Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Fortunately, there are several self-treatment options for relief and support, which includes wearing plantar fasciitis socks and compression sleeves.
About Plantar Fasciitis
The plantar fascia is the ligament that connects the heel bone to your toes and supports the arch of your foot. Plantar fasciitis is common among middle-aged people, as well as those who spend long amounts of time on their feet (athletes, soldiers etc.). It’s caused by straining the fascia ligament, which can lead to pain and swelling. Treatments can include resting your feet, icing the area to reduce swelling, calf and toe stretches, and wearing shoes and socks with extra cushioning and arch support.
Plantar fasciitis socks and compression sleeves provide extra pressure and support along the fascia ligament. This relieves the area of pain and discomfort so you can go about your day worry-free. Check out the best socks and compression sleeves for plantar fasciitis.
