If you have recently been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, you’ve probably wondered whether custom orthotics might help. For starters, plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that often affects the thick layer of tissue under our feet, particularly the arch and the heel. It is common among the elderly and sportspeople who suffer from insufficient gait or tend to over-train.
A pair of custom orthotics can improve plantar fasciitis by correcting excessive movements, supporting the arch, and preventing poor weight transfer that often triggers the pain. Orthotics can also go a long way in cushioning the sensitive, deteriorating heel pad.
