Best Arch Support insoles for Plantar Fasciitis

Are you suffering from heel pain? The most common cause of heel pain in adults is caused by an overuse injury called Plantar Fasciitis. In this article we will be looking at what causes plantar fasciitis, common symptoms and how to prevent and treat this injury. We will also be looking at what the best arch support insoles are available that you can wear inside your shoes to help prevent and ease plantar fasciitis effectively.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is an overuse injury that occurs when the plantar fascia ligament that stretches across the arch of your foot becomes inflamed or damaged.

How common is this injury?

Approximately 1 in 10 people suffer from Plantar Fasciitis making it one of the most common foot complaints in the world. More women than men suffer from the injury which is believed to be because women often wear more pointed shoes with higher heels than men. People with flat feet or high arches are also more likely to develop plantar fasciitis due to the strain and pressure that having these conditions put on their feet.

What are the most common symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?

If you are suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, you may experience a number of different symptoms such as pain, stiffness, inflammation, swelling and soreness around the arch and heel of your foot. These symptoms can often feel worse as you wake up in the morning and take your first steps of the day. You may also suffer from Heel spurs which are bony growths that form on your heel as part of your body’s natural defence to protect your heel from further pressure and damage. The severity of your symptoms may vary depending upon how badly damaged your plantar fascia ligament is.

What causes Plantar fasciitis?

There are many different reasons as to why you might have developed Plantar fasciitis. One of the most common reasons is because of a biomechanical imbalance such as Overpronation or Supination affecting your gait. Biomechanical imbalances such as these place abnormal load and excessive strain and pressure on your plantar fascia ligament. Overtime this strain and pressure causes micro damage to your plantar fascia ligament which builds up and causes plantar fasciitis to develop.

Having flat feet or high arches can make you predisposed to biomechanical imbalances which in turn increases your risk of developing injuries in your feet. That is why it is important if you do have flat feet or high arches to wear a pair of arch support insoles inside your shoes. A pair of arch support insoles will provide the extra support that your feet need to help correct common biomechanical imbalances that maybe affecting your gait and reduce strain and pressure off them protecting them from injury.

Other causes include wearing ill-fitting shoes such as high heels that push your feet into unnatural positions. Not properly stretching the muscles and ligaments in your feet and lower legs before exercising can also lead to you pulling and straining your plantar fascia ligament and is a very common cause of plantar fasciitis among runners and athletes.

What treatments are available to ease pain and stop it from coming back?

There are a number of conventional and unconventional treatments for Plantar fasciitis to help ease your pain and speed up your recovery. Wearing a pair of arch support insoles is one the most prescribed and recommended treatments for plantar fasciitis by podiatrists. Arch support insoles can be worn to help not only correct the way that your feet function but also help take load and pressure off your feet as you walk. This will allow your plantar fascia ligament to recovery properly without getting reinjured. Applying an ice pack and compression to the arch of your foot can help to increase blood flow to your foot to speed up healing, reduce inflammation and swelling and soothe pain. Rolling your foot over a can of pop that has been cooled in the fridge or freezer can also help ease your symptoms. Something else you can try is wearing a night splint whilst you are sleeping. Night splints are designed to keep your foot stretched at a 90-degree angle whilst you are asleep. This helps to prevent tightness in your foot when you wake up in the morning and stop pain and discomfort when you are taking your first steps in the morning.

Treating the underlining causes of your plantar fasciitis is key for proper treatment. For example, if your plantar fasciitis is caused by abnormal gait, it is best to seek medical advice and a gait assessment from a qualified podiatrist who will be able to set out a tailored treatment plan to help you correct your gait and prevent plantar fasciitis from reoccurring. It should be pointed out that the plantar fascia ligament is one of the slowest healing ligaments in the human body. This makes treating plantar fasciitis a very hard and long process.
