My feet hurt terribly! I can’t take one more day, particularly in the morning
Is this you? Heel Pain, Plantar Fasciitis or sometimes known as Heel Spurs is a very common problem experienced by thousands of Singaporean. Our feet support the entire weight of our bodies for almost all the years of our lives. Plantar Fasciitis can be so painful that it actually prevents you for doing day-to-day tasks.
What causes your heel pain?
This common foot complaint is mainly caused by abnormal pronation/over-pronation (lowering of the arch) of the foot. As a result of over-pronation with every step you take the plantar fascia (band of tissue under the foot) is being stretched, resulting in inflammation, irritation and pain at the attachment of the fascia into the heel bone. In some cases the pain is felt under the foot, in the arch area.
What you can do yourself to ease heel pain
The most effective solution to heel pain is to treat the cause of the problem by correcting abnormal foot mechanics with orthotic insoles and exercises.
Developed by Podiatrists, Footlogics orthotics correct overpronation. By correcting overpronation and supporting the arches these orthotics help release the tension on the Plantar Fascia, thereby treating the cause of Plantar Fasciitis. In addition, a soft shock-absorbing heel pad under the orthotic helps reduce the impact on the painful heel, providing added relief and walking comfort.
Footlogics biomechanical insoles were developed by Podiatrists and have helped many thousands of heel pain sufferers across the UK, Europe, the USA and Australia. A recent Heel Pain study by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) found that by wearing orthotics and doing a number of daily heel pain exercises, 95% of patients experienced substantial, lasting relief from their heel pain symptoms!
