Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
The plantar fascia is a thick ligament that attaches from the heel bone to the base of the toes. It's the main support for the arch of your foot. When this ligament gets inflamed heel pain results. Plantar Fasciitis is most often seen in runners, pregnant women, people who wear shoes that do not properly support their feet, and overweight individuals.
The Best Cure - Orthotics
Custom molded orthotics increase your quality-of-life by improving your posture and balance. Naturally, they're effective for preventing or correcting the most common foot conditions such as bunions, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis.
We've found that orthotics can also speed up recovery time from some ankle, knee, hip and low back problems as well. Our custom-made orthotics are manufactured from the information taken from a high-tech 3D scanner we have at our office. The scanner ensures pinpoint accuracy to correct your specific foot problems.
Conventional plastic orthotics and arch supports are often far too hard and rigid, and fail to flex in response to movement. This impairs natural foot function, which over time can cause foot muscles to grow passive, decreasing muscle strength and arch flexibility.
The Foot Levelers leather orthotics provide more cushioning than plastic orthotics, which facilitates utilization of the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and proprioceptors. This helps keep your feet and arches active, healthy and toned.
