Plantar Fasciitis Causes and Treatments.pdf
2. Plantar Fasciitis Shoes
Of the many causes of plantar fasciitis, one out of the most prevalent
is an improperly fitted shoe. It is very important to pay attention to
having an appropriate shoe for daily use and for sports.
A badly fitting shoe can cause painful problems in the feet, especially
for athletes, and can lead to plantar fasciitis. Shoes having
inadequate cushioning at the heel and the forefoot and lacking in
proper support around the arch and the middle of the foot may put a
lot of stress on the plantar fascia while running, jumping or
exercising. Excessive pressure and stress result in pain and
inflammation in the plantar fascia.

Shoes specially designed for the patients of plantar fasciitis are
available and do not require additional orthotics for pain relief.
These shoes come with all the built-in features to provide relief from
pain and also help to overcome the deficiency in the biomechanics of
the feet. Those experiencing plantar fasciitis due to abnormal gait or
flat feet may use motion-controlled shoes. These shoes are designed
to be heavy and inflexible, with thick heels and dual-density midsoles
in order to correct the walking style of a person. These shoes are
built upon a straight last
A more flexible shoe with a relatively lesser dual-density midsole and
heel than the motion-controlled shoes are available for people with
less severe problems. These are called stability shoes and are built
upon a semi-curved last.
People suffering from planar fasciitis owing to high arches may buy
shoes that are flexible and well cushioned with soft midsole. These
shoes have a semi-curved or a curved last.
