How To Heal Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis - what a pain! It’s a common and dreaded foot problem that many individuals can experience in their lifetime. If you have pain on the sole of your foot, you might just be unfortunate enough to be feeling it. Luckily, there are ways to heal plantar fasciitis! In this article, we introduce you to what exactly it is, how long it lasts and what you can do to ease the pain.

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is pain on the bottom of your foot, around your heel and arch. It happens when the plantar fascia tissue is overused or overstretched. This results in inflammation of the tissue (which runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes) and that’s when you start to feel the heel pain. There are many reasons this can happen: unsupportive footwear, standing for long periods of time and lifestyle factors are just a few of the causes of this issue. That’s why it’s so important to wear comfortable and supportive footwear.

How long does plantar fasciitis last?

With plantar fasciitis, you may feel a very sore and stabbing pain, especially in the morning when you take your first steps after waking up. As you get up and move around, the pain can improve slightly, but it is unlikely to fully go away. It can return after long periods of standing or sitting and is very uncomfortable for those who fall victim to it. The pain can last for many months which is why it’s important to counteract it. Ignoring plantar fasciitis can result in chronic heel pain that may interrupt your daily life and activities and ultimately might lead to further issues such as foot, knee, hip or back problems.

How to Heal Plantar Fasciitis

How to heal plantar fasciitis quickly!

The good news is, you can usually ease the pain of plantar fasciitis yourself through lifestyle changes, stretching and proper footwear. It’s recommended to opt for shoes with cushioned heels and arch support as well using insoles when healing plantar fasciitis. Revere footwear is designed with this in mind, around the concept of supporting the foot to help alleviate any pains caused by plantar fasciitis.

Our footbed with built-in arch support has been carefully molded to the natural contours of the foot. This ensures optimum foot positioning, support and comfort when you’re walking or standing for long periods of time. It also maintains the foot shape and evenly disperses pressure across the foot. For those of you who wear orthotics or think you might need them for eliminating such pain, our contoured footbed can be easily removed to fit your custom insoles, AFO’s or braces in our orthotic sneakers and sandals. Plus, our wedges come with a metatarsal raise to reduce pressure under the ball of the foot. That offers versatility and comfort when searching for the best shoes for plantar fasciitis - you can rest assured no matter what style you opt for, there’s a stylish option to suit your needs and wants.

 Walk pain free

We understand that it can be tricky to find sandals that are fully supportive and help with this kind of foot pain, but we made this a priority. We want you to feel supported whether you opt for sandals with back straps, a closed heel or orthotic wedge sandals. That’s why our styles come with adjustable straps as well as the Revere strap extensions for a wider fit. Each extension has been designed for each strap on the shoe and allows you to conceal and support bunions and hammer toes. This level of comfort is essential for targeting plantar fasciitis. On top of that, our shoes come with a complimentary Revere personalized fit kit that contains a full filler, half filler and shoe horn, so you can customize the fit of your shoes. Never underestimate the importance of having shoes that fit perfectly when healing plantar fasciitis.
