Best Products for Plantar Fasciitis

Thursday, 10 September 2015  |  Alex

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition that affects thousands of people in the UK every year — including everyone from long-distance runners and athletes to elderly or overweight people. Caused by hundreds of tiny tears in the Plantar Fascia (a tissue running along the arch of your foot), plantar fasciitis can cause extreme pain and discomfort, especially early in the morning. While plantar fasciitis rarely requires surgical intervention, the condition can have a large effect on your quality of life and can persist for years.

Fortunately, sufferers of plantar fasciitis do not have to suffer alone. At Health and Care we have a number of ideal products to help you get over your Plantar Fasciitis — while most people would suggest an insole and be done with it, we offer a more holistic approach. While insoles are undoubtedly excellent for dealing with plantar fasciitis, the more weapons you have in your arsenal, the easier your recovery will be. Here are 10 of the very best products for Plantar Fasciitis, available for purchase from Health and Care.

Silipos Plantar Fasciitis Arch Sleeve

Silipos Plantar Fasciitis Arch SleeveOne of the most popular products in the fight against plantar fasciitis is the Silipos Plantar Fasciitis Arch Sleeve and it is no surprise considering the superb results that it achieves. Designed by podiatrists, the Silipos Arch Sleeve gives compression and support to the arch of your foot and helps to prevent the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. The unique structure of the sleeve coupled with the ergonomically shaped gel support helps to prevent the "rolling" of your ankles, which in turn reduces strain on the tendons of your feet.

The arch sleeve is an ideal product for people already using an insole as it can be used even when you are not wearing your shoes. This round the clock protection ensures you're always working to prevent your condition.


Orthosleeve FS6 Plantar Fasciitis Foot Sleeves

OrthoSleeve FS6 Plantar Fasciitis Foot SleevesSupplied in a pair, the Orthosleeve FS6 Plantar Fasciitis Foot Sleeves are the ultimate package for ensuring that your feet have protection against plantar fasciitis. Designed to be used with socks, shoes and shoe insoles, the FS6 Sleeves provide you with that extra level of protection for your feet, getting you on the road to recovery.

Like the Strassburg Sock, the Orthosleeve Plantar Fasciitis Foot Sleeves can be used while sleeping with minimal disruption, protecting you at a time where shoe insoles have no effect. The ultra-slimline design makes them the perfect alternative to people who find night socks bulky and impractical.


Aircast Plantar Fasciitis AirHeel

Aircast Plantar Fasciitis AirheelAircast is one of the premier names in the support market with illustrious fans including Andy Murray, who uses an Aircast Support while playing. Try the Aircast Plantar Fasciitis AirHeel and you'll soon discover the reason why people are so loyal to their Aircast supports.

Not content with providing support to the arch of the foot (and helping you to recover from conditions including plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinitis in the process), the AirHeel has a number of other benefits. Two air cells located under the arch pulsate as you move, reducing swelling in the affected area and improving circulation. Simply slip the AirHeel on like a sock and reap the benefits!


Pediroller Foot Massager

Pediroller Foot MassagerDesigned to match the contours of the foot, the Pediroller Foot Massager provides an easier way to massage the bottom of your foot, providing relief from plantar fasciitis. By simply rolling the Pediroller underneath your foot for three to five minutes twice a day, you can relieve pain and help to stimulate circulation in the fascia region.

For even better relief, the Pediroller can be frozen, meaning that the benefit of massage is coupled with the benefit of icing. This protection on two fronts is one of the reasons that the Pediroller is such a trusted and beloved product when it comes to foot pain.


Dura Soft Foot & Ankle Ice Pack Wrap

Dura Soft Foot & Ankle Ice Pack WrapIcing your aching areas is one of the easiest ways of getting relief from pain and the Dura Soft Foot & Ankle Ice Pack Wrap is the perfect product for icing your feet. Specifically designed to wrap around your foot and ankle, the Durasoft provides more reliable protection than an old bag of frozen peas or even other ice packs.

The ice inserts of the Dura Soft is constructed from gel cells and as these cells are separated, the wrap retains flexibility. If you require hot treatment, the Dura Soft is designed to accommodate you, meaning that you can use the therapy that is suited to your needs.

Now that you've seen the vast array of products that are available for countering plantar fasciitis, you'll understand that it is not only what's going into your shoes that you need to concentrate on. While shoe insoles are a useful tool against pain in the plantar region, they are by no means the only solution. You may find that something you'd completely discounted before can end up being the thing that will finally make the breakthrough.
