1. Plantar Fasciitis Education Prevention and Cures
Did you know that over 15 million people suffer from Plantar
Fasciitis? Most common cases of PF are found in middle aged people.
Plantar Fasciitis often occurs in athletes, walkers, runners, people
who stand for long periods of time and also inactive people who start
to become active again.
The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue also knows as a ligament
that connects the heel bone to the toes. The fascia supports the arch
of your foot so it is very important to always wear a shoe or shoe
insert with a great arch support. When the fascia is strained it
becomes weak, swollen and irritated and causes pain in the heel or
bottom of your foot when you walk or stand. Most people who
suffer from Plantar fasciitis experience the most pain in the morning
when they first get out of bed they feel a stabbing, burning pain in
the heel area. Overnight or after long periods of inactivity such as
working at a desk sitting for long periods of time the Plantar Fascia
will tighten up causing pain when you get up to walk around.

For the lucky people who are out there who don't suffer from PF it is
very important to prevent PF because this is one ailment you never
wan't to experience. With over 15 million sufferers most people have
talk to someone who suffers from Plantar Fasciitis and I'm sure they
had nothing nice to say about it. Plantar fasciitis can be so painful I
have heard many stories that people can't work or that Plantar
Fasciitis has taken control over their life. Don't let this be you
educate yourself and prevent it from happening to you. To prevent

Plantar Fasciitis it is very important to have a good arch support for
your shoes I would recommend a removable insole so you can trade
it in and out of different shoes. The insole that I would recommend
would be Superfeet. Superfeet offer ESS which stands for
encapsulating stabilizer system which provides ideal biomechanical
support which allows the foot to move through its full range of
motion which will lower the risk of fatigue and injury. Superfeet
offers many different insoles according to what type of arch you
have, and with a perfect fit arch support you will alleviate plantar
fasciitis pain and help reduce pronation.

1.) Wear shoes that offer the proper arch support.
2.) Always stretch and warm up before any sports activities.
3.) Keep your body at a healthy weight.
4.) Stretch your legs, ankles and feet every morning before stepping
out of bed.
The number one cure for Plantar Fasciitis is the HTP heel seats for
day time therapy and a night splint when you sleep to keep your foot
at a 90 degree angle. The heel seats are a deep heel cup that uses an
acupressure bar that keeps the fascia stretched all day with every
step you take. The pressure that's placed on the plantar fascia works
as a day time therapy to actually cure the fasciitis. The heel seats are
a cure they don't just cover up symptoms they cure it for good. The
heel seats are a day time therapy so at night when you sleep or when
your feet are in a resting position you will need to wear a night splint
to get rid of your morning foot pain. Morning foot pain is most
common with Plantar Fasciitis. What happens is your feet are under

blankets they are positioned where the fascia is shortened so with
the first few steps out of bed the muscle that has been contracted all
night stretches and pulls causing the severe pain in the morning. The
night splint is made to keep the foot at a 90 degree angle while you
sleep. The foot only needs a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia by
positioning the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion. The night
splint reduces the muscle contracting back and also reduces
inflammation from plantar fasciitis. The night splint will help
promote healing to the injured muscles and tendons in the foot.

2. Plantar Fasciitis Causes
Heel pain is commonly a result of plantar fasciitis. This means that
the long ligament on the bottom of the foot (the plantar fascia) is
inflamed. Plantar fasciitis causes are varied, however overuse and
foot structure are top on the list. In fact, plantar fasciitis occurs so
often with runners that many know the condition simply as "runners
heel." Whether we call it plantar fasciitis (plan-tar fash-ee-eye-tiss)
or runners heel, it is an extremely painful condition of the foot.
Plantar fasciitis heel pain can begin when the plantar fascia ligament
becomes inflamed. (Ligaments connect bones to bones, tendons
connect muscles to bones). The plantar fascia ligament is very strong,
like an industrial strength rubber band. Due to the excessive
movement of the bones in the foot walking, running and jumping,
the plantar fascia receives tremendous pull, especially at the end
attaching to the heel bone (calcaneus). While pain can manifest
anywhere along the the plantar fascia, from the heel to the ball of
the foot under the toes, it is most commonly this heel area that
announces with pain that the ligament is inflamed. Often, the first
shot of this sharp heel pain is often when weight is first put on the
foot after getting out of bed. The pain on attempting to walk after a
period of foot rest is due to the band shortening during rest.

Risk factors include:
-High foot arch
-Low foot arch (flat foot)
-Tight calf muscles
-Lack of proper arch support and inner sole cushioning in shoes

-Chronic overdoing walking, running, jumping, climbing
-Sudden weight gain
-More common in people over 40
-More common in diabetics
-More common in people with arthritis
-More common in pregnant women
-Underuse/overuse syndrome: infrequent but vigorous or walking,
hiking, athletics, shopping, etc.)
-Dehydration: neglecting to sip water during sports, training, hiking,
walking, etc
The sooner appropriate plantar fasciits treatment is started after the
first symptoms, the faster the healing phase usually is. Your doctor
may diagnose plantar fasciitis and make recommendations, but it is
what you do (and don't do!) that will make the difference in how fast
you heel pain is resolved and whether you avoid a recurrence in the
It's advisable to see your doctor rather than self-diagnose your heel
pain as plantar fasciitis. Though it is the most common cause of heel
pain, other conditions can cause it, too.

clients with plantar fasciitis and other conditions.

3. Choosing the Right Plantar Fasciitis Orthotics
Plantar fasciitis or inflammation of the plantar fascia happens when
the plantar fascia suffers very small tears at its insertion into the heel
bone, or along its length. With poor biomechanics, excessive use or
the presence of other triggers, the force on the plantar fascia during
the process of walking and running and the shift of body weight from
one foot to the other can twist the fascia from the heel and lead to
microscopic tears.
Wearing an orthotic device or special plantar fasciitis insole is an
great way of reducing plantar fasciitis pain and help the healing
process. Orthotics and insoles are effective because they flex during
walking or running, providing just the appropriate amount of
pressure and support for the damaged heel as your weight shifts
without interfering with the fit of the shoe.

A number of patients settle for a normal padded shoe insert from the
drug store to relieve pain. The problem with this is that normal shoe
inserts are designed only to provide added padding to a shoe, and
nothing more. Basic cushioning is not enough to support the affected
area and supporting the affected ligament which is essential to
protect the damage and swelling in the tissue.
Plantar fasciitis insoles serve to straighten any misalignment in the
patient's foot, cutting down the pain and even correcting the posture
issues that contributed to the plantar fasciitis in the beginning.
Patients have commented that after wearing plantar fasciitis
orthotics, their feet feel more supple and find standing, walking, and
even running much less painful and after some time, pain free.

Insoles or orthotics provide an effective cost-effective treatment as
opposed to buying several different pairs of shoes. One set of insoles
can be taken from the shoe and put into another set.
Early diagnosing and a structured treatment plan are important for
curing the condition. If treatment is delayed or inadequate in the
initial stages of plantar fasciitis, the condition can take up to
eighteen months or more to be fully treated. Nevertheless by
sticking to a properly detailed treatment plan and merging several of
the individual treatments available, thankfully in the vast majority of
cases, non-invasive treatment cures the condition. Only in the most
extreme cases is surgery required.
