Plantar Fasciitis (inflammation of the plantar fascia under the foot) is a very common foot condition. Often it is associated with a ‘Heel spur’ - a bony growth in the heel area. The spur itself does not cause any pain, it’ a mere side-effect of plantar fasciitis and visible in X-ray images.
The plantar fascia is a broad, fibrous structure (a ligament) that runs under the foot from the heel to the toes. For various reasons such as injury, weight gain, age, overload, genetic factors (e.g. fallen arches of the foot), the tendon becomes excessively stretched or strained.
This causes pain and inflammation in the heel at the point where the ligament is attached to calcaneal bone. In some cases a heel spur may develop.
FootWave PLANTAR FASCIITIS support the foot in such a way that tension of the ligament is being reduced and the pressure applied to the heel is greatly diminished. Cushioning under the heel also reduces impact on the painful heel, providing extra comfort.
Recommended by GPs, orthopedists, podiatrists and physiotherapists, FootWave inserts have already helped thousands of people. Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe, suffering from plantar fasciitis.
