Orthotics for plantar fasciitis are specially designed devices that redistribute pressure and provide support and cushioning to alleviate pain associated with this common foot condition. Plantar fasciitis is characterised by inflammation and discomfort in the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot.
Orthotics for plantar fasciitis aim to reduce stress on the plantar fascia by providing arch support, cushioning, and proper alignment to the foot. These orthotic inserts can be custom-made by a podiatrist and are worn inside your footwear. By offering stability, shock absorption, and redistributing pressure, orthotics for plantar fasciitis can help individuals manage their symptoms, enhance foot function, and promote healing.
