A few Summers ago I got plantar fasciitis that lasted a full year… No fun! Finally I went out and got a pair of these Feetures socks and then another 10 pairs over the following months… After that I got special insoles/inserts. The pain in my foot got better by the day and after a month or two I was 100%. Besides the special socks and insoles, I also used a foam roller on my calves once a day. If you want to heal or prevent plantar fasciitis use these tips.
What is plantar fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the fibrous tissue (plantar fascia) along the bottom of your foot that connects your heel bone to your toes.
This injury can cause intense or annoying heel pain, preventing you from performing at your best.
Main causes of plantar fasciitis
In most cases, people’s problem with plantar facia is tight calves… In the meantime, most people think that you need to roll the bottom of your foot with a golf or tennis ball.
Instead, stretch your calves and roll them with a roller… See how below.
How long the pain can last: 3 months up to a year if you don’t treat it right.
While you’re healing from this injury, don’t wear sandals.
If you want to get better fast make sure you wear good shoes with these amazing insoles – even when you’re at home.
Foam roller exercises
After I had gotten all the socks, shoes and inserts the pain in my foot got a lot better…
Although, there was still a little pain…
Once I learned how to do this exercise using a foal roller I knew it would help – and it did.
To this day I am fully healed from plantar fasciitis, but I still do the foam roller and wear the foot gear, especially if I am going to be on my feet for 3-4 hours straight.
Stretches and strength exercises to do at home
There are a few easy stretches you can do at home.
Leaning against a wall with your injured foot on the ground furthest away from the wall. In addition, bring your other foot/leg across the body.

Insoles for training and casual
Plantar fasciitis insoles/orthotics will help!
I got a pair for $89 that were so good I got a 2nd, one for training and the other for casual.
You can try different brands and see what’s best for you, but when it comes to your health don’t skimp.
Socks to help with plantar fasciitis
These plantar fasciitis feetures socks are amazing!!
The way they are made to support your plantar facia is unique and well worth the extra money.
Most big sports stores like Academy don’t carry these socks, so it’s easier to get them online.
Good shoes to help with plantar fasciitis
I’m not a fan of spending money on just anything, but when it comes to your health it’s worth it!!
A good pair of shoes with thick soles…
Test your shoes by bending them at the sole. If they bend really easily, they aren’t good for your plantar fasciitis… So get a stronger sole, usually thicker ones.
