Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation caused by excessive stretching of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a band of fibrous tissue that runs along the bottom surface of the foot. Excessive stretching of this tissue can cause this condition. The most common symptom is pain in the heel or arch area in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest.
Aetrex Orthotics are designed to help keep the foot in the neutral position throughout the gait cycle and to reduce stretching of the plantar fascia. Within days of use, most people begin experience relief from the pain or discomfort.
