Heel pain in the morning, heel pain after walking, or heel pain after running or other activities can all be signs of plantar fasciitis. It can be caused due to straining the part of your foot connecting your heel to your toes (plantar fascia).
It can also be caused by:
- Exercising on hard surfaces.
- Over-stretching the sole of your foot during exercise.
- Doing a lot of walking, running, or standing up.
- Wearing shoes with poor support.
Ignoring this condition can result in worse conditions, hindering regular activities such as work or exercise. Changing the way that you walk to ease the pain caused by plantar fascia can lead to foot, knee, hip or back problems.
Here at Feetlife we offer a range of products that can help ease pain and discomfort from heel pain caused by plantar fasciitis.
Carnation PediRoller Kit
The PediRoller is an exercise aid, offering immediate relief from common heel and arch foot pain. Used regularly, the PediRoller can maintain healthy feet and address problems of heel and arch pain such as plantar fasciitis.
The PediRoller helps stretch the plantar fascia, a band of connective tissue running along the bottom of the foot, increasing flexibility and reducing pain. Its ridged design massages tired feet, reducing tension and stimulating circulation to the affected areas.
It can be used as cold therapy by chilling or freezing before use, which will help reduce inflammation and combat pain. Easy to use, the PediRoller does not require batteries or electrics and can be used quickly while sitting reading, watching TV or just relaxing. Consistent use should improve the symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis.
