Orthotic Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis | Vionic UK

Plantar fasciitis is a dull to severe pain in your heel caused by a strain and inflammation of your plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a scientific name for “foot tissue.” This particular tissue is a ligament attached at one side to the heel bone. On the other side, the tissue fans out to attach at the base of each of your five toes. Plantar fasciitis is the name for the condition that develops when that tissue becomes inflamed. When the plantar fascia is excessively stretched, micro‑tears can occur, causing this swelling and subsequent pain as well as other foot problems.

CAUSES OF
PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Plantar fasciitis can develop when your feet roll in too far as you take each step. This rolling in, known as over-pronation, can happen for many reasons.

SYMPTOMS OF
PLANTAR FASCIITIS

A sharp pain in the center of your heel will most likely be one of the biggest symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

HOW TO FIND RELIEF

Five Healthy Tips for Preventing or Reducing Plantar Fasciitis

  1. BREAK THE CYCLE WITH SUPPORTIVE FOOTWEAR

    BREAK THE CYCLE WITH SUPPORTIVE FOOTWEAR

    Wearing orthopedic shoes or a plantar fasciitis insole (orthotics) is an easy, effective method of naturally realigning the foot. A groundbreaking study shows Vionic sandals effectively alleviate heel pain. Worn consistently throughout the day, orthotic support is a great first step in the short‑term treatment of plantar fasciitis. Get your shoes for plantar fasciitis today!

  2. STRETCH REGULARLY

    STRETCH REGULARLY

    Keeping your calf muscles limber helps to reduce the strain on the plantar fascia. To stretch your calves and Achilles tendon, stand on the edge of a step, resting your weight on the balls of your feet. Bend your knees for 25 seconds and then straighten. Perform up to five repetitions whenever tightening occurs.

  3. PRESERVE YOUR ARCH WITH EXERCISES

    PRESERVE YOUR ARCH WITH EXERCISES

    While seated and barefoot, try this exercise to alleviate high arch, heel spurs, and plantar fasciitis pain: squeeze your foot as if you have a small marble under the ball of your foot. If you just happen to have a few marbles handy, you can actually practice picking them up between your toes and ball of your foot — and then set them down again. This stretches and helps strengthen the muscles that run under metatarsals (the longest bones in the foot which create its arched shape).

  4. SLOWLY INCREASE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

    SLOWLY INCREASE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

    If you’re a runner, a tried and true method of preventing over‑use injuries is to only increase your mileage by 10% weekly, max. If you’re new to a walking program, the same caution should be exercised. Choose the best shoes with plush cushioning, like a supportive active shoe, a comfortable sneaker, or our specifically designed plantar fasciitis shoes.

  5. ICE AND REST

    ICE AND REST

    After mild stretching, use a frozen water bottle to roll under the arch of your foot for 10-20 minutes or apply a cold pack to the bottom of your heel. It may be possible to make an active recovery by wearing Vio Motion technology to keep your feet naturally aligned, therefore reducing strain on the plantar fascia, while moving throughout your day.
