The plantar fascia is a band of fibrous tissue that originates on the inner part of the heel bone and fans out beneath the arch to the balls of the feet and inserts into the toes. It forms the longitudinal arch of the foot and functions as a shock-absorber when you walk or run. Irritation or inflammation of the plantar fascia occurs primarily at it is attachment to the heel bone or calcaneus.
Symptoms of plantar fasciitis normally take place in the morning when the patient gets out of bed. The pain commonly subsides after a couple of minutes, but returns with prolonged sitting. This is due to a tightening or contracture of the plantar fascia at rest. When standing the fascia stretchings “suddenly” causing pain at the insertion. As the fascia “stretches out”, the pain subsides. If untreated, the pain worsens and increments in duration. Plantar fasciitis is further aggravated by poor fitting shoes, barefoot ambulation, and aggressive sports activities.
Treatment for plantar fasciitis is commonly conservative in nature. Rest, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, padding, substitute shoe gear, arch supports, orthotics, stretching exercises ordinarily improve the condition. Cortisone injections are now and again necessary to reduce severe pain, and if conservative treatment and time have not bettered the condition, surgery is once in a while indicated.
Arch supports and orthotics (custom made arch supports) are a very usual treatment modality among Podiatrists, Chiropractors and Therapists and have proven very successful in controlling unnatural gait, exuberant pronation and help of the plantar fascia. In numerous instances, these gadgets can not be worn due to shoegear restrictions. Since most of the harm and irritation of the plantar fascia occurs for the duration of the day, with prolonged standing, walking and physical activity, an substitute to orthotics and arch supports was limited. Until Swede-O invented a distinctive and supportive brace called The Heel-Rite.
The Heel-Rite is a combining ankle brace and arch support. The patented Heel-Rite provides effective daytime treatment for Plantar Fasciitis. The Heel-Rite is comfortable to wear and low profile in design.
The brace holds a support strap that lifts the arch and provide compression to the plantar fascia and stabilization of the longitudinal arch.
Another distinguishable feature of the Heel-Rite is the brace material. Swede-O utilizes a Thermoskin Thermal fabric that has been clinically proven to increase subcutaneous skin temperature 2-3°F for optimal level of heat therapy. Thermoskin’s patented Trioxon® lining brings about a micro-climate that maintains elevated skin temperature while still permitting the skin to ventilate for long-term user comfort. The spiral structure of the Trioxon lining lifts moisture away from the skin and traps air within the lining to aid prevent exuberant perspiration.
This combining of ankle and foot stability, heat therapy, and arch aid with compression makes this a outstanding substitute to bulky arch supports and orthotic inserts. The Heel-Rite fits into most shoes and is very adjustable, coming in just two sizes. It is universal for left or right ankles.
It is always commended that you consult with your treating doctor to determine the cause of your orthopedic condition and the suitable treatment.
