Dealing with Plantar Fasciitis can be difficult, to say the least! There are numerous options you can try including stretching exercises, anti-inflammatories, supportive shoes, specialized socks, foot splints and arch supports. In our experience, each of these options can help when dealing with a pesky case of Plantar Fasciitis. One of the best options we find is using a good arch support so the foot stays supported throughout your day. Finding the best arch supports may be a difficult challenge since you have to take into consideration the shoes in which the arch support will be worn and your foot type. Before you purchase any pair of arch supports for Plantar Fasciitis, (we recommend visiting any of our stores for a free foot analysis.) We can help you find the best plantar fasciitis orthotics based on your foot type, gait (the way you walk) and most importantly your shoes!
How Arch Support Inserts Help Plantar Fasciitis
If you’re developing plantar fasciitis, you will need to have supportive shoes and it will relieve pain. A bone growth on the heel bone is known as a spur. Where it connects to the plantar fascia on the underside of the heel bone is frequently where it is found. From the heel to the ball of the foot, this extensive connective tissue band runs. During the activity, this connective tissue serves as a shock absorber and holds the arch together. Running, wearing ill-fitting shoes, and being overweight can all cause the plantar fascia to become overstretched. The arch pain and inflammation caused by the tissue tugging on the bone might then cause discomfort. The plantar fascia is a thick, robust ligament that can become irritated and inflamed when it is stretched or strained due to any of these risk factors, or even just in normal life, resulting in excruciating heel bone pain.
Common foot problems can cause pain in your hips, back, and knees, which is why arch supports were created. Plantar fasciitis arch support inserts will provide relief from pain that comes from foot problems by giving your feet the support they need in shoes that don’t come with good support. Orthotic insoles can provide pain relief when you wear them properly. Arch support and plantar fasciitis shoe inserts are available in different designs, flexibilities, and sizes to ensure a perfect fit and effective pain relief and rehabilitation.
How Do I Choose The Best Arch Support?
Consider the following factors to choose the best arch support to help you with plantar fasciitis:
In many ways, your feet are the most important part of your body. Transverse arch support is ideal for plantar fasciitis because it helps to distribute your body weight more evenly over your feet, which in turn increases your stability. Plantar fasciitis insoles that work effectively will give you this stability and balance.
Supports All Four Arches of the Foot
The most effective removable insoles for plantar fasciitis will provide arch support for all four feet, helping to realign the body from the feet up.
Gives You Side-to-Side Stability
People who are on their feet all day, especially if they are working on hard surfaces like asphalt or concrete, require plantar fasciitis inserts that provide stability in both the longitudinal and transverse planes. A good insert offers the optimum amount of inner and outer longitudinal support for people suffering from plantar fasciitis.
Works in a Variety of Shoes
Choose versatile arch supports for plantar fasciitis because you will want to wear them daily to preserve your heels and alleviate pain. Some arch supports are more suited for rugged shoes like work boots or athletic sneakers, while others are more at home in dressier footwear like sandals or flats.
Dress shoes, flats, sandals, and even high heels should all fit comfortably inside an arch support. Arch supports for plantar fasciitis are pain free, fashionable, and functional. Not telling anyone else is fine if you don't want to, but you won't be helping anyone else by doing so.
The Heel Cup Cradles and Cushions The Foot
Plantar fasciitis arch supports should feature a heel cup that cradles and cushions your foot to correct your foot and absorb "step shock," in addition to aligning your body up the kinetic chain with better stability, balance, and evenly distributed pressure.

Arch Support FAQs
Can arch supports help with plantar fasciitis?
Heel discomfort can be alleviated with the help of arch support, which can be provided by either store-bought or custom-made orthotics. Cushioning the plantar fascia and giving the foot a more natural form, arch supports are a must for those who spend a lot of time on their feet.
Can regular shoes cause plantar fasciitis?
It can be made worse by wearing tight shoes or heels that are too high in relation to the toes. Not only does this footwear prevent your foot from assuming its natural position, but it also puts extra strain on your plantar fascia and other tender spots.
What happens if you ignore plantar fasciitis?
Stress and irritation to the plantar fascia can cause tiny tears in the fascia to develop over time. If you ignore this problem, your pain levels will rise gradually, and the rips in your plantar fascia might potentially expand in size and number, leaving your foot more susceptible to rupture and permanent disability.
Does everyone with plantar fasciitis or heel spurs need custom orthotics?
Not really. Simply buying a new pair of shoes with good arch support will suffice most often. However, custom orthotics are typically necessary for total and long-term alleviation of plantar fasciitis if you have had it for more than 6 months, have had it on multiple occasions, have tried various therapies without success, or just have poor foot mechanics. If you do not fall into one of these categories, a prefabricated orthotic may be all that is necessary for you. Prefabricated orthotics, like bespoke orthotics, are most effective for heel discomfort if they have a greater arch profile.
