Plantar Fasciitis Compression Socks Ease Symptoms

Tuesday, 07 February 2017 00:00

Plantar fasciitis compression socks, created by foot and ankle company Bitly, have been proclaimed to reduce pain and enhance daily performance. Customers who have purchased the plantar fasciitis socks have spoken about the premium support offered in a range of sizes, the hygienic fabric that doesn’t trap odors, the comfortable all-day wear, the quality construction from moisture-wicking fabric, and the sport technology designed to stimulate blood flow. Plantar fasciitis is a condition that involves the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. Symptoms typically include a stabbing pain near the heel.

Plantar fasciitis can be very painful and inconvenient. If you are experiencing heel pain or symptoms of plantar fasciitis, contact Dr. David Luongo  from Westside Podiatric Associates, LLC. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, known as the plantar fascia, and causes mild to severe heel pain.

What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

  • Excessive running
  • Non-supportive shoes
  • Overpronation
  • Repeated stretching and tearing of the plantar fascia

How Can It Be Treated?

  • Conservative measures – anti-inflammatories, ice packs, stretching exercises, physical therapy, orthotic devices
  • Shockwave therapy – sound waves are sent to the affected area to facilitate healing and are usually used for chronic cases of plantar fasciitis
  • Surgery – usually only used as a last resort when all else fails. The plantar fascia can be surgically detached from the heel

While very treatable, plantar fasciitis is definitely not something that should be ignored. Especially in severe cases, speaking to your doctor right away is highly recommended to avoid complications and severe heel pain. Your podiatrist can work with you to provide the appropriate treatment options tailored to your condition.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact our offices located in Midtown, Manhattan and Paramus, NJ. We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
