Is plantar fasciitis a pain in your arch?

Buy the best insoles for plantar fasciitis

The pain of plantar fasciitis is caused by tiny tears in the thick, fibrous band of tissue that reaches from the heel to the toes, which supports the muscles and arch of the foot. When the plantar fascia becomes overly stretched, tiny tears occur in its surface. The problem is aggravated by the wearing of shoes with no arch support, resulting in your entire weight bearing down on your instep.

Pain is usually worst either first thing in the morning or after prolonged sitting, where the muscle has begun to try to heal itself. Because the healing is not complete, putting weight back on your foot causes repeat tearing of the muscle and the associated pain.

The fluid in our best insoles for plantar fasciitis creates a natural arch support, cushioning and protecting the muscle, holding it in place to allow the natural healing process to continue. If the insoles are put in slippers and worn before standing in the morning, they can immediately support the muscle and prevent this tearing from occurring. The gentle massaging action of the insole also increases the circulation, bringing down extra oxygen to the wound and helping to speed up the process of healing throughout the day.
