Problem: Plantar Fasciitis (Heel & Arch pain)

Plantar Fasciitis ( creating Heel pain, Heel spurs, and Arch pain ) is an inflammation caused by excessive stretching of your plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue which runs along the bottom surface of the foot, attaching at the bottom of the heel bone and extending to the forefoot. When the plantar fascia is excessively stretched, this can cause plantar fasciitis, which can lead to heel pain, arch pain, and heel spurs.

Plantar Fasciitis can be caused by any combination of the following: Over-pronation of the foot, flat feet, high arches, a sudden increase in physical activity from work or exercise, excessive weight on the foot attributed to pregnancy or bodyweight, tight calf muscles or wearing non-supportive shoes.

Solution:

Proper-fitting, supportive shoes may provide significant relief from Plantar Fasciitis. Orthotics and/or arch supports provide additional layers of cushioning while providing a foundation that promotes natural foot alignment.

Having both of your feet measured and digitally scanned at a full-service shoe store will provide important information in the shoe and orthotic selection process.

Problem: Metatarsalgia (forefoot pain)

Metatarsalgia is a general term used to denote a painful foot condition in the metatarsal region of the foot ( the area just before the toes, more commonly referred to as the ball-of-the-foot ). This is a common foot disorder that can affect the bones and joints at the ball-of-the-foot. Metatarsalgia ( ball-of-foot-pain ) is often located under the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th metatarsal heads, or more isolated at the first metatarsal head ( near the big toe ).

Metatarsalgia is mainly attributed to a drop or collapse of the metatarsal arch. The arch flattens and the bone ends move closer together causing the soft tissue to be pinched or trapped between the bones. With every step, the arch rises and falls causing repeated stress in the area.

Solution:

The correct supportive shoes with a low heel-to-toe drop can provide significant relief from Metatarsalgia. Insole upgrades with a Metatarsal pad can also supply additional layers of cushioning and relief while providing a foundation that promotes natural foot alignment.

Problem: Arthritis (inflammation of the foot joints)

Arthritis is a disease characterized by the inflammation of the cartilage and lining of the body's joints. Inflammation causes redness, warmth, pain and swelling. Arthritis can occur in any joint and takes away normal pain-free function. Since each foot has 26 bones and over 30 joints, the foot and ankle are major targets for arthritis. The primary targets for arthritis are people over the age of 50.

There are two main types of arthritis:

Osteoarthritis. ( commonly called “wear and tear” arthritis ) is the gradual wearing out of the joint cartilage that comes with age. Movement becomes very difficult and painful. The pain and swelling worsens while standing or walking, and stiffness usually occurs after periods of rest. Old injuries can also result in arthritis years later even if the injured joint received proper medical attention.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis that can cause deformities of the joints ( bunions, hammertoes, claw toes ) and general fatigue. This chronic condition usually affects more than one joint and sometimes affects all the joints in the body.

Solution:

The correct accommodative & cushioned shoes can provide significant relief from Arthritis of the foot and ankles. Insole upgrades with added cushioning can also supply additional relief by providing proper foot alignment.
