the recovery process of heel pain and return to whatever activity the wearer loves to do far earlier than if you don’t do them. You need to be regular with them, doing them two or three times daily. Do them always after exercises and first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

By using our foot therapy balls, mobilises the plantar fascia and strengthens the support muscles underneath. Using the therapy band to pull your foot up before you get out of bed often relieves the pain you feel on first loading your heel.

Therapy Ball

PASSIVE CALF STRETCH
Sit with one leg straight out in front of you. Put a band, towel or belt around your foot.
With your foot turned slightly inwards towards the opposite leg, gently pull the band and feel the stretch in your calf. Hold approx 30 secs.
Repeat 4 times before getting out of bed, or standing after rest.

CALF STRETCH
Using a wall for support, place a leg with the knee straight behind you and the heel flat on the floor. Roll slightly onto the outside of your foot. With the front leg bent at the knee slowly lean into the wall until a gentle stretch is felt in the calf. Hold the stretch for 60 seconds. Repeat 2 times, 2 or 3 daily. Repeat on the other leg if this feels tight too, or you have heel pain in both heels.
